Ask @jumpingfever:

Do you think it’s right when people say “you’re not a real rider unless you’ve fallen off”

I think that learning how to fall properly and land in a manner where you’re less likely to get hurt is an important part of riding as is getting back on after a fall but i wouldn’t say you aren’t a real rider if you haven’t fallen yet. It’s just statistically anyone who rides a large amount of horses or frequently will fall more often

Do you think it's best to wear a sports bra while riding? Or just a normal bra?

I always wear a sports bra but I guess it just depends on what you’re comfortable with. People with smaller boobs can probably wear normal bras and be more comfortable than people with larger bewbies

my horse grunts when i poke his nose if hes nervous, is that weird

Horses are individuals and don’t all do the same things. He’s probably just more sensitive to touch when already jacked up from nerves

what do you think of jill's riding in her latest vid

Her riding is always good. If her last video is the one of her riding a green bean 3y/o then you really shouldn’t be judging eq and whatnot off of that because riding babies means louder cues so they learn and it’s never as pretty as what it’d be in an eq class

I moved recently and im trying different barns. It is getting really frustrating and I miss my old horse so much. I just feel like Im always doing something wrong. I knocked down entire jump standards, can't find my next jump, it feels like it isn't me riding. Sometimes when I do something cont.

"Wrong I will get mad at myself and everything just starts to pile up and the next thing I know it I'm crying. I've never cried on a horse before and it feels like everything has gotten worse after I moved and left behind my heart horse. I feel like I should give up. What do I do?"
You've got to stop being so hard on yourself and remember that adjustment takes time. Getting used to a new horse can be tough enough on its own but add on new barn, new surroundings, new trainer, new people and it's quite a different and stressful experience that can change the way you ride. Ask your trainer what you can work and if you can, get someone to film your rides so you can watch them back and re-listen to your coach's advice and see it while you ride. This is super useful in visualizing how you can fix these things and then you can make a game plan before your next lesson on how you can start to get over any of the problems you've been running into
