simple jumping courses?

Does anyone have any simple course layouts?

If you could just post a picture that shows the whole course design.

It would probably be easier if you had a painting done on the program called paint or something instead of having a photo you know?

I would like the courses to include a reasonable amount of jumps, but not too mmuch (like over 4 and under maybe 12)

For hunters or jumpers?

Uhm... I don't know the difference *embarresed* sorry.

I think it's jumpers though.

Just a simple show jumping course. But it can be made out of cross country jumps (tyres and barrels)

Well, it would make a big difference in how the course is set up.

Jumpers is a timed event, with faults for going over time, and for rails down. Jumps are bright and colourful. Course can be as short, but are more likely to have more then 10. There are usually tighter turns, with rollbacks, and bending lines.

Hunters have 8 fences typically. The obstacles are natural looking to simulate what a hunter would jump in the hunt field. Courses are normally 3 lines (2 outside, one diagonal) with 2 single fences...a verticle and a oxer are the norm here.

Do you have standards and poles to make this course? What are you going to use it for?

Uhm I don't know. I'm not a serious jumper. I just want a nice course.

An easy course has 4 jumps along the outside, and one or two jumps on each diagonal. It's very easy to do a few different simple courses with this setup, such as: Long side, diagonal, longside, diagonal. That way you can figure out distances and tempo very easily as they will be consistent.
Are you working with a trainer? If you're learning to jump, I highly suggest you work with someone to make sure you learn how to jump safely - it's a dangerous sport. They can teach you the proper way to set up a course (how many feet between each jump) and teach you things like setting up ground lines on the correct side.

No i've been riding since I was 6 so im not starting out

I guess all I want is just new courses, like a picture of something of a course

I took lessons every week (at least once a week) for the first 15 years of my riding career, and have had help along the way since, just not consistently with a single trainer every week. When I start back up in earnest (soon, I hope!) I will be taking lessons again to get my position back in shape.
If you're starting out in a new sport (which it certainly sounds like you are) you really should have professional help to make sure you're doing it in the safest way possible for both you and your horse. Based on your thread a while back, you would certainly benefit from working with someone more experienced. You need someone to teach you how to properly set up a course - distances, among other things, matter. It's so much more than just throwing a few jumps up and hoping for the best.
I would prefer not to post a diagram, I really want to encourage you to seek the help of an instructor. :) Based off your other thread in the Critique section, you have potential and you have the right attitude towards learning. I really think you would benefit from learning from someone qualified to teach you how to jump properly.

No, no you don't understand... i've been jumping for years. I can jump 90cm and I know how to have a good jumping position.
I can jump, and i'm not starting out.
I'm getting bored of my silly little course with 3 lousy jumps and my noncreative mind needs help to think of something else

This is a simple course I remember riding through back when I was jumping. --

Although, I agree 100% with JustDressageIt. Even if you are not a beginner, there is still ALOT you do not know, and when it comes to riding, especially in jumping or other more dangerous disciplines, having someone there to guide you is always a positive, and in most cases, a MUST if you hope to progress to the higher levels.

Best of luck,
