Smile What do you use for jumps?

Just wondering what you are all using for jumps these days? Weather you have proper jumps or make do with what you can find?

These are a few of mine I finally painted today :) Still have some more to paint when I get time :)

Very cute! I use logs...we just cut down 58 oak trees. Tried to sell them on craigslist...nobody wanted them...so we made "natural" jumps.

Not as freshly painted as yours. :)







None of the pics are me, therefore I scribbled out faces. :)
Old photo's but still have all the same barrels/poles/etc.

It is not enough for a man to know how to ride; he must know how to fall.

Right now I'm using old fence posts on feed buckets ;) But my spring project next year is going to be building some jump standards and a few "cross country fences" I can't wait to paint them awesome colors I'm already planning. I'm going to have a watermelon jump (cuz I love watermelon colors), so I'll paint wide strips of green/pink-red on the standard, have one green pole, one pink-red pole, then I want to cut a semi-circle of plywood and paint it like a watermelon I'm going to spend a fortune in paint :\

I don't actually 'jump' like compete and all, I just do it for fun around the house and pasture... but I use whatever I can find in the pasture and yard... be in 2x4's, old logs, ditches, whatever...
