How high could she go?

Okay soooo Im pretty sure you all know my mare Love Story by now, lol. But I was just wondering how high you guys think she will be able to jump, our instructer says she could get up to a metre 50, but what do you all think?

This is us jumping. The smallest jump is 50cm, and the highest 1m:

Every girl wants their own LOVE STORY, I found mine... :)

To be honest that second pic scares me a little. She's got loose dangling legs in this picture. But from the other pics it looks like she may of just gotten in too deep to this jump.

Not knowing the horse personally and being able to work with it, I can't tell you over the internet. Just build her up slowly and see how high she can comfortably go.

1m looks a bit high for her, but if you start low and slowly introduce higher jumps than she might be able to go higher, just don't rush her! :)

I very much agree with Marrissa. I believe I have said this on another thread.

I really wouldn't take her much higher than a meter until she tightens up her form. She would really benefit from gymnastic lines. My 17 yr old mare used to jump like that too until I really worked on gymnastics. She can get better! She's a cute mare though
