Want to get into show jumping
Ive been convinced for a while by friends and my girlfriend to do show jumping... I love the looks of it and everything! How can I start, the barn I do lessons at does teach show jumping and Ill talk to my insructor about it ... I just got 1 issue, I dont own a horse and cant lease one cause I dont have the money to... But other than that how can I start?

Take lessons with your instructor and ride her show jumping horses in the lessons, assuming that comes with the lesson fees and you/your parents can afford the lesson fee or you work off the lesson fee. Ask her about showing them and if you could work off the amount it would cost to take them to a show and show them. You are going to have to save up money for entry fees and all that stuff though. You can also work off a ride on one of her horses, so in addition to a weekly lesson, you could also come out and practice on one of her horses so you are riding twice a week.
