My first horse was an old hunter/jumper champ, retired from lessons when he got sour and cranky with kids riding him all the time, so when I got him he was pretty surly. Anyway, he was basically my trail horse, and after a bad storm a series of logs were across the trail, and he jumped them, there was no stopping him! All in a western saddle with me as a pretty green rider still, but I stayed on just fine. I hear he's a wonderful jumper, but I wouldn't know anything about form. That was probably 3.5 feet.
The other was on my qh/mustang cross, and it was more of a drop than a jump, but he bolted up the wheelchair ramp we used to help disabled people onto the horses, about 6 feet tall, and leapt off! I was lucky he didn't break a leg or kill us both, nope, he hits the ground and kept galloping. So he probably cleared a good 7 feet, haha.
