Well done! X 100000!! I am a bundle of nerves when I jump, so my dressage instructer, whose married to my jumping instructer, cames over with their 8 month old son, who likes to sing and "talk". And I'm so busy smiling and thinking how cute he is that I don't even notice the jumps! LOL

MIE I'm so the same!!! Give me a cross-country fence any day of the week! Maybe it's that there are other things to consider out on cross - the slope of the ground, what the take-off/landings look like, where you're headed next (which can be much more varied than in stadium), etc etc - that we just don't focus on the jump itself.... In stadium that blaring red rail over the roll-top is tough not to look at eh?!

When I was a teenager - give me a horse and a bunch of jumps and see you later! I was fearless, would never have thought twice about a jump being 'scary' or too big! Now I see anything over 2'6 and go "IT'S FREAKING HUGE!!!" But that could also be the horse I'm on too! He's a power-house! He likes is long spots and he likes going on a 14' stride rather than a 12' stride. Hell, if you let him have his way he'd take a 16' stride around the ring and make it look like a polished graceful hunter. I didn't realize until we had our first pictures at our first show taken how HIGH he jumps, he clears fences at 2'6 by 2' - so that made me realize why I would look at a 2'9 fence and cringe...

I think someone mentioned it in one of their posts previously, but learning not to look is the HARDEST thing! I still have troubles with it! We have these dang wavey planks at the place I ride, and if my coach puts those in the plan I start getting cold and clammy and nauseated! I Cannot Not look at them! And I haven't even had a fall since I was a teenager! :P Go figure that one?!

SO KUDOS TO YOU! :) You're lookin fantastic! It takes a lot of mettle to get back on a horse after a fall and do the same stuff!

I agree, I love XC much more than stadium!!

After dressage and XC, you have a certain placing in the standings. Stadium is so precise and demanding of attention (and on a tired horse to boot). The only way to go is down in your placings!

Yay you on taking that step of kicking your fear in the backside. You're one more step closer to getting what you had back again, and I applaud you on that. I think you are an excellent rider and all of your advice proves VERY helpful to me. Just keep going and have faith in yourself and Nelson!

Thank you! You are very kind and I greatly appreciate your kind and encouraging words :) I guess I don't see what you see though, but I know that we are always harder on ourselves and we are our own worst critics.

You'll have to watch the vids of our first Event in the Eventing Section. We rode our Stadium Phase with no fear! ROAR! Lol

Thank you! I love Nelson so much! It was love at first sight :) Nelson and I have been a team for 3 years now, he's my best buddy and my superhero! Can you believe he's 21?

The dog - lol. It's funny, because Nelson is a seasoned Fox Hunter as well, and he doesn't even get phased by the dogs at all.

We board at a hunter/jumper barn and it cracks me up when other riders who wont even venture out of the area, get all stiff, nervous and tense when the dogs are running around *there are quite a few dogs that are at the barn on a daily basis, that my 2 will play with when I ride*.

Their horses aren't even phased by the dogs, but the riders esculate the situation because they are making it bigger than what it really is, in their minds. I ride a horse for a friend, who is a nutter, and I'll allow my dogs to run around while I am on him. I find that if I remain focused on our ride and not our surroundings, he will too.
