I would highly highly suggest you get safety stirrups to begin with, then start working with a qualified trainer.
If your feet are going through the stirrups on a regular basis... well that's... dangerous.
I agree...i wouldnt be jumping for awhile either, even when you get better, until you can keep those heels way down and only balls of your feet in the stirrups :)
