I can't really afford a trainer so I'm going to be most of the work myself. I've been watching videos and chatting with friends who are jumpers and I was wondering if the wonderful folks here at HF had any suggestions for how to get him started and what to watch for. Here are a few questions, but please don't limit your answers to just these.
1) What sort of equipment will I need, besides the actual jumps?
2) How can I tell if he's not going to be any good at it? I think this is my biggest question, because I don't want to push him to do something if he isn't going to enjoy it or be good at it.
3) Um, that's all the questions I can think of...
I have a friend who can help me with my post and riding before she moves in November, but after that I'm pretty much on my own. Also, it might be hard to do work every day because I have a baby in the house but we'll try!
