I personally think she's way to young to be jumping that height.

I don't think such a young one should be jumped. There are plenty of other things to do on ground.

I will just repeat what everyone has and will continue to say. She is way too young to be jumping, let alone at that height.

The most anyone should be considering doing with her involving poles is leading her over them at a walk and trot.

Considering the OP says "2yo mare" I think its a safe assumption to make.

Alright even though it's true it's a bit early for her to be jumping, I still think she looks like she has great potential, already naturally scopey and good with her shoulders/legs. But no hurry with a horse like this, it would be a waste to burn her out soon.


Have fun with her and keep us posted!

By jumping her this young you are risking her growth plates, I highly suggest you wait until she's 4 to jump, especially something that high.

She looks like she had a good lesson already that day under saddle too. Hmm... what's the rush?

-northernmama I noticed that too, is she under saddle alrealy vaslali??

I agree with everyone else, she looks like she has great chance of being a great jumper but don’t push her at this age, I believe she will be much better in the long run with ground work & trotting pole work. She looks like a lovely horse good luck with making the right choice & good luck with her in general J
