See if you can get some old oil drums. Those make good jumps, both laid on their sides or if you put a pole across two upright barrels.

4x4s for uprights. Cut them in half so you have two 4' standards. Use 2x6's for the feet. Cut them to 18" lengths. Attach them to the base in a clover leaf pattern for a sturdy base. Drill holes starting at 18" from the bottom and every 3 inches up to the top. Add jump cups and you have jumps.

Much easier to make jump, two bales of straw.

Well you could find some old tyre's that's what I use, just stacked up on top of one another they work great

Bales of hay work great.

Dont know your budge but you can buy little cavalettis for $50-$70 a pair that can be stacked. There are a few different brands

My hubby made me these last year ... He capped the ends of the PVC pipes so that they wouldn't get as dirty or filled with anything ... also he ordered the cups online and they fit perfect.

^ those look professional! I am trying to get the bf to make me some, but I think our first few attemps will be a bit messy lol. I've never looked at pvc pipes, I like their light weight but I feel like they may be easier to hit off if a horse knocks them. Of course any rail should come out of the cups. Have you had a horse break any of them?

Nope none of them have broke and they don't get water logged like wood does as well as they don't chip paint and aren't really heavy :)

I suppose you could fill them with sand if you want weighted ones.
