So me and my friend want to jump really bad but my trainer hasnt set any lessons up. But now that her bf's (the farrier ;) ) sons are starting to ride and havent had constants lessons like us girls. She's all talking about having them jump and stuff like 4-h...
SO I started jumping on my own. I know the basics from our other jump lessons. Heals down, back flat, don't grip with the knees, grab the mane.
Well now im way to dependent on Gypsy's neck. And can't get off of it, how do I get a better balanced position?
I finally stopped gripping with my knees and actually open them up! So that's good. I tried getting pics but they didnt turn out I will try later.
Gypsy just loves to jump! Its so fun with her although when she gets to excited she gets sloppy. Half halts! Half halts!
