XC Jumps

Hey guys.

I just need some ideas here. I am makig some new jumps for my CX/SJ course. I need some really spooky ideas for them or some that you have at home. The first few times Cappy jumps something new, he always jumps big and bold. After that, he dosen't blink an eye. So I would like portable jumps, or some stuff I can add to it easily. Please post photos and/or websites. Thanks

Eventing is what my heart is made of, well, mostly!

Bright colored water buckets. Put ten of them in a row and put a jump rail on top of them, or just put two on either ends of a jumping rail and use them to support the bar.

If you're working on desensitization, put streamers on raised standards on either side of the jump and let them wave in the breeze.

You could make a brush box with an simple frame of 1x4's and fill it with fake evergreens from a craft store.

Hay bales make an easy portable jump.

Barrels with some ground poles to keep them from rolling.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

Throw a tarp over any jump for a coop, under a jump for a liverpool, in front of a jump for a ditch. Instant spookiness factor for most horses ;)

A chevron would be a good jump. They're VERY looky.

^ And make it white.

I've noticed solid-ish jumps that are painted white tend to be looky as well.

We got two pallates and made a jump over a fence that can be done either way.
Water throughs are also spooky. Logs in a shawdow of a tree. Find a bush make sure its safe and there is a jump.
Anything you can think of you can jup really its all a matter if making it safe! My horses don't spook anywhere becuse they jump my course at home that I change with bales tarp plastic etc so nothing is as scary.

Haha, check out this one. It's a beast jump, and one of the only jumps Willie refused multiple times. Don't look at me, I was so surprised he actually jumped it and it's my fault for not being ready. XD

Strange- that is a very interesting looking jump! Lol Don't say that you don't look good! Though not the best form you've ever had, you still look fantastic!
