Ahhh, skinnies.

Ok Ladies, try doing a Stump.



I have! Not easy I'll tell you what! Nelson and I would veer to the right the first 3 attempts. No matter how much I sat and kept him between my legs and I could of been looking at the sun - we still veered.

4th time was a charm. Now, that jump is allot of fun!

Or this! Could you imagine?!?!

A skinny that they have at Richland Park - is like this:

This is a trainer jumping an stallion we used to have. He was given back to the old owners since there is another one at the farm now. But this was probably only about 4ft wide. The pony is only like 11.2hh.

Since this thread got bumped back up, does anyone know where I can get round wooden poles in Connecticut?? I'm stumped. I've been to all the big box stores. Struck out at both Home Depot and Lowes. I'm thinking maybe a fencing supply company? I really want wood but might be forced to go PVC if I can't find wood. I really want to get back to jumping. If I get anymore desparate, I'm going to start dragging trees out of the woods.

If you buy 4x4 posts, you can cut the edges off with a circular saw set for a 45 degree angle. That rounds them off

As for PVC, there are two grades. The thinner pipe will shatter easily into knife-like edges. The heavier weight will be much harder to break.

The narrow jumps are excellent schooling. More and more XC jumps are trading huge for narrow and tricky. I love 4-5 foot jump poles. If jumping 4 foot poles, make sure you are not riding with your feet pointing out. You don't want to hook your toes on a standard and bend them back. It really hurts.

do you know anyone who grows tabacco or has a tabacco shed ? Tabacco poles are perfect to use as jump poles, & you can just cut them to the lenght you want
