If I could find a horse, who was a teacher, rather than a greenie, and a patient instructor I'd give it another shot.
Still going to find someone in Spring to jump Duffy for me though, reckon it would be a BAD idea for me to do it.
Duffy, from my experience the progress truly depends on instructor, not so much on horse. So if you find a good eventing or jumping instructor I'm positive you could do it.
My dressage trainer while she jumped too years ago told me on spot that she won't teach me jumping, because it's not her specialty. I'm taking lessons with the eventing instructor (who is very much like my dressage trainer in her teaching and approach, so it works for me).
