    I don't like jumping and I guess it's because my bad experiences. I hadn't been taught how to jump but our group were riding out and we jumped a lot! Not really high jumps, just like these: (they were two of the jumps we made)

    But as a begginer jumper it wasn't a good idea for me, but I did well. My horse bucked after every jump and tried to break out, but I could hold him and there wasn't any problem until one jump ->

    I didn't know that there was a wide hole before the jump and I was ready to jump just a little, but as my horse caught sight of the obstacle he fastened up and made a huge jump because of the dike in front of the little jump. So I felt on his neck and after a short galopping I felt off. Still then I don't really like jumping as I still can't... I know the best thing would be to look for a place where I could learn to jump, but I really don't want to do it...

    (sorry for the long post :) )

    I love bounces and boxes stacked up really high. It was really scary for me at first, but then I relaxed and it was amazing!

    I can't wait until I start jumping. I especially can't wait to be able to jump tackless.
    I love to watch stadium jumping, have since I was a kid. I was weird like that. Now I especially love to watch the 6 bar jumping at spruce meadows (I got that right? I'm really bad at remembering such things, I hope you all get the point haha)

    I adore jumping. I find that jumping small jumps during my flatwork exercises really helps in driving me into the saddle and keeping good hand and torso positions. It's just **** helpful!

    I love jumping, but jumping can be dangerouse so my opinion on jumping changes, if someone is training a horse to jump then I think the rider should have someone there to help out and also know how to control a horse to jump, also I don't believe that a begginer rider should be jumping, as horses can be unpredictable, and in my experiance exspechilly on jumps.

    I LOVE jumping! Oxers are fun. But roll backs take so much concentration! But I love jumping XC!
