I don't have any pics, but I got my trainers 12.2hh pony to jump 3ft! Soo proud of him! (:

I'm a cowgirl. I break horses, I wear jeans and boots and I play in the mud. (:

I have some pictures of my previous pony. Unfortunately he is sold to America and I have no idea where he is now (I live in Holland). But I've got some lovely pictures of him!
His name is Benji van D'Hoeve.

Enjoy:

Not really true, the entire reason they can jump so high is because they ARE ponies. Much like the ant being the strongest creature in the world relative to his size, ponies in general are MUCH better jumpers then horses due to their conformation. If you made them into bigger horses, they'd lose much of that natural ability. Connemara's are well known to routinely clear 7'0" and higher fences while often only being 13 or 14hh!

My little 14.3hh Arab loves to jump, she's cleared 4'6" free jumping (standards wouldn't go any higher) and easily does 3'0" under saddle and I weigh 200 pounds! It's a shame she grew that extra inch, she would have made a phenomenal pony jumper!


And jumping a 2'9" oxer last summer with plenty of room to spare!:
