    I've been riding for 8 years (one or two lessons a week).. never owned/leased a horse. I school at about 2'3'' - 2'6'' but have recently jumped 2'9'' a couple times in my lessons but I can't really say I "school" over them since I've only done them once or twice. I show at about 2' - 2'3''.

    That's pretty quick to be jumping 3 feet...

    Riding for eleven years. School 3' to 4'5".

    Back to a greenie though, 2'6". It's not always the height that drives me. :)

    I have been riding for 14 years. I really only have been serious with hunters for 5ish years. I school about 3'9" at home and show at 3'6" on my gelding. I have jumped over 4ft but not seriously. I don't really fell the need to go much higher, as I'm not really interested in the jumpers stuff. I got my first horse about 9 years ago and did western for a little while. Then I started taking lessons with my current trainer and got my first hunter pony about 5 years ago and started showing all the little short stirrup classes. I have just been showing and taking lessons since.

    2 years and you're allready jumping 3 ft? That seems a little quick to me.
    Thanks for all the replys everyone!

    I've been jumping for 12 years. But I'm only 15. I started out on my little mini doing crossrails at home and shows. Now I'm schooling at 4' and competing at 3'6".

    I have been riding for 13 years. I have had my QH for a year and a half and we are jumping 4'2ish. He is a amazing little jumper. I learned time and paitence with him. He is very brave, and that's given me a lot of confindence.
