Designing and building xc jumps for schooling
I am hoping to get some xc schooling fences built this year (um, when this friggin snow ends), and would love suggestions on affordable, adjustable xc jumps. I have a field of about 10 acres that I can use.
I recall the jump cup/standards for xc that were at the USEA Convention back when it was in Reston. I would like to get a couple of those. I also have some terrific but big logs that could be dragged out of the woods. They are from a large and mature oak tree that fell last year. I have a tractor but I really doubt it can drag the logs, so I will have to hire someone to come in and move them. I'm not sure how affordable that will be, but I hate to waste those incredible logs, that range from BN to Training height.
Anyone have experience with this? (I am sure!). Advice on affordability, innovation, etc.?
