When I bought my gelding (16 hh Appy, don't know if the breed makes any difference but whatever) he was 5 years old and jumping up to 3'9... I have no idea how long he was jumping beforehand but what do you guys think, was he started on it too young? Jumping to high too young? All I know is that I, personally, wouldn't start a horse until they were in their older 3's or even 4 years old and if he was doing so much at 5... I have to wonder!
What do you guys think?
