Your leg makes me insanely jealous, Allison. I've been working on my legs for years and it hasn't been until recently (after a solid 6 months of almost entirely dressage work) that I don't feel like my legs are flying behind me in the wind (that might be a slight exaggeration).... but even so, they certainly don't look like yours!

The highest I've ever jumped was about 4'3" (topped out our standards), but I was young and stupid and should not have been jumping that high. I was lucky enough to be riding and old point and shoot schoolmaster and a few of us decided to play 'Chase Me Charlie'. Needless to say we got a talking to once our trainer found out ;]

The highest I've actually trained at is 3'6", and recently no higher than 2'6", as I fell in love with an older quarter horse with no previous english training and way too much spunk. Also, until last week, I had no arena or jumps to use.

Highest I've jumped is about 4'3" on a 14.1hh mare, it was awesome! I have no desire to go any higher lol.

'Course I have some heavy boned girls, so I probably won't be going any higher than 2'3" 2'6" :)

The highest I've ever jumped was about 4'6" and it was over an industrial trash can. The highest I've ever jumped while on the back of a horse was about 3'. The highest number of jump standards I have taken out (not my horse, but me, flying through the air ) during one jumping lesson was eight. I really like dressage.

Love this thread. I've jumped about 3' but have more regularly been near 2'. Allison- I've always been jealous of your consistently near perfect jumping form!

Allison, hi. Was reading this thread and looked to see what part of the country you're in and we're not too far apart. I'm in Selma. Do you still show? I saw some grand prix jumping advertised at the horse complex in Raleigh not long ago, would've liked to go but wasn't able to make it that weekend. I don't jump but love watching show jumping and cross country. I'm just truly in awe of the riders and horses that can compete at those levels. I grew up in Wilmington NC and all I saw there was hunt seat, not knocking it but after seeing my first Olympic trials in Southern Pines I just couldnt sit and watch hunt seat shows like before :) 7ft is awesome!

Three foot. My horse, Rusty, and I both learned the ropes of jumping together, and it was terrifying when my trainer upped the ante! Rusty took it like a pro as usual, though, and we made it through a course. :) I miss that horse...

4'. My cousin and I were 13, riding 17hh half broke draft crosses with no stirrups, because we were around 4' tall and her brothers(owned the saddles) were over 6', the stirrups wouldnt go short enough. We were deep in the bush on a peice of land hours from town when a bull moose came up behind us. The narrow trail we were on was surrounded by thick bush, so when we came across a downed tree across the trail we had no choice but to jump it.

I don't immagine it was pretty, but we lived
