Anything tied to one pole so that it will blow in the wind. Blowing things are generally speaking terrifying. Brightly colored blowing things are even worse.

My trainer told me a story when she was like 20 her trainer put a washer machine under and besides the jump. I guess to horses that is some scary stuff.

I painted big cardboard boxes with crazy patterns and colours. My horse though I was mad at first when I asked him to jump these crazy things but now he doesn't blink an eye. Also the cardboard is cheap, free for me, just ask a shop for some old boxes, and safe, crumbles if you fall or go through, though I haven't tested this, yet...
