Jump Gallery -- What Jumps Have You Built?

There's a eventer/jumper at the barn I hang out at, and I've cobbled together a couple of solid jumps for her. One has the stable name on it using the 8" wooden letters ($2 each) found at the craft department at Wal-Mart, and the other one I have pictures of here--I painted it and the rail different on each side to give a different look.

I can build some more but I need some ideas. What jumps have you built at your place? I'm looking for brush boxes, bridge looks, funky looking wings, etc. I'd make a roll top if I can figure out how to make the curve.

Doesnt look hard at all. Cut a barrel in half and nail some boards around it, or make a few half circles of wood from a patern and secure the boards to them, vertically. You'll probably need some help though.

Thanks. It wasn't that hard to do. Once I found out the desired height for it (as well as the other jump--they equalled four feet in height) I bought one 4'x8' piece of plywood at Home Depot and had the lumber person there cut it into pieces. A few 2x4's to make the frames, some $3 sample sizes for the colored paint (at Home Depot as well), a roll of blue painter's tape, a couple of wood fence poles for rails, and some folding handles for this one because they stand next to each other, and the total cost for both of them (not including the wood letter cost for the other one) was less than $50. I imagine that is a lot cheaper than what the professionally made ones cost.

subscribing. Im on my work computer so dont know if I have pics I can get from photobucket or not, but I know I def. have some at home on my computer I can add later. I tend to have to make random jumps out of just about anything lol. A few ive done are hay bales, you can do so much with just two or four gays bales as far as height. Ive taken old scrap wood and nailed colorful towels to it and also nail something to the bottom to weigh it down so it doesnt flap around :) I nail together all sorts of random pieces of scrap wood. I also use tarps, trash cans or barrels, paint weird colors, or anything I can find around the barn. Ill use a ladder and lay it over, lattice (sp?) fencing nailed to wooden boards, benches, logs, tireds, you name it I use it :) My horses are well versed in different sorts of jumps haha. Now most of these jumps arent something id want put up in a beautiful ring at a fancy barn, but I tend to jump out in the field or the barn im at now is very private and low key with the ring not really visible from the road so it doesnt look like a crap pile hahahah
