Question How is she for jumping?

I'm not asking anything big. We've only done about 3'
I was just wondering if her build makes jumping difficult?
She likes jumping, but if her build isn't so great than it could cause problems right?
The pictures are from when I was asking about a normal critique

I just looked at the other links.. and she is a bit over angulated behind and she will be hard to fit for saddle with the dip behind her withers and such large withers (hope you have that all taken care of since the other thread was in March).

She is a bit long coupled and her hind leg is a bit over angulated. She has enough open angle in front to get her knees up over fences but that hind leg may inhibit the take off.

Jumping requires a horse to be like an accordian. They must extend and collect in very few strides... as well as turn quick and be under themselves at the same time. I think that at the higher levels this horse will have issues. At lower levels (2' 6'' up to 3') this horse will be OK.

Yeah, we have two saddles that fit very nicely! Thanks!
We hardly ever jump over 2'6 that's pretty big for us two

I've noticed she really tucks with her front legs but her back legs kinda trot over the jumps

They don't have to be a certain build, fair enough if they are 'perfect' then it will be easier! I know a 13.3hh heavy weight cob that has jumped 1.43m! Good luck with jumping your pony!:) x
