Well, the unpainted standards look like four foot standards and the White are five foot at the most (Look at them compared to the rider....How tall is she?). Seems like both measurements may be a bit off.

I am not saying you are purposely misleading, only that the markings may have been made incorrectly.

I'm pretty sure the unpainted ones are 4ft and the white ones are 5ft, and when we had the jump at 3'9" it was almost at the tippy top, and 3'6" was just below. I'm I'm 5'7" and Jordyn is like 5'5" or 5'6"

And there are lots of us that don't understand why people insist on turning a horse with such a roached back into a jumper of all things, especially if he has to spend hours being jumped again and again by 3 different people. OK I don't know if he is ridden for hours, but when those videos were posted that was my first thought

Cowboy looks to me that he is often uncomfortable or in pain, and it just saddens me to see him being used like this.

Here is another one for anyone who cares to see for themselves:



Again, compare the jump to the horse, rider, and person at the jump. Either y'all are darn tall, or that is not a 3'6" jump.

If the unpainted ones are 4' (believable), then the jump is probably 2'6".

I trust my vet that gave cowboy an exam. She wouldn't have said go ahead and jump, go cross country, etc if he was in any pain. He was a little sore in his left hip to compinsate for his roach, but she said a week or two of no jump and strictly trotting would help. I did the pen test on him myself and he was in no more pain. We don't jump him hard and long, only at the end of our rides. Those videos are about 6 days worth of videos. And to bsms the girl standing on the jump is short, and is on a 2'6" jump. And I think that was a 3'3" video frame. But the one of me jumping is definitely 3'6"

Why would we make a big deal out of a 2'6" jump........? We jump that on a regular basis, on any horse.

..... Cowboy is not ridden for hours, probably 3 hours a week. He is not a jumper of all things, and normally never gets jumped higher then 2'9. That jump was definentally not 2'6. The white jump was set at 2'6. The girl was standing on a 2'6 jump. The jump cowboy was jumping was NOT 2'6.
