Smile Haflinger's jumping capabilities

So I am hoping to full lease a horse, and recently found a nice little haflinger mare on Craigslist available to full lease. She is a cute little jumper, and I love that cute haffie face!
I was wondering how high you guys have seen haflingers capable of jumping. She is also the light-built haffie type, unlike the stocky ones also seen a lot.

I understand that this varies between horses, and of course that it is not the sole purpose of a jumping horse, but I am asking this to make sure the stuff I want to do in my future won't be too challenging for her. (Pony club, pony hunters and show jumping.

Summary: how high have you seen/can a haflinger jump?

Thank you ahead of time for any input, all replies are sincerly appreciated!
P.S. Please excuse any spelling/grammar errors, I am posting this from my phone which wants to "correct" everything.

I've seen a drafty one free jump 4' , and 3' (he topped out about there) with a rider. Mind you he was only 13.2hh himself

Love that link!

Here is another pic I love:

When I had my 13.3 hand haflinger he hopped over a fence just shy of 5 feet and somewhere I have a pic of him as a yearling taking on a small jump but way over taking it like it was a 4 foot jump. Never found out what he could do with a rider because well...I'm just not that brave.

Love that link Clava! I'm going to share with a student that has 2 Haffies. She shows her mare at 2'6"-2'9" and schools 3' at home, she only jumps in her 4-H club and a few open shows a year hosted by other 4-H clubs and max for ponies is 2'9" by 4-H rules.

I've seen them jump some pretty sizable courses, it's been many years and don't know exact heights though. We were in MI for another show years ago and they were having a big Haflinger show at the fairgrounds in Berrien Springs, haven't ever seen that many Haffies in one place. It was fun to watch. Honest, willing little jumpers, that's for sure!

I schooled this lovely little 14.1 Haflinger up to 2'6" when I was working with her. Loved it and had room to spare. She was a little tank, too.

The British Haflinger Society has a huge show each year, but I've never been - it is on my to do list

My trainer keeps a haflinger stallion that has jumped a 4' fence into a pasture (thankfully empty), and he is a huge jumper under saddle. I don't have measurements, but he looks to be 13.2 or .3.
