I did a X-country event with my friends 14.2hh pony, and kia her 10yr old daughter on her juming pony, we entered the pairs 1st, we started off very fast kia's pony is very fast anyway, my pony was fast but not as fast, she was not build 4 speed (best her) but kia's pony was, they were jumping fantastic, fast but flowing, we headed 4 home for the 1st time, and my pony was very strong, but i could hold her just, we had 2 jump a fence together which we did great, 1st 1's to do it then as we went to turn away from home to the other jumps, i could not turn, at all my pony did not want to turn at all, she was going to join the other horses, i managed to turn her just but the ground was wet and she fell on me, all 4 legs just went from under her, both ok, that shock me up lots, my frind wanted me to do another round, but i said no, said i hurt to much, she knew i was to scared to, but she made me, i knew i had to but i was ****ting myself, if i had not then i would not off at all again.
So pleased i did, cos now i not as scare anymore and would love to do it lots more, cos i do enjoy X-C, but have not done much, i've just showjumped.
Why is it i'll jump any showjump put in front off me, and if i fall off get straight back on, but **** myself when it comes to X-C even though the jumps are smaller, in the classes i do???????? i know a few people the same and the other way round to, how about you any stories yet are you braver at 1 than the other?
Unfortunately, no matter how hard my current pony tries her heart out for me, she's just not able to make the distance and heights of BE:(
Hence why i'm looking for one to take me forward now :D
