Jumping over 3ft

I'm starting English lessons again after a few years Western (did English 2 years before) and the highest I jumped in English a while ago was probably 2 foot at most. I'm getting back into jumping, and, yes, I know it will take me a while to get to 3 ft. I do not have my own horse; do you have to have your own horse to jump +3 ft in lessons/shows? Just curious about this; I don't see myself getting a horse anytime soon, but I do enjoy jumping and I would like to go bigger than I was before. Thanks!

No, you don't need to own your own horse to jump that high in lessons or shows. You just need to have a lesson horse or lease horse that is capable of that height.

It depends on the barn you're riding at. When I was taking lessons on school horses we didn't jump more than 2'3 unless we were leasing (and thus had to purchase our own insurance, it's a big thing in my province) or owned our own horse. That said, I can 100% understand that, and I would not expect a school string to have lesson horses jumping 3 ft with lesson kids just because it's quite strenuous on their joints, and if you have multiple people jumping on multiple days... well, there you go.

So I know a lot of the schools where I am don't do it unless you lease / own, but who knows, when you get there maybe you'll be able to find a lease! From 2ft to 3ft is HUGE leap, so think small goals for now

Thank you! That does make sense...hopefully when I get up to higher jumps I can half lease!
