Hi I wont to start jumping a bit more, but don't have any jumps or equipment for jumps, poles, wings etc. Just wondering if you had any ideas for me to make a few small jumps? (I mean small im a scaredie cat lol)

you can use all sorts of things as long as its put together safely...
We used barrels in the past and just put them on their sides, or anything that's laying around the ranch

Take some barrels and lay light logs over them.

bales of hay work too... sometimes if your horse is hungry its not the best idea but its worked in the past and its a nice small jump too

Bucket(s) stacked up with a long stick for a pole makes for a good makeshift jump.
