I'm an amature show jumper located in western Canada, with the goal of going professional and competing internationally one day. I am in my last year of an MSc in Equine Science, with an interest in nutrition, exercise physiology, rehabilitation, behaviour and reproduction

How much do you spend on lessons? At my current barn, it’s $500+ for two lessons a week (45 mins) and I don’t know if that’s reasonable because it’s the only barn that I’ve rode at...
Group here is $30-$40 usually and private is roughly $50-$65. High level coaches are always a bit more than that though.
Are you riding with scoliosis or maybe even having metal pieces in your back? If so, have you had an accident yet and what was the outcome?
I have a friend who had back scoliosis and now has her back fused. She's competing in show jumping and hasn't had a bad fall yet, but idk if she has fallen off schooling or anything. If she has she's fine and she had that surgery about 4 or 5 years ago. I'd talk to your doctor about your risks and possible dangers if you have rods in your back. A riding impact vest is never a bad idea either
