So I've lost ALOT of my jumping confidence. I used to jump 2'6 no problem, but now 1'6 seems really scary! It started at summer camp when I broke my arm over a 2'3 vertical. When I came back from the camp to the barn where I ride my old instructor had stopped teaching, and I started with a new one. I had a few privates and then started riding in a group again. The thing is not only the fear of having a bad fall again scares me, but also we work a lot on the flat, and we usually jump so small (like 1'6), that me and my friends haven't jumped bigger in so long it scares us. When we do jump like 2 foot courses I get REALLY freaked out!
Does anyone have tips that could help me (like how to trust the horse more, make the jump feel/look small in my head, or help me realize that it isn't that big?)
PS- (Random, but) any tips on getting over elevated trot poles well?
