    The highest single fence I've jumped is 3'6". On my own horse, which makes it a little exciting. :)

    I was schooling a green pony and he decided that it would be fun to take the edge of a 4ft cross rail xD

    I remember when my friend told me of the first time she ever jumped a horse(love this story!)

    She was 7 years old and had NEVER ridden a horse before. She got a lesson in Italy and rode this huge horse. She didn't even wear a helmet! The instructor got her doing all this stuff and finally said that she should jump something. He set her up with a crossrail and kept building it higher and higher until it was four feet!!! She jumped it and almost fell off(no helmet), but she stayed on. I would have loved to do that my first lesson.....................

    Mine was about 4' something not quite sure but it was an accident. There were some bigger jumps set up in the middle of the ring and my trainer told me to circkle and go over a different fence which was about 3'3 and I circled to tight and by the time I looked up we were trotting up to this huge fence and my horse doesnt stop so I just thought o well here we go and up over the fence we go. When we landed I was laying on Petey's neck and then he threw me back up in the saddle. That's when my trainer looked at me and said, you can have him! Lol she said he's never saved anybody over a jump and boy is he a powerhouse. He was a Advanced eventer and jumped like a rocket and I totally wasnt ready for how big he was going to jump that fence. He jumped it like it was 6'. Crazy horse. But I love him to death. That was like 4yrs ago or something.
