Jump doesn't only mean like high jumping and all the time :')
I'm not saying your info is irrelevant or it's not easy to hear.. I don't mind to hear advice or critics. That doesn't bother me, it's only for my best. Be my guest.
But what bothers me is that you're making conclusions that I should get a jumper, or that I should do something else what she does like. Without knowing enough background information to make those conclusions apperently. (What you also could have asked.. are you planning on a jumping career? Is jumping the only thing you want to do with her?)

Really, your advice is not the problem at all if it was right for my situation. I would thank you and take your advice.
You could have suggested 'maybe you can do something else she likes. Because if she doesn't like it she might get bad behaved in time'
Or 'maybe your horse doesn't like (have the desire to..) jumping, in that case it's best that you...
Sounds a lot nicer to me. And i could have answered that it's not the problem that she doesn't like it.

Sorry! Bad english.. feel free to correct me (:

She's a lovely horse! She only just started jumping and already has decent form. My horse jumps with both front legs flailing out lol. Enjoy, she seems willing to please you!

I'm glad to see the free jumping worked out! She didn't trip or anything?

The path is different for you and me, but the journey begins in the heart.
