View Full Version : Books on XC jump construction and design?

Oct. 6, 2009, 05:03 PM
I used to have a good little book on building xc fences - it was unusual because it was "landscape" instead of the regular "letter-page" shape - had a green cover with a b/w photo on the front, I seem to remember.

Anyway, can anyone help me with a title search for that book, or recommend other good books on designing and building your own cross-country jumps?

This one is great: http://www.amazon.com/Design-Build-Cross-Country-Course-Morshead/dp/1872119867

It even has "shopping lists" for materials!!!

I might still have it. Seems like the cover was green....If I could find it, I will let you know, but as far as finding books like that, find a place where they specilize in horsey type of books. Back when dinosaurs roamed the earth, before internet, I bought several neat horsey type books from a place called Blue Ridge books. I think that was the name. Somewhere in the North east.

I'm pretty sure I have seen the book you are talking about in a tack shop in PA... but it was several years ago... maybe you should try your local tack shop?
