Just stay calm. You need to let the horse know its no big deal to go over it, especially not knowing how she will react about it. Also, don't look at the jump, look forward. Horses can tell if you are looking down, then they will look down, ect ect. As long as you stay calm, and strong, and try to make the crossrail as "unscary" as possible, it should go well.
Have fun and good luck. And be ready for anything, from a tiny step to a big jump, just make sure you are secure in the saddle when going over it the first time not knowing how she will react.
Let us know how it goes!
