What does this look like?

Today is my last lesson before our show. =) This is the first time jumping higher then 2 foot! =D I don't know why, but I think I found it easier to jump the higher jumps then the smaller ones. They weren't much higher, but they were higher. Here is a screen shot I have. How high do you think this is? :

Also, here's the video. I know not all of them are great, but I am still surprised of how well we did. I was finally getting used to the bigger jumps. At first, we started low (but you can't see them), but then my trainer just kept raising them. =0 =) I was so happy when we jumped them!

Sorry the picture got moved, but that's obviously the one I want you to see. Anyone have an eye for height? ;)

Looks like 5 foot standards... so i'd say approx 2'9".

Yes, they are 5 foot standards... just thought about adding that in! Thanks!

Why is it that 2' 9" looks so small on everything but the standards my barn has. They're like 7 feet but everything looks huge on them. Make sure you let us know how your show goes! Good luck!

Haha I don't think I have ever see standards that tall! =0 So cool! And thanks! I sure will!

Also, you can critic if you want to. =)

Are you sure that it would be 2'9"? The OP said it was her first time jumping over 2' so it would surprise me if her trainer would suddenly decide to raise the jumps 9", that's quite a bit higher.

It is a bit higher, but I don't think it's exactly 2'9". It's just en estimate I was looking for. If you watch the video my trainer is standing next to the standard and she is just a few inches taller then it so I am going to go up to one of my friends about the same height and measure up to their butt to get a better guess. =)
