So basically I really enjoy showjumping, and in my riding lessons we jump once a fortnight and recently the jumps have been getting bigger because we are all improving. They between 2'6" and 2'9", the 2'6 I have no problem with but the higher they get the more nervous I get.
I ride a really safe and confidence giving pony called Arney or another called Hercules most of the time, and they are fantastic jumpers to learn on. Its just I lack confidence in the jumping having had a bad experience a few years ago when I was pushed to jump too high to soon about 3" when I was younger it scared me so much I wouldn't sit on a horse or 6 months. Now my confidence is improving but the thought of jumping just makes me nervous.
My instructor knows I am capable to do it becuase apparently I have a really secure jumping position, so that it isn't the problem I just get really nervous.
Any idea's to help me?
Sorry that was really long!
