Many children love horses. They are majestic creatures with a long and celebrated history. Their relationship with humans is one of function and facility, as they have been used as laborers as well as companions. In today's world, horses are often regarded as close as the canine to families, particularly those on farms. In fact, people ride them for recreation, for racing, and for sports like polo and the equestrian. One of the most prestigious and elegant ways to ride a horse is through an obstacle course of horse jumps. These events bring man and horse together for a majestic romp through a beautifully sculpted course.
Horse jumps can be made out of many different materials. The simplest jumps are typically made of wood, perhaps out of tradition; after all, the sport is one of the oldest in the modern world. For the purpose of practicing, you might find very basic designs, like a stand with a bar that might resemble a long hurdle. Timber jumps may also have braces along the stands that ensure they stay upright even if they are struck by a horse during a mistimed or poorly executed jump.
Of course, it is also very common to find horse jumps made out of PVC pipe. PVC is a very lightweight, synthetic material that is easy to mold and shape and is relatively inexpensive, which means that it should not be much trouble to replace them if they are damaged. White PVC piping is also easy to manipulate, so you can add different colors or stencils if you choose to, which is often a good way to make your course more interesting. Most of the time, PVC works in tandem with regular or reinforced plastic to ensure that each piece is built with durability and longevity in mind.
