Quality wood poles are expensive and heavy but I prefer them HANDS DOWN to PVC. I can't stand PVC for all the reasons people already stated. We use PVC wing standards with wood inserts in the feet so they don't fall down (and I've seen THEM shatter!) with wood poles. Best combo IMO.
no the ones I get are 10ft long. There just normal weather treated fence post with a flat side.

Talking to your horse is sometimes all the therapy you need.

that's good your horses don't hit them! It just seems like a horse knocking full force on the wood corner of a jump like that is going to hurt and do more damage then you think ya know.
