When can I start jumping my horse?

Generally we advise to wait a year after initial breaking in order to build a relationship and get the horse used to riding out and settled.

So if a horse was broken at 4, start jumping training at 5, and so on.

As with most things it depends on the horse and your own ability, so a little leeway is fine.
