I'm thinking about trying to learn to jump sometime soon but I'm now that familiar with the terms used in jumping so please explain a little. I've been riding English pleasure for a little over 8 years so I'm not really a novice rider but I've never jumped over anything besides a log on a trail ride, which was maybe a foot or a foot and a half tall. I have an eight year old appaloosa mare that is still green but I want to show her pleasure for about a two years before I try anything new on her, but I could be taking lessons while I show her pleasure.
I was also wondering what kind of confirmation is best for jumping. She is my other horse's daughter and she moves and is shaped a lot like her only she is build a little bigger and I have been told that my horse looks like he would be a good jumper. She is not spooky and she is very smart, the first time I rode her she had only been ridden four times bofore and she behaved great. Thanks!
