lol, you're braver than me! My horse has jumped 4' competitively, highest I've done is 3'6" and that was one vertical. I think I could work my way up to 4' if I was riding with someone else who jumped that high though... I have this thing where I like to one-up whoever I'm riding with, so if we put the jumps up to warmup height, then raise them to work height, and then put them up one hole at a time, we could end up going crazy high.

But never on my own, and never when I only have to jump 3'4" to one-up the person I'm riding with (that's the only other person within riding distance who jumps!)...

Haha well you should try it sometime! It's sort of a rush the first few times, and then you get tired of that and want to go higher! LOL But of course don't rush you or the horse.

lol, that's what I'm doing :) at the moment I'm working my way up to 3'4" square oxers, got to 3'2" and then horse went lame but he's come good so I'll bring him back into work, get him and me consistent over 3'4" oxers, and then start working the height up. Need to measure the vertical, and then put it up one hole...
