I have my first jumping lesson on Friday in a year and a half. I am super nervous and I have no idea why. I switched to dressage right when I stopped jumping and it is still going to be my primary focus. I shouldn't be nervous. I spent 14 years jumping horses, I was a junior amateur jumper rider, taught lessons for a time, and have trained multiple horses. I shouldn't be nervous about this, but I am. Maybe I'm just worried that I won't be as good as I used to be? I don't know. Sorry for the rant.
Strength is not defined by physical ability. It is determined by your actions and the compassion of your soul.
