1m = 3'3"
1.1m = 3'6"
1.2m = 3'9"
1.3m = 4'2"


  1. Thanks... sorry for being obtuse.

    Wow, 1.2 m is higher than I thought. I still vote yes. You can do it!

  2. Thanks - my older daughter (who was 15 at the time) showed our jumper mare Lily at 1.2 m (with higher jump-offs) and was doing well when we had to retire Lily due to heaves - she could still jump but no longer had the speed. It was a pity - Lily had the ability to do 5'6" (she'd done it with our trainer's daughter aboard) and my daughter had jumped her 5' in lessons, and was just about ready to move up and compete in higher divisions. Lily's grandsire was Furioso II, which explains where she got her natural talent. Although my daughter isn't doing jumpers right now - mostly hunters on a prospect horse - I enjoy reading about your adventures in the jumper ring - keep up the good work!

  3. Haha no Sprinkler it's fine. I struggle with he conversions myself and then I was like might as well put them up.

    Kate, that is a real shame about Lily.I have great granddaughter of Furioso II I hope she can jump as big haha!

    Thanks for the votes of confidence. It does really help.
