Hmm, I think I'll ask my trainer to go over the basics with us --
the idea of trying something brand new while out on the trail with
a horse that I am fairly certain has never jumped anything in his
life ... That and I'd like to stay on!!  Out of curiosity -- what
"gear" are you usually in when approaching a jump?  The only time
Dixie's jumped with me was straight up in the air when I was riding
side-saddle -- the lack of leg on right side was spooky, don't you

Thank You
Hope & Dixie (One leg, one side of me thank you very much!)
