Just think if your confident your horse will jump if your not he won’t but that’s not the end of the world!👍😊
You should ride a more experienced horse to give you some confidence, jump small verticals or cross poles to build your confidence up
Start of by doing poles then cavaletie then normal
@bridgetconnors thank you I'll try that 💕🐴
@georgiabuchen thanks 😘🐴
Start small and practice going around courses :)
Just be yourself and pretend your practicing just like any day. That's what I do.
Sometimes riding a different horse once over a few jumps will also help :)
Start doing a little bit at home, and little by little start going a little faster and raising the jumps. If your going to show I would say show in hunter or EQ first then do something like beginner jumpers.
