Homemade Jumps?

I need to start getting more jumps out to the barn so I can start training my horse for shows.
A woman used to have two pairs of standards and wooden jump poles, but she left the barn and took them with her.
So I have nothing right now.

I need a way to build jumps! I'm in the process of making some right now that are a much bigger version of these:
Horsemans Pride Quick Cavaletti Jump Base - Statelinetack.com

But I need more than that.

They must be really easy to store, since I board in a place with a smaller arena so they can't get in the way. (I'll be jumping outside, in the bigger arena, but I want to keep the jump stuff inside. This has been cleared with the owner.)

Just so you know, I can't build standards because they have no way of getting out to the barn (I board) and I don't have enough room for them.
I also can't use hay bales.

Thanks!

my best home made jumpy right now, was logs and a few chairs. ( made cross rails out of the logs using the chairs. And I used 4 barrels, 2 to lay down with logs on either side to keep them from rolling, and 2 standing on the ends of those for a barrier and then I used to more logs to make a "chute" to the jump. And they work great for me. I am in the process of collecting tires atm as well. I am going to lay 3 flat on the ground and stand some up in the center of those.

for smaller jumpr I use buckets or baskts, for taller ones I use chairs or other old furniture. Or old tyres with a pole does great.
