It depends on you really, how you’re riding, your confidence and your equitation. As well as if your trainer sees you’re ready. Some people pick up certain things faster then others. So if you feel as if you’re ready to start jumping then ask your trainer if you could introduce trot poles and two point (jumping position) -this will strengthen and coordinate your leg and can be done in both the trot and canter. Dont rush into it, you wouldn’t want to pick up a bad habit or hurt yourself. Best of luck :)
