I Jumped
Yay I jumped on a pony!!!! Very big deal for me. I got 3rd in the 2foot class and 6th in the 2foot6. The jump off for the 2foot6 was VERY SCARY. :shock: I have a video of it here, i dont think you have to log into facebook to see it. (helpfull critisism would be great, but please be nice, it is the first time I've jumped in 2 years really). http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=49428163383&subj=722215095

Beautifully turned out, persil white pony!! I thought your video was very good - in a nice rhythm, and very calm! You got a little left behind at times but you didn't catch the pony in the mouth and all in all a very good effort! Well done. :mrgreen:

Lovely, quiet round, very nice, especially if you haven't jumped in a while. You should be really proud of yourself and your pony!

Re: I Jumped

Thanks very much guys, that means a lot comming from you. To be honest I was shaking before I went in and I was sick after, very very scary. The pony (which I bathed in the winter, poor baby) is on the college riding school. She is one of the only little ones there, I like that though. She has a really bad rep for refusing and running out but if she had wanted to do either with me she could have done easily. I was just pointing a praying, she carried me round good as gold.

To be honest the biggest confidence boost was when I fell off (having already gone through the finish :hammer stupid child. I got off balance over the final double and tried to keep her straight after it to get back in the middle, but as there was a wall in the way she turned and I plopped off the side. It was like 'oh, that wasn't so bad now was it' and I just thought sod it, lets go.
