    I personally think the only people who don't like it are the ones who are scared of it.

    You sort of have a point...MOST people I would think. Others just don't like jumping for other reasons.

    Haha yeah, I don't really see those reasons though. I couldn't think of any reason not to like jumping?

    I used to resent jumping and English riding because I was a strict Western rider and liked being the "cowgirl" rider lol. Now that I have an English horse, though....I get the thrill of jumping!

    I wouldn't say that. I AM scared to go too high, but I mostly just don't love it as much as I "should". I prefer a good trot/canter trail ride to anything.

    That's rather narrow minded. Some people don't want to jump because of the stress it can cause on the horse's joints, other people just like other disciplines better and therefore it wouldn't make any sense for them to jump. Others may not have the resources available to do proper jumping, and some just find the cons of jumping to outweigh the pros.

    The most important thing about jumping is to be balanced through your lower leg. I always use a neck strap to help train learning riders. If you establish the lower leg balance first by doing some simple exercises in shorter stirrups and using a neck strap for stability you can train this as a movement pattern. Once established then lower your stirrups to your safe length and continue to train lower leg balance.
