Jumping horses requires jumps.  The varieties are as many as our imagination.  Most people use standards which are the vertical parts and then lay a rail between 2 standards using cups.  The cups support the rails but allow them to fall off when hit by a horse limb.  Of course some horses just crash into the jump but these are also sensitive so that a toe touch can derail a jump.

Other jumps are made with immovable objects such as logs, rock walls and embankments.  These are unforgiving when a bad jump occurs.  People have died or become seriously injured with all kinds of jumps but this occurs more commonly with these types.

I have seen plain jumps and artistic jumps with images meant to distract horses as an added challenge.  A long time ago I even saw live chickens inside a coop as a jump but I don’t think this is allowed anymore.
