If you really are into jumping why not buy a horse that you know will jump?
Well... I'm not a show jumper, I don't even have an English saddle, but I do have a bareback pad that has English stirrups, so I just do little home made jumps. The lady I'm getting the horse from says he loves to jump, but I don't know if it would be to dangerous or not. P.S I am saving up money to buy English tack.
