I remember a few weeks ago, before the freezing spell, there were some plastic jump containers set up in an A-shape in the big arena. On the ground they looked tiny so I thought it would be no problem getting Max over them. However as soon as I hopped on Max , the jump looked huge...
I decided to go for it anyway...went over twice, came out of my tack twice. I would get nervous before the jump, slow Max down and he would have no choice but to pop up and over.
After the second time I told myself..nah..these are still too high for me..although obviously Max can handle it. I basically convinced myself I wasn't ready going that 'high' and that I needed more confidence before trying them again.
Today I was looking through some old pictures and came across these...(Please ignore the terrible rider position)
I CAN DO IT DAMMIT!
New year's resolution - get out of my chicken suit and go out there and have some fun over jumps with my jump-loving pony!
