Ollie, I don't mean to rain on your parade, but how long did you say you have been jumping? A good trainer will not increase the height until their students have mastered lower fences with a solid, steady position. I would not be comfortable with any instructor having a student jump 3' after just a few jumping lessons.

I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted.

I have had about 5 jumping lessons since the vid! Don't worry, I jump quite often about every lesson at the end (small cross poles to work on release and balance) its just jumping lessons I jump higher. If that makes sense?
Because at our stables we pay for either jumping lessons or flat work.
And I've been riding ages (just not jumping!) Sorry for the confusion.
