I like to know what everyone else’s cull standards are. What’s a “good enough” jump height to justify them staying in your barn? Is there a specific age they have to reach it by? Stats requirement? DNA requirement? etc. Thanks in advance!!

I only keep my 90"+ jumpers for breeding including the natural ones, unless it's a rare bloodline than I will keep and breed 89" jumpers.
The age doesn't matter to me when they hit those marks.
I now only keep all 10s but will horseshoe the odd horse if it has all DNA great lines, etc.
I am just starting out, and I only have natural Paints at this time. I like to see mine hit at least 85" jump height, but now that they are coming along I may raise it to 87". I give them until 18 to peak. DNA - I am working towards having all Paints with super horse DNA. I only breed to those that have 8+ active DNA and no line breeding.
