Tires make an awesome cross-country jump it pretty scary for horse ;) At my barn we just put them all up vertacly and side by side. We also use just a vertical jump and put balsam or pin branches on and around it. If you can find a fallen tree truck that be also cool :) Really we just use anything anythign we can find that would be scary taros are also awesome!! Good luck!

Our Hoofbeats were many, but are Hearts beat as One.

I love old tree trunks or railroad ties stacked up to different heights. Plastic or metal barrels are great too.

Christmas trees! I go around and collect them from all my friends after the holidays, stack them up at wide/tall as you want and your all set. Best part is if your horse hits them by accident they'll give just like a jump rail.... So no dangerous flipping over it :)

We have cement blocks that I stack and set the rail on top of. If the horse knocks the pole, it falls forward and off!

square hay bales, barrels, tires, and logs are all great

Horses lend us the wings we lack
