U can make jumps pretty much out of anything! Just make sure it'll fall apart easily should your horse take a tumble over it!! Lol

My faveorite thing is 2 mineral buckets (black buckets about 1 1/2 ft high) and an old fence post set on top. I have also used our cow feeders (long plastic troughs set about a foot off the ground) and anything I could find.

An old canoe, tipped over ;) That's what they have at this hunter pace I'm going to this weekend -- fun times!! Also other ones we've used...

* lattice leaned up against some orange cones
* tarp laid over the lattice
* tires are always good, and you can dig a trench and half bury them so that they stay put
* barrels or oil drums
* bales of hay
*pumpkins (it's getting to be that time of year!) all in a row or even stacked up on each other like a wall :)
* logs or branches

The possibilities are endless!!

Not going to lie, building horse jumps isn't as hard as it looks.. we used to build ours with wood and paint them, easy non-complicated standards. But otherwise, everything everyone is saying are great ideas :)

Logs work great too! For polls also you could use some light weight skinny branches maybe some cone's in a line!? There are so many ideas! Like everyone else said buckets hay bales!! Have fun!

Making a jump out of hay bales kinda doesnt work for me, tess will stop dead and start eating it, or she will paw it apart and roll in it. But I made my own jumps out of two round logs with a pole on top. It works good :P
