Is he trained in jumping already? If not pass you need something you can learn on not learn with it won't do either of you any favors when neither know what is right or wrong and how to feel for it or see it

Yes he is jumping 2 feet twice a week! Do you think that will be good enough for me to start learning on?

He's over at the knee, also tied in and sickle hocked.

I wouldn't buy him for jumping.

No I would recommend something that's been around the block. That's just me though I'm not saying go out and buy the most expensive eventer but start out with a beginner safe jumper that will help you and so you can at least learn and once you get farther along then find something that can go farther or is lightly started jumping as this guy seems to be.

I say keep looking do not rush into buying a horse that does not fit your needs. From personal experience it is not worth it.
