yes all horses can jump;)
i think you will be saving it if you buy it on an auksjon, but then you don't know what you'll get..

boys are funny when they try to think!!

I would say they would be sturdy jumpers. But thats my opinion!

If you love something, set it free
If it comes back it's yours
If it doesn't, it never was

Everyone here is saying, 'go to the auction! Rescue the horseys!' But if you're green, you very well could end up with a huge headache--a lot of horses at auctions are drugged to look sound, and some have lameness issues/conditions that are ridiculously expensive, or you can't fix. There are plenty of people trying to get rid of good horses so they don't HAVE to take them to an auction--I'd try to buy one of those first, if you're looking for a good first horse.

Mustangs can jump

Yes a mustang can jump and when they are scared or spooked is better wording , they can jump like nothing else in this world, My old mare took me for a forest ride last week and i think she jumped every thing in the woods that was 6 inches or more off the ground dang i was sore when we got home. see she always wants to go in the woods when we ride , I try to keep her out of them due to the deer hunting in my area. But the other day i gave in and let her have her head , wow she jumped everything, really seemed to be haveing fun so i just laughed like a kid and went on with her, but was my old back sore when i got home , and she seemed really pleased with her self . if spooked they have a way of growing wings and flying over fences or corrals . wow what a rush for an old man to ride the wings of a mustang Dave

I have a 14.1 hh mustang that I used to jump 3', easy, with awesome form. I'm sure she could have gone higher, I just didn't want to. You won't find a horse with a bigger heart as long as you treat them right. My mustang came froma BLM Auction in Nevada. She has done everything from western pleasure, to jumper, to barrel racing and has excelled at it all. I have never had a better horse.

Buyer a horse from an auction is not cruel. If you are good a judging horses, you can get some nice ones from an auction. If you are not, take someone who is experienced with you. If you are talking about a BLM auction, don't worry about the horses left behind. They legally cannot be sold for slaughter.

Yes mustangs can jump.

Someone else said their height may be an issue, that is a generalization, and is somewhat incorrect. There are many ponies that can jump over 4' without a problem, and they're smaller than most Mustangs.

As other people have said height of a horse is not and issue. My pony has jumped 4'9" before.

Just thought I'd clarify.
