Smile home made horse jumps??

Hey guys just wondering about making homemade horse jumps, if peeople could give ideas off kinds off jumps to make, or send a pic off a good design for a course that'd be great :)
Also, my materials for making jumps include barrels, sticks, tyres, 3 poles etc

If you search through some pages in the jumping section, you will find a thread with a lot of suggestions :) I think it is called 'homemade jumps'.

Marlea, Home Depot is an American home improvement store that sells lumber, building supplies, home improvement stuff. Guessing you don't have them in Australia?

CJ8 is suggesting you improvise jumps with building materials.

For instance, with two 5 gallon plastic buckets and a couple of landscaping timbers, you can build cross rails and low verticals.

Look up how to make jump standards online, they're really easy and relatively cheap to make.

Having said that, I just went to home depot to look for poles, the ones I found aren't exactly round, they're not octagonal either, more oval shaped. Would it matter if I used these?? They're only $3.95 a pole and they're rough cut so none are exactly the same shape.

You can use hay bales. I also like using barrels, but if you lay them on their side, you should put a pole on each side so they don't roll.

I have some poles that are square that I drilled holes in so I can stick flowers in them. Then they can be used as a 'flower box' under the jump or a cool pole with flowers for the jump =]

You can easily make so many jumps with stuff laying around. Concrete blocks/ buckets/ or you can get 4" x 4' wood posts drill holes in them and attach legs to the bottom and walah! You have standards.

Whatever you choose to use, think of the risk to horse and rider should the horse crash instead of clear the jump.

Not trying to be a spoil sport - just saying I've seen enough stitched up horses at the clinic with owners kicking themselves for their moment of stupidity.

I just finished these jump standards today, i'm getting poles either over the weekend or next week. The barn manager suggested we have a barn party and have everyone paint a jump standard, I guess this mean i'll be building a few more over the next few months.
