To the OP, in your other threads you say you are looking for a rescue horse. Unless you are willing to look long and hard (but you also say that you *need* a horse, and soon!) you are not going to find a well trained jumper in a rescue situation. It is very easy to sour a horse to jumping or even injure them if you're not training properly. A trainer can help you avoid disaster.
You may have experience jumping (and I agree that three years is not really that much experience, but at 13 I'm sure it seems like a lot) but you do not have experience training. No worries, this will come with time. In the meantime, please get a trainer who can help you and your new buddy, when you get him, make sure that you will have a long and happy partnership. If you do get a rescue, you should be ready to work through a lot of tough times together, the least of which will be figuring out your jumps! Best of luck, I know how much you want a horse, so I know you'll make the right decisions with him and take really good care of him!
