In jumping, you generally want a horse that is built up hill, in other words their withers should be the highest point on the back. They should have a short back, or a square back. Meaning that their back is as long as their legs or a little shorter then their legs. A horse with a straight shoulder is also a better option. And, if your doing jumpers or eventing you want a horse with a little bit of attitude, and if your doing hunters, get a horse that's a little more laid back. Hope this helps.
