jumping high!!!

I switched from western to english over the summer and I'm now jumping my bay Turner at about 2 feet.My trainer thinks I'm ready for larger jumps especially because of my horse and his ability. What hights do you jump at and how much of a difference does the height make.Any advice on big jumps i'm willing to take!!! Thanks :o

Hmm..on my horse, I don't jump, but at my riding lessons I jump about 90cm.

If your horse is ready for it, and your trainer thinks your ready for it, give it a go!!! Height to me, only really makes a difference, because it is a taller jump for your horse, but, if you and your horse are ready for it, it really shouldn't be a problem.

Good luck with it! And keep us updated on how it goes!

Hi D-izzle,
I think if your trainer sais your ready then you must be !
Sounds like your making good progress, but I think you have to be confident to get the best out of large fences, when you say large fences how big is your trainer thinking??

I think youll be fine you just have to remember to be confident, and remeber that your confident will grow, as you improve over the fences. I agree with sparky about the height! Youll be fine keep us posted !!!

I have jumped 4ft on a friends horse, but I only jump up to 2"6 on my pony. When jumping bigger it's the same principal as jumping small. Don't over jump your pony over big jumps though.. this won't give him/her any confidence.

I love jumping I find it amazing.
I jump 4'3" on my horse, and I love it.
If your trainer thinks you should go higher you should go for it, s/he wouldn't ask you to do it if s/he didn't think you were capable. I think that you should go for it, the higher the jump the more rewarding it is, but don't push yourself. Take your trainers advise, you'll love it.

I only jump about 80 cm basically because for me height dosn't make a diffrence because I only jump for the fun of it or for a training excersise.

But if you have fun doing it and your horse is capable then go for it and have fun :)
