I agree.
The last jump was too high, the little guy was having problems clearing it all the time.

I know that the fun of jumping for some people is to see how high you can go, but this appears to border on being unsafe. Let the little guy show his awesome skills at a height that is comfortable for him to shine in. There's a reason most people "grow" out of ponies in the hunter world; a lot of times it's simply because they want to jump bigger and it's not safe for the little guys to do that.

Please don't think I'm being mean, but that's a talented little guy who could have a lot of jumping years left if he's not leaped into the ground.
Yeah, I totally understand what your saying. And actually that is a height that he's comfortable in (2'9"-3ft) because that's what he used to showing in (: But he knocked those because he was getting tired, then we stopped. Some of the higher ones and the spreads were just to see if he could do it, its not like were constantly asking him to do something that he can't do it was a "oh lets see if he can do this, ok he cant"

The spread was just a little too wide (:
