It was the first time I jumped on that horse, and the first time i jumped on a horse!
He hasn't jumped in 3 months.
(I've jumped ponies before, just not horses).
It was 30 degrees celcius and i was dying of thirst!
I was sweating buckets too which tires a person out, + i wasnt strong enough for that horse.
It was a hard and rough fight.. :/
But I got him to jump in the end!
This horse can jump high! And I mean HIGH!!
Like 160 cm kind of high!
But those are 70-90 cm. jumps.
He just doesnt always WANT to jump and starts looking at the jump and refusing. There's only 3 people who've jumped him, his last owner who sold him to the stables and a girl who had to fight with him a few months before he stopped refusing. And then me.
Oh and, I know my position makes me look like a beginner, but my mind was only thinking "Hands, legs, hands, legs" I even forgot to breathe at some points because I was concentrating so hard!
When the horse falls on the jump, I know thats my fault. I didnt think he'd jump when standing right in front of it! So I wasnt holding him back.
I jumped him for 2-3 months and it got better! I jumped 110 cm. on him then we switched round the course and he started refusing again, even though he'd jumped those jumps before! They just werent standing where they used to. So then I switched to a pony which I had been jumping on for a year, a year ago, so i preferred that alot more since it had a problem with going to fast xD
I dont mind advice, comments or critisizm.
