I do know head injury is not the priority when you fall off. When ive been put in hospital (a few times might i add... God and im only 14 :P) the first thing they do is make sure you havent broken your neck or back and later down the track they will deal with head injury's. Last time i was in there i was having all tests to make sure my back and neck was ok. They told me you can still move even if you have broken your neck and back because the bone may not have moved but one movement might change it and your paralized adn basicly screwed forever. Turns out i had a major head injury, I had a fracture at the back of my skull. To have head injury is serious because there may be bleeding on the brain but usually thats not the most dangerous part of the fall. Just from experience

I think your well on your way. When the girl jumped in her 6th lesson.. I think that's a bad idea. I rode in lessons for two years and didn't start canterin until after year one and I was scared, super scared, then I started trotting cross rails after a year and a half. I really liked jumping but ibwas never taught how to canter the jumps. I had to take two years break before I started riding again( I terribly missed it) but when I started riding at my friend sages house she wanted to canter so I'm like alright and it was fine! Cantering like my favorite thug to do , then I pretty much taught my self to jump at a canter up to 2'9" although my positions bad but I have not yet jumped with an actual saddle(: but you'll get it(: you just need to get over fear
