    Bigger than he's jumping now but I doubt he'll be a grands prix horse

    It looks like she'll max out at 3', maybe 3'3.

    I'm with Angelico on this one, it doesn't look to me like she uses her body well enough or has the raw athletic ability to easily make it around a 3'6" course.

    This.

    ETA: It also depends on the horse. From what I see, I agree with above. I did have a horse that didn't have the best knees, but he had plenty of over and up and a nice step. We did the 3'3-3'6 jumpers and free jumped 3'9. Again, it wasn't the best knees, but he never touched a pole unless it was rider error.

    Cute greenie but hard to tell anything from those 3 photos and one video. Canter needs to improve so she can improve her body use and then it'll be easier to tell what she can do. If you want a real assessment, set up a proper grid/jump chute and get a solid video of her going through as you slowly raise the height. That choppy stop/start video of her at a show cutting away as she jumps is impossible to tell anything with. She keeps going out of the frame.

    There is no way to say from these videos, she isn't even trying. I for one would not dare to limit a horse to 3' based on a tiny video clip. this is a cute little horse.

    (but it should probably be a hunter, and it will probably end up a 3' horse due to step I would think. No reason you can't dabble in the jumpers and go higher sometimes if you want.)

    Hard to tell but I vote 3' and a Hunter. It might get over higher fences but the way it uses its body over these tiny, airy, fences say it's best spot is going to be around 3'. That's not a bad place for a cute one like this.
    When opportunity knocks it's wearing overalls and looks like work.
