Because I'm incapable of making safe choices, I the nervous rider have decided to learn how to jump. (Technically, I've already jumped, but those were 2 cm. Crossrails on my Welsh when I was 10.) Maybe I'm wrong, but Haflingers seem like unlikely candidates for jumping, much less jumping with me. I expect I won't be able to jump more than two or maybe three feet. So, could a Haflinger jump that high?
Also, I'm tall-or-maybe-short. I'm about 5'1, and I've been told that I'm tall and that I'm short. But in any case, I have pretty long legs and I only need to go a couple holes shorter than my mom's stirrup length. Would I outgrow a Haflinger, or would it work out fine?
My questions, in a nutshell: What are some quiet, calm stallion lines? How high can Haflingers jump? What size riders can Haflingers carry?
