Talking first time jumping since I fell!

so awhile back I fell coming off a jump when Lucy put her head down and sped and I couldn't sit up in time to correct her. Today I jumped for the first time since I fell! It was awesome! I barely felt nervous and once I was over it was the best feeling! I sat right up and went back to trot like I'd been jumping yesterday! I'm so freaking happy right now! The only downside of the lesson was that Lucy made a HUGE Deal out of trot poles (odd considering she does them regularly and made NO fuss about the jump) but she did NOT want to lift her foot the inch higher to get over the pole, it was such a fight to get her over them.....

Thanks guys! It was so awesome it felt so natural! I still don't understand what Lucy's problem with the trot poles was but horses aren't all that logical
