Horny

It's taken three weeks, but my "weekend project" is finally done....
Or mostly done, anyway!  
I'm still picking at the finishwork and can't quite decide if I like the weathered stain look of the jump risers. 
Still, it's done enough to be show-able...   
Extreme Cowboy Trail here we come!

  5. I love the look all together, although I do have to say I'm not quite sure wether I like the weathered wood supports or not. I think it will turn out fabulos though! I only have one question, don't you think jennibray is jumping a little too high for the jump and a western event? I would be greatful if you reply.

    1. She is most definitely over jumping, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Most of the horses showing in this class do overjump, and I have a whole file full of reference photos showing jumps similar to Jenni's.

      It's also worth mentioning, that the real horse jump that inspired this had the risers stacked on top of some poles. I'm not sure if I'm going to do that or not, but it's possible this jump will get a little taller.

    2. Thanks so much for replying! I actually like the weathered wood look now. I just think it ties the whole thing together. Jennibray is an awesome model and I think this setup will do just fine. :)

  6. Congratulations on finishing (or nearly) something I never dreamed existed. And I've seen many jumps and driving obstacles. The weathered look is good.
