Well, that isnt entirely true, this was my first time jumping at a show:
So I didnt really count that because I didnt finish my course. Maddie is a nut... Thank the havens that I only leased her. xD I really cant help but giggle when I see myself get left behind at the second jump. That combo was supposed to be a two-three stride.
Anyways, but now I have a different horse, and he is amazing! He has shown up to 3' and is great with riders that are new to jumping (ive been jumping for 1 year and am self taught). I havent been able to ride this week, but I have ridden him once and feel okay about my eq. (I fixed my stirrups so my eq. is a bit better now). This is a fun little schooling show, just to help riders get more used to showing. Ive shown on the flat a lot, but not o/f.
They have three jumping classes I can do; Cross Pole (middle of the cross is 18"), Low Working Hunter (2'6) and Hunt Seat Eq. Over Fences (2'3). Right now im for sure doing the Cross Pole class, I know I could do that. Now im trying to decide if I should do the Hunt Sea eq. o/f class. Im not totally sure if I should, since it my first real over fences class, its my first show with Bear, and I havent been jumping that height for a while (I havent really been jumping at all). I know I could if I rode a few times this week. Im def. not going to do the Low Working Hunters, maybe in a few months, haha.
So what do you guys think? Should I just do the Cross Pole class? Or should I do the Hunt Seat eq. o/f too?
Im also doing Showmanship, Hunt Seat Eq. Not to Jump, Hunter Pleasure, and Eqq and Spoon (just sounded fun, so I thought I would give it a shot).
Let me know what you think!
