My horse is having digestion problems at the moment and can't be ridden, I believe there are stomach ulcers. If someone gets on him he is in pain and backs up and has become extremely girthy (very out of character). He is getting scoped this afternoon.

I'm going to 3'3", because Jasper already did that with his previous owner, but I don't think I'll be able to go higher because of his age. At 13 I don't think I should introduce something crazy high, not that horses his age can't. (Last night I saw a 19 year old going over what I think was 5' 5".) Also, he has a little bit of arthritis in his back right hock, but it doesn't bother him now that he's on supplement.

i have evented up to training level & i definitely want to go higher ! my horse is over 20 & i had to stop eventing him a few yrs ago bc of a suspensory tear. since then ive been riding other horses [mostly young/ untrained ones] but i just bought a 3yo to train my self & i cant wait til shes old enough to some eventing. shes got nice legs for jumping so im hoping that she will eventually be able to do intermediate =]

I already posted here but, again, I either ride horses that are really well behaved but can't jump that high or horses that are pretty hard to ride and we want to take it slow with because, they can get out of control. :P

My thing is that i am beginning to do rails. I haver mastred my trot walk and canter 2 pont and sitting. Buit the thing that is holding me back is my reatarded circles. i can get the bends but when i do them somthihg also goes wron making my circle way to small and confusing my horse.Like really i love to jump but my trainer wants the little things perfect and I ride with a beginner for some reason!

a mix between only riding for a year, and a lazy pony.
i have jumped 2'6" but this was my first lesson with this trainer so it was kind of an evaluation :)

I am actually just moving up a level. I wasn't showing at all do to irrational fears but then a very helpful grey horse cane along and brought me from 12" crossrails to 2'3". He is no longer mine but I now have a horse who has shown 3' so I'm hoping (PLEASE!) to do my first, last, and only year of Children's Hunter at 2'6" this coming summer.
(and maybe Pleasure Horse too)

well i know it sounds typical to blame the horse- but Tangles has broken down as a jumper- at the age of 9- i bought him 2 years ago hoping to do state levels--- i got probabaly 5 good courses in and he went down hill very quickly--- bad joints and back- so i haven't jumped him for a year- he came good for a while and i started dressage- which he was training for gorgeously doing elem/medium in weeks! so basically i'm going to get him seen to by a chiropractor and massage therapist and continue dressage training and sell him as a dressage horse- apart from that i have a 3yr old i broke in myself (and i don't jump him more than 2'3" for his legs sake) and a 5 yr old OTTB who's just doing 2'9"- so basically my 4'+ jumper has gone a new direction and i have only babies-- thats my 'excuse' for not progressing hahaha :)
