I have been ridden for two years in january ! My first word was probably horse .... i have always had a crazy love for horses... and then when i was 11 i got my first horse, Cricket and she and I have come sooo far and we have made an amazing bond =] And let me tell you ... a lot has happend in 2 yrs ! it has been an amazing and crazy and fun two yrs of riding. For a year when we got her I only rode her a couple of times .. but we really didnt have anywhere to ride but in January of 2007 we moved her to a place that i could ride all year long! and now were up to 3 horses ! but cricket is still the one i ride all of the time =] And as for jumping ... she lovesss to jump! and we have jumped 2'6" and i love to jump also ! ! ! I hope in the future we get a little bit higher !

im 17 and ive ben riding for about 6 and a half years. right now im training my own horse so were only jumping around 2'6 but i think by next summer well be jumping hopefully around 3'. on my other horse i jumped 3'9, that was really fun. id like to be able to go really far with the horse i have now, and i think hes going to do really good.

My horse's feet are as swift as rolling thunder, He carries me away from all my fears, And when the world threatens to fall asunder, His mane is there to wipe away my tears.

I have been riding for say 4 years and I'm pretty advanced. (I spend like 24/7 riding!). I can jump 4ft but don't do it very often. I usually jump 3ft or 3 1/2. The highest I have jumped was 4 1/2. So just keep trying and you'll get really good!

Been riding for 16 years, but only made the 4' mark... have never had a horse that's been able to go higher. I always get stuck with the young greenies then sell/pass them on.

I don't jump anymore. I actually started off as jumper and my present horse would rather jump than do dressage. When I was jumping I was doing stake classes that varied from 3'6" to 4'.

I did a 5' jump once on a dare and decided jumping is not my thing.

I've been riding for about 2 and a half years, shown up to 3', and schooled up to 4'. I actually only started cantering jumps in May, but my horse and I click really well so we just do our thing to make each other happy. I love my teammate. ;)

I show anywhere between 3'6"-4' and I school at home anywhere between 3'-4'6" and I just turned 16 and have been riding for 8years. I have also owned a variety of horses and ponies and have a 15.2stout appy gelding who I show competitively on and a 13.3welsh cross pony who is for sale (she is a project pony)

It is not just a horse,
It is the one thing that keeps me from being just a girl
