Does anyone know where to purchase something like that? I board and ride at a place that does not have any hunter course materials (flowers, walls, etc.), and would love to be able to dress up the plain jumps I set up. Orange cones, blue tarps, etc. only go so far to making things interesting. I don't want his first time seeing a brick wall to be at a show!

Reason: added link to article with photo
Take a picture of a brick wall, upload it to Shutterfly, or Snapfish, or Costco, or Walgreens, and make a blanket out of it! Just Google "photo blankets"
If you want something that's more like a tarp, you can do the same thing with many sign or banner making services, and they'll print it on banner material.... They will probably have a larger choice of sizes, too.
My website has step by step instructions on making your own jumps. Both the lattice and the rolltop were relatively easy and not too expensive. You have to scroll down a bit to get to the build your own jump section.
LOL TG! That was my 2 year old by Banderas! I was videoing them running around playing and was like 0.0 when she jumped it! My 6 year old (behind her) was like, um, no and took the X Here's the video It was one of those days that was very much a "TB day" and I wasn't feeling the whole riding thing.
Thanks JB Cool. I'm on a limited budget so like putting stuff together when I can
The plastic sheets that they sell at party stores are really thin and won't hold up. You'd have to attach some kind of backer to it to use it.
I've made some pretty cool flower boxes using dollar store flowers and a 4"x4"x10'. Paint, a drill, and some glue, and you have a cheap but nice looking flower box. I put little legs on my 4x4 to make it higer, but that isn't necessary if you are looking for easy.
Hey, thanks!! I'm busily making jumps and such for my WB who hasn't even trotted a set of ground poles yet . DH has two more standards and another set of poles to make when he comes back from man camp.
