We all had to start somewhere and for most young riders, show jumping is the end goal.
To achieve that goal a good jumping pony is the second most important requirement after good riding and show jumping lessons.
Beyond that, courage and bravery are the next things on the list.
You have to be brave to ride a good brave jumping pony.
Our young rider show jumping photos feature youngsters that have most if not all of the above.
Some lack a little style and some a little control, but they’re all brave enough to have a go and loving every minute of it.
The more experienced, more mature equestrian will probably spot every jumping fault under the sun, but just watching these young riders should bring back fond memories of how we all started show jumping.
