How high is this jump?

All I have is this little video screenshot, but this was the highest jump we did in my last lesson! It seemed really high at the time, and I was kinda nervous, but we got over it. XD How high do you think it is... 2'3''? 2'6'' maybe?

I am horrible at fence heights. I'd say around 2'9" - but I am just guessing.

It's almost impossible to judge accurately by this picture but my first guess is about 2"6. Also, most standards start off their first hole at 18 in and go up in 3 inch increments. Looks like (but again, hard to tell) like it's about 4 holes up from the lowest, which would make it 2"6.

Maybe around 2'6?

Lol yeah I was thinking it started at 18'' so that would be 2'6'' I think
My friend didn't get any video of me going over it, just happened to swing the camera by it. Lol

Ahhh, upnover beat me to it! I was going to say that standards usually atart at 18" and go up by 3". So 2'6"

2'6, possibly 2'9. But you already got your answer anyways, haha.

^ Always looks bigger from the back of a horse.

I agree with all the others, 2'6" was my first guess.
