My trainer said that too! We are going to start teaching my horse to jump and I don't think I will ever school jumping more than once a week, probably less most of the time. He's a big beefy quarter horse and not necessarily built for jumping and I really want to be careful to not damage his joints. Better safe than sorry when it's your baby, imo!
I probably wouldn't count a jump or two on the trail or hacking around but for any sort of schooling and repetitive jumping no more than once a week, maybe twice if my horse had a jumper's build.
