Hi guys! I've been riding Western since I was three, & I'm now 17. I've always wanted to jump, but I just now got a english saddle & a girth to fit one of my horses. I've jumped streams, mud, logs, etc in Western, no problem. This is new for both me & my horse, Smokey. He's a 16.1 hand, long legged, athletic Paint. I rode him in English today & he did really well at a walk & trot, which is all I did since the ground was mushy & wet.
Any tips to help me along?
