Barbed wire, single wire, chain-link fence, whicker chairs, plastic chairs...

Some people jump the weirdest things...

We have tons of bushes with thorns in the forty, and a few jumps with brances around them- can we still jump those?

The branches are fine. But the thorns can be priorly dangorous, if your horse hits the bush:)(

wood is okay as long as your horses legs are appropriately protected.
PVC isnt a good idea because it gets brittle and can shatter.
