The highest I've ever jumped is 5. I'm hesitant to go much higher because the idea of going over a jump that's as tall as me or level with my horse's back is a little terrifying. In his heyday my horse used to jump 5 ft fences but the most I've ever asked him to do is 2-2.6. We have done 3.6 but it was a downed tree and it was completely unexpected. He took it like a pro, I thought I was going to have a heart attack.

Show me a horseman who hasn't fallen and I'll show you a man who has never truly ridden.

I've been preparing my horse (on the ground) for jumping for the last month and a half and finally had our first jumping lesson last night. He had never jumped under saddle, and I hadn't jumped in 3 or 4 years, and only tiny jumps back then. Here's the combination we accomplished (under saddle!) by the end of the lesson:

I'm so ridiculously proud of him

I had someone bet me my dressage school master couldn't jump.

So I threw him over a couple of crosses, and then jumped a 3'6..1m10. He was rubbish at it, but he did it, and a course of it too. Poor fella! But, dressage horses can jump :P

Highest I have jumped is 6'3 on my old Dutch Warmblood. Sadly the photos were on my old laptop that got broken in a move and we couldn't retreive the pictures or anything else for that matter *sigh*

Highest I have competed is 4'6.

Highest I school and compete in the last couple of years is 3'6.

I believe the highest I have jumped is about 4ft although I have only ever shown up to 3'6.
