Starting up jumping lessons

Which I feel safe to say I'm a bit nervous about.

I've had Twende jumping before, but injury ptu us out and made us start over, so once I finally got the flat, I started to train him jumping, but I realized I needed help not too far in... So I'm going to start taking jumping lessons for the first time in about a year. She's going to help me train him to jump, because I'm just better with training technical stuff. Twende decided the jumps are scarier inside, too, so he likes to refuse even just ground poles.

I don't know why I'm nervous... I'm excited, too, because I get to finally, fianlly jump him again, and we'll go somewhere with it this time.

Sorry, just had to get it out somewhere. (: I'm starting on Monday and am having them every other Monday because I have to pay for them.

Thanks all. ^^

I just got home from it, and he did so, so well with it. He did refuse the ground pole, so my trainer lunged him over it, and he gave in quickly and easily. After that, I got back on and went over the ground pole, then we turned it into a little jump, and he was perfect. (:

Aww, you should do fine! Oooh, glad to hear you did well. :) Ah, refusing. That's good you kept him going, though. Nice job!

Ride more, worry less.
