I don't know exactly, but the top bar is 3ft ... so maybe 2ft 8?

its good. just watch out when you land that your not resting your hands on his neck, and get a more forward canter. other than that it was good! nice position

I don't really lean on his neck, though it does look like it ... I just keep my hands really close.

Sometimes he can be a bit hesitant when cantering to the jump so i'll try to get him going forward more, but sometimes he has hyper days and just launches himself at it, lol.

You guys make it look easy. It does seem you are a little ahead of him over a couple, but overall I think you look great. Post another movie when you start moving up in height, I'd love to see how he handles it:)

We jumped 3ft 2! I'm so chuffed with him! It's not that big to some of you, I know but it was amazing! You feel yourself in the air for so much longer.

:P :P .

that must be so much fun. it's a good thing that you moved up in height because it looked like your horse could go a lot bigger. and be careful that your elbows don't stick out like a duck, not that you're like that or anything, but be careful it never happens
