4ft? Very impressive :D I've done 3, but honestly I really need to improve my riding position. My weight doesn't stay in my heels over jumps and I tend to throw myself foreward, and occasionally ram back on my poor horses back. While I have some contact with my knees so my upper body is decent (most of the time :/) my lower leg tends to fly back over jumps. I've had people video tape me riding/take pictures and it looks like I start to put my weight on my stirrup over the jump. Maybe I should do more no stirrup exercises? It makes me so mad at myself because he could be doing 3'6 courses easily (I'd say Jetty could clear 5ft easily, but I haven't free jumped him) if it weren't for me. In fact, here's a picture of when he was first starting to jump: http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c173/Jettylestre- am/940262724_l.jpg (that's not me on him)

Do you do eventing? I've always wanted to do eventing with Jetty, or atleast cross country. The thing is he gets really nervous and jumpy on trail by ourselves, and even if he sees a person he practically has a heart attack. Oh well, that's my fault to...I should be taking him on trail more!
