Hi Lindey,
I have been riding horses for fun since I was about 8 years old. It wasn't until about 3-4 years ago I decided to jump competitively. When I made the decision I told my parents this is what I wanted to do and we found the best possible trainer and went from there. I didn't have very many horses at the beginning. I only had 2 1.30m horses! It takes a lot of work every day but is definitely worth it! I would say the main thing is to have a great relationship with your trainer and horses. Little things like working on canter poles or bounces wil help as well. I just rode and showed as much as I possibly could!

Hope this helped!
Emily
