I am starting to learn to jump now and I was wondering how many times a week should I jump?? I read sometimes about horses being worn out at an earliesh age from over jumping so I want to make sure I don't now or in the future!!
I am only jumping very small at about 40 cm (that is my starting point) and I would probably jump about ten times in one ride! I am on holidays( only two more weeks though:( ) so I would ride about 4-5 times a week on the same horse.If i'm not jumping I am going for a trail ride .....My mare I am jumping on is a 7 yr old thoroughbred who has done a little bit of jumping in the past at pony club!
also we don't do any comps or compete or anything
So how many times a week should I jump????
(sorry I am not very good at explaining things!)
