The jump is really quite small, and most horses would be able to canter over it like she demonstrated.
A better test would be to put her through a proper jumping chute, or get the help of a trainer to assess her in person.
I agree, I'm looking at the horses forwardness to the jump and how well she clears it. Obviously she needs work. But I am loving the forwardness and how smooth her jump is. With a rider like myself that knows how to jump I think she'd do well. My current horse refuses right at the last second or steps over it so what Libby has is a major plus for me. This is the only horse I have found in my area that will even consider a jump.
