Keep your man busy.





When my husband, Tim, isn't busy stitching old feed sacks by hand to make some sassy bedroom pillows, he finds his way to the power tools. His latest project, and it was a big one, was to build 5 sets of jump standards for the riding arena. Check the video tutorial for how to build your own.
(That's my friend Sally Waugh on her horse Captain John.)

Awesome video complete with great music and a sneak peak of a horsey! My dad made a few sets of standards for me when I was in high school, so it was great remembering that too! Enjoy your jumps!!!!

Makes me want to take up riding again. I really think there is nothing like jumping....other than jumping a green horse and then you may actually end up jumping said standard, instead of rails. That was fun!
