    The highest I've ever jumped was 3ft, It WAS by accident. No one told me that the horse I was using for my lesson tries to jump everything and anything if he can, someone left it set up and I was attempting to go around it but he overpowerd me and jumped it... needless to say I was on his neck. I learned my lesson the hard way to always take down the jumps.

    2'9" is the highest I've gone, but I feel safest around 2'0" - 2'6". Without a coach, I'm terrified of hurting my horse, so I keep it to heights she can pack me out of if I screw up the approach.

    That, and 2'9" looks like a grand prix oxer on my 14.3hh Arab mare She's free jumped almost 4'0" before though.

    Me and Chance jump 2'9-3' last summer, but considering she's 5 we have been laying off the jumping.

    Highest I've gone is like 2'3 or 2'6 not sure, the standards aren't marked at the barn I take lessons at. My position isn't very good yet though. But I think it's ok considering I've only been riding for 8 months :)

    I'm happy to about 1.2m, I could go higher if I had the right horse.

    I'v free schooled a few to 1.4m but don't really see any point getting higher than that in a schooling environment.

    3'9" is my highest yet, but I'm only doing like 3'3" courses, need some work over those and solidifying my form before we move up.

    My pony however is amazing and has free jumped 4'9" and that was as high as the standards went. He's 14 hands :)

    4'3" , he wasn't in the best shape here. Too bad we didn't have those standards when we free jumped him again, they were 6ft :[

    He trotted this fence :P Think he's clearing it enough?

    I've jumped 3ft on a school horse once

    I compete my girl at the moment to 3ft but am wanting to mover her up to 3ft 3 so I can try and qualify for Showhunter at Hoy... In lessons we jump up to 3ft3

    When I was younger and braver I had jump my pony up to 4ft 2 and I used to compete my hack in RTR up to 3ft9 (I had a 10 year break form riding so am only just getting up the heights again)
