    I don't agree with saying this

    I don't think she should be jumping yet.

    I think if her instructor thinks she's ready to jump,then she must be ready.
    I also think with more work on her position she will be a pro at it soon.glad to hear its going well with the lunging.at least she looks like she is having loads of fun which is the main thing.

    Thank you. She is ready but we are only in the middle. She has alot of trouble with the postition of her hands and feet and we uses the lunging and all sort of things to get them better and she's alright at that then we try over trotting poles...fine then jumoing..not so good.She'll have some bad ones and some good ones. Oh well practice makes perfect.

    If she is having trouble on the ground with her position, stay with groundwork. I don't believe she is ready to advance to jumping when she has yet to find her correct position. Also, for ANY rider, especially one that has such an incorrect position, safety shouldn't be forgotten. Her foot can so easily be caught in the stirrup, especially with a poor seat and balance. If I were teaching her, I'd make her wear the proper attire and I would go back to the basics. She is only skipping the basic and necessary training which will only create bad habits. I would have also made sure the saddle fit properly for both the horse and rider before allowing her to jump. If you were talking to someone, who was taking the pictures? Who was watching her? I strongly disagree with this. I think it is your responsibility as a trainer to ensure her safety and the horse's comfort.

    Just a quick note. We have been working and her seat is not perfect on groundwork its just when she's jumping she gets confused.
