    We have a big-footed gelding that just walks right over our cattle guard... the solution we came up with came from this book I picked up called the Horseman's Scrapbook....
    Basically, we took a bicycle tube and strung it across the cattle guard, tying both ends with some good rope to the gates on either side, so the tube is sorta suspended above the guard like a mini one-wire fence. The tube stretches, too, so you can drive over it, no problem. You'll just have to experiment with height, though.
    Not sure if that'll help a *jumping* horse, but it certainly stopped 2-Pak from walking across.
