I would like to get into jumping

I want to get into jumping but i don't know how to start. do any of you guys know of any good places in North Carolina near the Hickory area that has a good barn or arena for learning to jump?

i'm not even sure if my horse is capable of jumping. we have jumped across mud holes before while trail riding. (because she didn't wanna go through them! silly girl! and instead of stepping over the log she jumps it!) other then that me and her have never really jumped at all but it looks thrilling and seems like a good challenge for us both. but my girl is clumsy and sometimes doesn't pick her feet up high enough and instead of visualizing us gracefully jumping a fence. i see her tripping up is there anyway i could possibly correct tripping and stumbling??

do you think she could be pretty good at it?? and where should i start in teaching her?? and i'm assuming i will definatly have to get a jumping saddle before we start learning because, all i have heard is she should NOT be jumped in a western saddle. although my saddle is extremely light as it is made of nylon not leather!!

Do you have any good confo-suitable pictures we can see of her? Or you can post?

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.
