I believe we should not generalize horses, because they are not general animals. Each horse and rider combination is different. Each rider should post based on their experience with showjumping. What size did they find best for their fence height? I've seen a Welsh pony jump 3' easy. With a rider. You see a lot of unusual things where I come from.

There is no such thing as natural horsemanship, because nothing we do with horses is natural. There is only good and bad horsemanship.
