building a jump?

Not sure where to put this, but anyway..
My boyfriend is in a shop class (they can make whatever they want and have more wood than they know what to do with) so I asked for them to make a jump for my barn.
I really want a ramp jump, they're my favorite jumps.
I'm on my phone, so I can't find any good "instructions" or guidelines. I don't want to throw this at him and have it be hard work for him and end up being a dangerous or unusable jump.

Also, i'm wondering about the height, length, as well ad the angle of the jump. I have no idea what they should be. I'd like to make it maybe 2' but not less than 1.5'
how can we scale it to the right size? I want it be fair for the horses, as well as fellow students.

If anyone knows of good sites or has their own plans I would really appreciate it!!

I saw that as well. I was going to use that as the general instruction and then figure out all the measurements
