So first of all let me say that neither me nor my horse has ever had any real training in jumping. I took riding lessons as a kid but that was just walk/trot/a tiny bit of canter, I actually did do a couple lessons at a jumping barn but I quit because I didn't like the trainer, only actually went over jumps once I think. The barn I work & lease my horse at right now is a great place with an extremely competent trainer, but her business is camp & lessons for younger kids, and I never really had ambitions to show, so a lot of what I do I've pretty much taught myself.
My horse Cocoa was bought as an eight year old potential camp horse, all we know of his past is he was an Amish cart pony. They would have gotten rid of him after the first summer except I took a liking to him & have been about the only person to ride him for the past 3 years. So I assume the only jumping he's ever done is with me. He loves it and we've been working our way up the heights..... This is our first time jumping 1'6. Please feel free to be nit picky, whatever, since I haven't really had any critique of my riding in several years
Ok so not letting me upload vids, but for now I uploaded a few pics (which are actually stills from vids....see if I can figure out the vids.....)
