While I would still talk to your vet more about the subject, I would also keep in mind that not all vets (even equine vets) are familiar with all of the different equine sports in depth. Her experience may be that the ponies that she has worked with in the past ended up lame from jumping and the height truly was too much for those ponies.
My vet has jumped for a long time, but she specializes in Saddlebreds. I think she's also worked with a lot of qh hunters who go lame after too much jumping. (the ones with the big bulky bodies and the itty bitty legs)
I'll ask around. I wanted to do 3' and possibly 3'3".. would 3'3" be pushing it? She has no prob over 2'6"-3'; she doesnt even bat an eye.
Thanks for the support! I'm going to try and get as many opinions as possible.. I really wanna do the 3' stuff but not if it'll hurt my pony. :)
