Oh very true, little horses are sometimes the best jumpers. My mare was 13.2 and could out jump most 16hh + horses. I also rode a mstang mare who was about 14.2 and she could easily clear 4' and higher.

What about Teddy O'Connor? 14.1 and competed in the highest level of eventing.

'Nuff said.

I am in complete agreement with Allison. There's nothing screaming maxed out to me in those videos. Ponies can be a lot more than people tend to think. My favorite pony in the world (who I very, very much wish I had the opportunity to buy... too expensive though) is only 14.2 (MAYBE 14.3) and I've easily cleared 4' with him. It's all in their heart.

Thanks :) I just didn't want to puch her farther than she could go. She definitely has heart and drive and loves jumping.

Lovely horse, I see no reason she couldn't jump beyond 3'.

Good luck with her!

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.
