Maura; oh oh oh I get what you mean. I rarely use groundlines anyways and just tend to use whatever is there.
MI; thanks for the compliment. Most of the poles are wood, they are all the painted ones, and we have a few pvc poles do. We normally use them for groundpoles but when we have a big course set up like that we usually run low on jumping poles so we use them. I've never had a problem with them, never had them shattered when the horse knocked them, or got caught in them. My old barn used to use them too and they were wonderful. If I were a horse I'd rather get caught up in a light pvc pole that I can kick out of my legs easily, then a hard wood piece that would hurt.
I'll admit I'm not the best jumper. I stopped taking lessons after one or 2 english ones (rode western for 3 years) then got Cowboy, and got an english saddle with him lol. So I pretty much had to teach myself, or have Jordyn give me little lessons. I'm looking into trainers and coaches now for winter riding, so by spring me and Cowcow can be ready to show. We'll only be doing 4h shows though haha.
