I've been riding for over 20 years, am 27 now, and have never been nervous or lost confidence. Recently I've been working really hard on my jumping.
My new horse Bizz is an amazing jumper, and we have been getting on very well (so far).
I was competing in Discovery (about 1.2m max), but now my instructor wants us to go bigger. Thing is we're schooling at 1.4+, and it's starting to get big! For the first time I feel a flutter of nerves.
I don't know whether they are the first set of jumps that you can't actually 'see over', that's getting to me.
Anyway, any tips for over coming this would be great! (Instructor says we look fine - I'd just like to 'feel' fine). Is it just practice??
