I'm on a campaign.
Matt and I want to deconstruct the ugly pigeon coop in the back yard...and I am chomping at the bit (literally?) to get to riding and conditioning Zeus for this year's competitive season!
Wait. Stop. I know. Pigeon coop? Not a chicken coop?
Yep. Pigeons. Why anyone would want to have pigeons is beyond me (especially after living in NYC), but the darn thing is huge, has multiple doors, and its own gutters!
Anyway, we'd been talking about what to do with it, and I am on record as saying, "I want jumps!"
I'm ready to head out now with a crowbar and go to Home Depot to try and duct tape something together.
But really, what kind of jumps can you make from scrap wood?
You can make what we call a coop!We can also make a ramp, which the famous Jimmy Wofford is standing in front of. Bonus points if you add doors and windows on it, as if little gnomes live inside. Some horses are convinced they do, and it will spook them on course.
We can build the outline of a ditch, perhaps on either side of the natural stream in our field.
