My X country course made from junk around the farm

My partner has made these jumps just from the pallets, broken fence posts and junk he find lying around the farm. There are still a few more jumps being made but here are some of the jumps. The smallest jump is about 9 inches and the biggest is 3 ft

Its my personal Badminton

The Famous M Jump made out of logs and telegraph poles

Nice job. A question....if the horse hits the brush box, does it just tip over?

None of them are fixed, so if it was hit it would fall over.

Look around for thrown away artificial Xmas trees. The branches make great permanent stuffing for the brush boxes, Good job.

Nice job! Looks like fun :) You can also get an old, beat up Canoe and use that as a fence. Stuff it with fake flowers, shrubs etc, etc - or flip it upside down. Same with Allison's idea - fake Christmas Tree's.

The ideas are never ending :)
