    Default Your pictures and ideas, please!

    Looking for pics and ideas for decorating the jumps in our arena for Halloween. Thanks!

    we've always bought scarecrows and tied them to standards, straw bales and pumpkins for the jumps! Corn stalk things for the standards would work as well

    This is a picture from a while ago, at a schooling show always held in the middle of October and they always have a jump like this:

    Default Suggestions

    I don't know that we have had a Halloween show, per se, but, we have had Fall Shows and we have the mums, scarecrows, corn stalks, bales of hay, pumpkins, etc. etc. to decorate the jumps. Also, we have stapled those strands of Fall colored leaves (from Michael's or the Dollar Store) to jump standards before, which looked tasteful.

    Color Theme: Maroon, Gold, Orange, Tan, Brown, etc. (All of the "Fall" colors)

    For Halloween, though, it might be cool to stretch those cobweb things over the standards and put big spiders on them (on a line or on a single jump).

    Add that to the coffin jump suggestion and now you have two or possibly three jumps of eight!

    Then, maybe a skeleton jump/line - with those small skeletons strapped to a standard or two (with a grey and white jump)

    Other possibilities: a pumpkin jump/line, doing something creative with a Trick-or-Treat motif, or something with headstones, like a graveyard.

    I'm tapped out - send pictures when you set it up

    I would put those Spider web things on the standards for one jump. Instead of boxes maybe a line of pumpkins underneath the poles. Someone else said to tie scarecrows to the Standards. Hay bales for boxes is also fun. That's all i can think of!

    This pretty much sums up everything!
