That was me lala - Gem had never really jumped before I owned her (they'd tried just after breaking her in, but she was a cow so they gave in!) I have jumped 'bigger and better' than this that I do with her, I have my stage 2, but at the present moment in time, history is what was, and you have to work with what you have at this precise moment.

If it's any consolation, or help, this is us about 11 months later

(We just so happened to have a problem with that fence, not that you'd notice, photographer caught us before I hit the deck!)

Things happen, you start small and build up. That jump was ironically around my comfort zone, slightly out of it, not cos of the height but the width scared me (not sure why, I've jumped wider on Gem!). Take it one step at a time and you'll soon be flying.
