    Agree with the post above. The biggest hurdle is trust. You need to trust your pony, and equally, they need to trust you. Do lots of poles and ground work before you jump so that you are happy and relaxed. Start small, and only build that up once you feel comfortable. It may help to get someone more confident to ride your pony and pop her over a couple of jumps while you watch, this can make you feel at ease knowing that your pony can do it and there is nothing to worry about :) Persevere with it, and it will come with time. The most important thing is to not worry too much and enjoy yourself! Good luck! :)

    Thank you guys, my lesson went well last Sunday. I'll see if I can attach the video I managed to take when I was jumping (which WAS literally a few inches off the ground but I went over in canter and was pretty proud of myself and this mare). I feel ready to move onto a different horse already as I was riding this mare to get my confidence back as that is what she is best at, but she's not that great at jumping slightly bigger. But, this mare has taught me so much, she's a great horse.
