Ah yes.....I know those moments..
Don't worry, I'm sure you'll be fine! It wasn't scary at all, I was more just annoyed!Eek! I have my first jumping lesson since forever next week, and I'm terrified now. How the $^#$ did your horses get over those jumps? That must've been scary.
Meh, no worries! It was entirely rider error.Eek! I have my first jumping lesson since forever next week, and I'm terrified now. How the $^#$ did your horses get over those jumps? That must've been scary.
LOL - at least you guys have nice ponies who will jump for you!I dropped my shoulders and gave him the signal "ok now"
I'm more annoyed at myself for permitting it to happen, instead of staying tall, solid and supportive to the fence, I stopped riding and he said "ok Mom".
It is a learning lesson for the rider, that's for sure!
hah!lol, trust me Junior - Nelson doesn't always take the jump. Majority of the time, he'll stop dead in his tracks, causing me to continue on riding the fence without him.
We need to thank our lucky stars for horses to refuse to take the jump when we error in this way, because they teach us, they teach us to face the facts of what we as the riders are doing incorreclty, and teach us to correct them, so that we can be more cometant and solid riders - for our horses.
