You know what? Some people prefer smaller jumps and don't want to go higher. And there is NOTHING wrong with that. But don't give up just because you're frightened. Try three inches higher than your current comfort zone. If it's okay, then keep trying it. But if at some point you're not enjoying yourself, don't do it. It's okay.

I had a lot of bad jumping falls, and that is why I switched to dressage. Jumping was just too scary for me at a point, but after a year or two of "recovery" I decided that I wanted to canter over poles again. From there is moved up to an occasional cross rail. I started leasing a trusty horse, and I started jumping on her because some days I didn't have the patience to do dressage. For me, going higher is something I have to do because I want to compete beginner novice next year. Bt to get to that scary 2'7, I will raise the jump. Not the trainer raise the jump. I now have no problems cantering any horse over a cross rail course, but I do have issues when that cross rail turns into 2'. I just need a trusty stead to make me feel like I can do it!
