Wooden Horse Jumps are Superior

Wood Horse Jumps

Give your horses something stylish and sturdy to jump over. Our wood horse jumps in Washington, VA, are made from hand-selected wood to create a classic appearance. Not only that, they are durable, affordable, and completely customizable. Why settle for vinyl jumps that require sandbags because they blow over in the wind? For the finest-quality horse jumps for sale, you cannot go wrong when you depend on our company.

Appealing & Durable Wooden Horse Jumps

Believe us: your horse knows the difference between a vinyl jump and a wooden one. Vinyl jumps become brittle, and they can even shatter. Some horse owners have seen their horses get cut badly from these types of jumps – even requiring surgery. When this happens, your horse will be reluctant to jump again. This makes it unsafe for your horse and you.

At the same time, when the vinyl jump breaks or shows signs of wear, it is impossible to fix. You cannot just paint them like wood horse jumps. We build wood jumps to last, and we proudly customize our horse jump designs to suit your needs. These are long-lasting jumps that add appeal to any arena or farm.

At Old Dominion, we have been building show jumps for more than 20 years, and we are frequently asked whether wood horse jumps are better than plastic vinyl jumps. Our answer to you is “do not buy vinyl!” Every year, we receive many calls from new customers who say “I will never buy vinyl jumps again!” They do not need to explain why because we already know. Here are some things to consider when weighing the options between vinyl and wood horse jumps for sale:

  1. Vinyl jumps look cheap, plastic, and are expensive. For example, would you rather look at a vinyl sided house or a wood-sided house? We know the answer to this question. When it comes to appearance, wood is premium. For everyday use, it is common knowledge among most professionals.
  2. Vinyl jumps always require the assistance of ugly sandbags because they typically blow over in moderate winds.
  3. Eventually, vinyl jumps will break. When they do, you cannot fix them, and you cannot paint them like wood horse jumps.
  4. Perhaps the most significant drawback is that horses do not respect vinyl jumps. Because of the weight comparison of wood, horses habitually step on them when used as ground lines and knock them out of the cups when used as jump rails. We have had two customers over the years who have had to have pieces of plastic removed from their horses’ legs.


"The problem with vinyl jumps is they do not last as long as wooden jumps. They blow over and the use of sandbags is always necessary. The colors fade nor are they fixable when they break. They considerably diminish the look of your ring and the message you are sending about your facility.

Another huge detriment is that horses don't respect plastic like they do wood. For obvious reasons this is due to the difference in weight. They tend to carelessly step on the ground lines and jump through the poles when they're are set up in cups."

"I had moved my Show barn to a different location. I decided against bringing my own wooden jump course as they already had a ring full of vinyl jumps. During a lesson, one student's horse crashed through a ground-line pole. The horse was cut pretty badly but I was confident that the wound would heal OK. Four days later we had to have our vet out to surgically remove plastic shards lodged in the posterior of the pastern. I wish I never let go of my wooden jumps!"
