    Question What to use?

    Hi I'm not sure if this is the right thread to be posting this on so if it isn't please let me know :).

    I moved my horse to a barn back in Feb, bad part is it has no jump standards just poles. I've been using storage containers as my "standards" but I can really only jump 1ft,2ft, or 3ft by using them. Also buckets are available for me to use as well but my question is, is if you do not own any standards what do you use for them? I'm looking to be able to jump up to 3'3" (possibly 3'6" if I find things to stack up) so its kinda hard to find things to reach that height.

    Thanks to anyone who helps! :)

    Previously, I have had the similar experience of not having jump standards and had to be created. Thankfully, now I have access to many jumps.

    You can use just about anything as standards - barrels, milk creates, tires..

    Hey, if you look at my profile picture I even used garbage bins once.

    Water troughs, hay bales, picnic tables, lawn chairs, anything you can find laying around !

    Could also make some. I'm sure you know a guy who fancies himself a carpenter!

    It's fairly easy to make your own, I might make a youtube view in the near future explaining it but for now you can google it and a few really nice videos come up (not from youtube)
