I've been a western rider for most of my life, besides some English lessons when I was younger. I won some ribbons but don't remember much of the actual training.
My very best friend does jumping and cross country and we started talking about it and I really think it may be something I want to do.
Western events have sort of fizzled out around here and I have an English barn and trainer literally 10 minutes from my house.
My friend would obviously train me, and I could always take a few lessons from the barn if I needed extra guidance.
I am really interested in cross country.
What do I need? I have the horse. I videoed her jumping today and will post a link so you can tell me if she could hack it or not she isn't trained in anything so I was thinking that's what I can use her for.. Hopefully she can, because I don't have another jumping horse.
What does English entail? Where would I even start? My friend is away at college so I'm sort of teaching myself right now.
Here is my horse. Is her conformation even good for jumping? She is 14 hands.
Still shots of her jumping. I know these Aren't the best....
I know these aren't the best. Let me know if a video would be more useful!! Posted via Mobile Device
