Making cross country jumps

I want to make some jumps to put around in the pasture. I already have a tire jump in mind and have logs and a door panel that I was going to he's. Do you guys have some ideas and how to make them work?

You could get a bunch of small enough branches that are a little thick strip them of the twigs sticking out of them and put them in a long pile and pile them up to the height you want the jump.

Don't use pvc pipe for rails as horses get lazy when they know they can easily knock them down.

Cross country jumps don't usually have rails. & you could make a ditch, one with water, and one without.

Thumbs up

if you want to make a ditch jump you can buy two 6ft 4in x 4in and buy some black plastic and nail the plastic to the poles and then roll it onto one pole.
and you can put a hole through the poles so that you have a hole on each flat face then you can put a pin through them to hold it in place.
then you can start of jumping a small ditch without digging a ditch and once your horse is happy jumping it you end the day on a good jump.
and the next time you go and make it wider and jump it and you just keep it simple on the width.
and before you know you can jump 4 to 5ft wide ditches......alan
