Thinking of building a nice jump for my trainer for helping me through show season this year since we are moving to a new barn next week. Wondering if anyone has ever made a nice jump out of something besides wood (maybe pvc) and how you did it.
I was thinking of maybe making two standards out of a thicker PVC and then use connecting pieces to make a cup that could slide up and down with a pin and holes drilled in the pipes.
Go to the section of your local hardware store that sells PVC intended as fences and deck railings. You'll get a lot more interesting and wood-like shapes there than in the downspout section.
The commercial PVC wings are welded together or slotted into CNC machined openings, but for a one off build you'll be better off buying brackets in the deck railing section that screw and clip even though they will be quite expensive.
