I have various stacks of RR ties in my field for jumping. They're big and a pain in the butt to move, but make awesome jumps. Some are stacked with cinderblocks to create space between them, some are stacked in a pyramid shape, if you could somehow hang one or lift it enough you could put tires on it. They work great for me.

Would love to hear some more ideas!

I too love RR ties. They are a pain, but they are great. I love the idea of cinderblocks. Ofcourse telephone poles make great jumps too. You can pyramid them too, good idea to tie them together with a nylon rope or a rust proof wire.

And you don't need to post "subbing" to subscribe. There is a tab for that.

We had old flower boxes the were about 3'high, we donated to a friend years ago for jumps. THey worked great.

If you want bigger, there are always the hay wagon jumps you see at shows...a step up from the picnic table idea.

There is always planting a few bushes also, that grow upright like a hedge.

F & B you just reminded me. Flower boxes can also help fill in jumps that may have too much air -- even in the show ring. Try using a landscaping tie -- drill holes in the flat side and then you can put silk flowers or plastic. Looks great.
