Making jumps-ideas?

I need some ideas on different things to use as jumps. Eventually my dad's going to make me some standards and I'm going to get wooden poles, but right now I'm using what I've got. I haven't jumped a whole lot and I've just jumped cross rails and small verticals. (My horse has jumped higher but I'm not there yet.) Anyway, what are some things I can use? I've been using barrels/buckets and putting PVC poles on them to make cross rails, but I need more ideas. They can be for verticals or solid jumps. Thanks!

If you have traffic cones you can put those under the jump. You can find lots of sticks and use bailing twine to weave then together to make a panel thing. You can use fallen trees. I have even seen someone jumping beanbag chairs. Just make sure it's safe if your horse bumps it or you fall on it. You can pretty much jump anything
