don't take offense or anything! I've been riding for 8 years, and I'm only getting good enough to get to novice level! Eventing is a hard sport to move up in because of the dangers of it.
lol none taken. Safety is important and I will be sure to be careful. I too have been riding(taking lessons) for...wait let me count...nearly eight years and we havent started consistently jumping yet. So Sal and I still have a llllooonnnnngggg way to go! :)
Everyone always does. Even George Morris, The GOD of modern jumping, says he always is learning something new. Like at my last lesson, the jumps were TINY (2'3" MAYBE) but we were working on turning, and it was difficult at first, but the I got into the hang of it. There's always something new to learn and try. That's what great about our sport
