I'm new to jumping, I only started about a year ago. My trainer says that, when I'm working on my two-point at the walk/trot, I look really good. But usually when I go over jumps, I either get in front or behind the movement (these are only small cross rails & poles 18 in. Off the ground!) Then, I get the breath knocked out of me!
I almost fell off over some grids once, and I've fallen off twice before. I'm SO freaked out now, that we've backed off to just walking/trotting.
I'm sure that some of you here are jumping 4 feet easy and you think I'm crazy to be freaked out over 1 feet parallels, but I'm hoping that you can remember some of the tips & techniques that you learned when you first started!
