What to look for when buying a horse for jumping?

What to look for when buying a horse for jumping?
Hi Mit, it really depends on you, your riding skills, the level you want to show at...

I like horses who are truly kind, who love jumping, want to go over the fence without rushing, aren't lazy when it comes to flatwork. Health is really important too, if you are not looking for a Grand Prix horse you don't need an absolutely perfect vet check but joints are important, respiratory system too, the back as well...

For the age, it depends on your level and your goal. But most of all you have to have a feeling with your horse so it's really all about it when you try horses, having your trainer with you is also useful 🙂

Hope it helps!
