i use poles like youres and other random stuff like crates, tyres, wooden horses etc to hold them up

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky

ozarkmama = nothing. they just sit there for me.You have to get the poles to stop rolling so that they dont fall off.
if we want a low tyer jump, we put them on the side so they are flat.

I ride at my trainer's barn where there are jumps-a-plenty but when I'd go to my friend's house we'd put a 2X4 on chairs or buckets, or whatever we could find. it was fun :P

I use pretty much anything I can find...Lol! Barrels, logs, bricks to set height, etc... If it's not nailed down, and I can utilize it, I do.

we use just plain old logs. our friend brings over some logs because her horse is on our land so she does some jumping aswell. we just paint some of them randomly the others neatly.

P.S
i like your poles.they look realy good!

trust them,and they won't worry.
believe in them, and they will feel confedent.
love them, and they will love you back.

Ozarkmama it takes time and skill to get them to balance right, I will jump poles or just plain tyres. If you really wanted to you could place bricks on eaither side of the tyres but only to use them as standeds.
