Unleash your creativity by designing a jump made entirely from recycled materials. Give your arena a fresh look and take pride in having built the jump (or jumps!) yourself. Explore your farm, home, or local thrift store to find items to upcycle into your design. From old wood flooring, wooden crates, and pallets to leftover home improvement materials, and floral decorations, the possibilities are endless.
Support pollinators such as butterflies, birds, and bees by creating a Living Jump. Identify beneficial native plants that provide essential food or habitat for these vital species and incorporate them into your jump's design. Consider factors such as sunlight and water requirements, as well as the jump's location in the arena or field. The National Wildlife Federation's Native Plant Finder is an excellent resource to identify native plants and learn how to care for them.
