A while back I fell off my favorite horse, Tia in that same kind of situation. Cantering towards a roll top that was like 2'3" (that's as high as we jump at my barn but I might change barns soon to jump higher ), glanced down for half a second and the next thing I know Tia stops. I fly over the jump, the middle of my back hits the metal corner of the jump and I slide down the corner. My back has never been the same since that fall. But I hadn't jumped Tia over the roll top since that fall until just like 2 weeks ago. I was so flipping scared. I had kinda fallen out of love with Tia because of that dang roll top and my dang fear. But now that I've jumped it and I'm starting to get some confidence with it I've fallen back in love with her :)

Ugh, I wish I had a good answer for you MIE, but the sad truth was I took the summer off, which didn't put me in very good stead with my coach, then slowly built up confidence. And now that I've had seven years basically off, I know I'm not doing the heights and lines of what I did as a teenager. My body (tell me about lower leg deterioration!) doesn't forget as easily as it once did.

Thanks MyBeau! I appreciate your kind words :)

horsequeen, I am sorry for your accident as well, but good for you for getting back and on for proceeding forward! It wasn't Tia's fault, but I understand how our fear gets the best of us.

Writer, thanks for reaching out, I do appreciate it. That time off sure does make it much harder doesn't it. I had planned to get back into the swing of things when I moved to the barn I am at now, and I was slowly getting there when the snow came in the Indoor arena over small 2'0" fences and a little bigger, but then Nelson injured his hind right hock and then had a near death colic, so that threw us off for a few months. Then when he was rideable again, it was entirely focused on getting him to gain alot of weight back and reconditioning him. So it was back to alot of dressage, dressage, dressage....then it just got easier to not jump, because I had my excuses.

You've been plagued with set-backs! Time off is a band aid, which I needed at the time, but it made it way more difficult in the long run for sure. I too had an 'excuse' because a couple days after the incident my horse had an absess.

Now with my new horse, I haven't jumped him yet, contenting myself with re-conditioning and flatwork (mine and his). I know the two falls I had at/over fences (I also had a stirrup leather break on the landing over a 4' fence) are still lingering at the back of my mind and nothing will settle those ghosts like a few good clean jumps.
