    Omg!! -jumps up and down-

    I've had barely any jumping experience and today I had a different riding instructor and she took us over to the jumping arena where we got to trot over these small jumps. We got to do two different courses. It was so much fun. I did so well, while the others had done it before and i've never done such big jumps(they weren't big, but jumping over them felt like they were huge). I was on a pony named Melody who kept over-jumping them. It was fun, I nearly fell off twice, once when she clipped the pole with her back leg and tripped over and the other when she double-over jumped it and I wasn't ready.
    Here's a pic of the tiny jumps that felt like huge. They looked quite like this photo I found on google.

    I am so happy and god I wish I was still at the riding club right now jumping them.

    My parents are trying to get me to shut up still lol.
    I really, really want to go again. But I probaly wont get to jump until next holidays as the riding instructor has to leave until then. :(

    It's great!
    Thank god I've got good balance. The bareback riding we've been doing the last few weeks is paying off :P
    Gosh I love jumping so much better than dressage!

    Haha, well, jumping is dressage. With speed bumps. ;)
    I know, isn't it amazing what bareback can do!? I did a little bareback riding this summer.. my balance is like 100x better

    Bareback is amazing for balance
    True, but apparently I shouldn't have been able to jump those jumps today, coz apparently I can barely control the horse, let alone get it over the jumps :( -points to dressage post- I think it's getting a little vicious..

    Its ok. I learned to jump little stuff when I was just starting to canter. Don't let them in the dressage post get ya down. I read it and it's getting out of hand over there. :) just be proud of yourself!

    So do I! But you still need dressage, otherwise you'll get a bad/lazy position.

    But jumping defiantly gives the biggest rush, ey?

    Don't listen. I've been told the same thing. I have a few horses that I cannot control well at times- most of the time because I am not thinking, I'm panicking, or I'm just not trying hard enough- and we jump anyhow. I have never actually delt with a jumping problem with any of these horses.
