Thank you for the great tips! I greatly appreciate it.
I only need it for one horse. I don't weld, but I do know a couple people who could help me out in that department if needed. I'm going to take a look into some of these ideas, see what I can get my hands on and put something together.

Our is a capped piece of pipe. The base is an old disk blade.

The umbrella stand really works well! (except mine is super heavy... lol) We just slit a tennis ball to place on top of it. So far so good!

This is what I use. They only come in pairs, but for $30, you can give one to a friend. They do tip easily, so I don't recommend it if your horse does not stand still while trimming. I wish that I had the means to bolt it to a board, so that it couldn't tip, but for the most part, my horses behave and I don't really have any problems with it.

Jack stands work great! You can cut an old piece of carper into strips to wrap and extend the cradle. I duct taped mine the first time with some foam carpet padding. I think it lasted 2 or 3 years like that. I attached it to a base (using a metal flywheel from an 18 wheeler as the base) with screws and a couple of brackets the hubby made. It weighs a ton LOL but it is stable and as safe as I could make it.

I should mention I ground the teeth off the flywheel before using it!
