I agree. I absolutely HATE when trainer's dot hat with their students,leading them to believe they can jump after a handful of rides.It puts the student at a huge risk of hurting themselves.They barely know the basics at that point,and you let them jump? I just don't get it. -_- I was riding for about 2 or 3 years when I was allowed to go over a small cross rail at a trot for the first time,and that was because I knew what I had learned very well and could stay in control of my horse.
I'm sure you're a great rider sweetie, we all fall off, it happens to the best of us. Don't think you're not good at what you do just because you didn't jump like that other girl and fell off instead, her trainer let her do something she was not ready to do in any way because of a lack of experience. You're gaining experience by falling, you need to learn how to fall off and get right back on to be a great rider.
