ALWAYS * ALWAYS * ALWAYS check your tack B/4 Jumping. Make sure girth billets & stirrup leathers are strong, and without cracks, breaks or any signs of weakness~! Use safety stirrups, and check the rubber bands if the type that uses them. Make sure girth is tight!!! Irons should have 1/4" clearance on BOTH sides. ALWAYS wear boots with a short heel and ALWAYS * ALWAYS * ALWAYS wear an ASTM Approved Safety Helmet. Don't be afraid to use a neck strap if you have any uncertainty.
