Horse jumps, blocks, and standards are obstacles that are man-made. Horse jumps are constructed to test the horse's skill and bravery. A traditional jumper course will usually contain a water feature or jump intended to look like a small pool of water. These courses will usually incorporate brightly colored jumps that are man-made to challenge the horse and rider. Equestrian jumping equipment in a hunter course will typically be more natural in appearance. Brush, picket fences and unpainted or wood are used to simulate obstacles that might be found in the hunting field. Flower box jumps are also popular at horse shows and are filled with artificial flowers. The heights of plastic horse jumps are adjusted to suit the level of experience of the horse and rider.
We carry horse jumps, blocks, and standards from brands like Burlingham and Weaver. All of our equestrian jumping equipment comes with the HorseLoverZ 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.
Shopping Guide for Horse Jumps
Whether you are interested in entering a jumping event, or you just want to learn more about the art of jumping, knowing the various types of horse jumps used during competitions and training is beneficial. This guide will give you an overview of the types of horse jumps available on the market.
Types of Horse Jumps
Bounce (No-Stride) Horse Jumps
A no-stride jump is created using multiple fences that are spaced in such a way as to prevent the horses from taking full strides between jumps. A no-stride jump may consist of a set of just two jumps or several jumps. As the number of fences increases so does the difficulty level for the horse and the rider. At HorseLoverZ.com, we offer Burlingham Sports Quick Cavaletti, which can be used for numerous exercises, including bounce jumps.
Bank Horse Jumps
A bank jump refers to going from one level to another. These jumps can either be created for a single jump or to perform multiple jumps. If multiple jumps are desired, a bank jump is built to resemble a ‘staircase.’ These jumps can be approached from either the downhill or uphill side. However, the horse finds it easier to navigate the uphill approach. The Burlingham Sports Flower Stairs Set at HorseLoverZ.com is weather-resistant, consists of materials that never need to be painted and can be filled with sand to ensure stability even in the windiest of environments.
Hogsback Horse Jumps
This jump is frequently seen in advanced equestrian events. The Hogsback jump consists of three uneven poles, each at a different height. The highest pole occupies the middle position. The Stacker & Stacker Stand Combo from Burlingham Sports is available in a variety of colors. This combo set can reach heights up to 3’6” (using standard 3” increments).
Wall Horse Jumps
These jumps resemble brick or stone. However, for the safety of the horse and the rider, these walls consist of lightweight material so that they will fall over in the event of an accident. At HorseLoverZ.com, we offer the customizable Burlingham Sports Culvert in grey or brown stone as well as the Picket Fence Wall by Burlingham.
Triple Bar Horse Jumps
The triple bar jump consists of three spread fences of varying heights, which are usually placed in ascending order (from shortest to tallest). Burlingham Sports Standard 81 fences are available at HorseLoverZ.com. These fences are sold in pairs and come in four designs, all of which resemble wood.
Vertical Horse Jumps
These obstacles are created by placing poles on top of one another vertically, without any space or spread between the bars. When choosing the product to create your vertical horse jump, consider the Burlingham Sports Standard 83. Offering a variety of colors, the resemblance of wood and well-marked jump heights, Burlingham's Standard 83 is the ideal product for creating a vertical horse jump.
