    Great Lesson and Too Ahead?

    Today I had an amazing lesson. I stopped pumping at the canter, stopped dropping my inside shoulder when turning, and sat the trot a lot better. My trainer also told me that I jumped the best she has ever seen, even though I did cut a few corners and then we ended up jumping early. But as soon as I knew I cut the corner to much I know he is going to take off early and I was ready for most of them. =) I feel really good about them.

    Also;

    I have been reading other posts where people didn't start jumping until they have ridden for about 2 to 6 years of riding. I have been riding for about 5 months now and can already jump 2ft 6. I usually only do 2ft 3 but that was a one day thing to see how high I was ready for, and that's about as high as I could go without having some trouble. I rode when I was about 10 for two years, english style but in a western saddle until about the last four to five months. I then moved and couldn't ride for two years and then I finally started riding again, and I actually jumped on the second lesson over little 6 inch cross rails in August. Am I to ahead or anything? I have been to my first show in October to get the feel of showing for the 2012 show team and got 7th place.

    People learn at different paces. You may just be a quick learner. When I was learning to ride, my trainer made sure we had a strong foundation before even looking at a jump. I don't remember how long it took me to get a strong foundation I just remember doing lunge line lessons for what seemed like forever.
