Recently I've had some problems with jumping. I can jump roughly 2ft, but I can't do 1ft6 Spreads.
It just feels so different cos when we land I get thrown onto her neck every time, even though I try to push back on her neck when I land. My friend tried putting the first part of the spread down so it was just a pole on the ground. But I still got thrown forward (although not so much). She's worried that I will get a phobia of them so she says I should try and do them. Is she right? I've only been riding 4 months or something but I rode when I was little too.
P.S. My Cousin (A very good rider) was thrown forward when doing a spread on my pony so maybe I'm right? Ok your call!
