Because You and Your Horse Come First

Over the last few years there has been a renewed focus on and interest in improving the safety of cross-country courses while continuing to provide riders with a challenging competition experience. As a nationally-known cross-country builder and former competitor himself, Eric Bull of ETB Equine Construction, LLC has worked to implement a number of safety initiatives, including the use of frangible pins in many new jumps.

Ground Anchors

ETB Construction has become an industry leader in building safe and economical portable jumps. Importing an idea from the United Kingdom and improving upon the design, Eric has created a ground anchor/bracket combination which adds an additional level of safety and stability to the installation of portables on cross-country courses. To secure each portable jump, two pieces are required: the ground anchor is an 18” (or 24”) stake with a bolt on top for driving it into the ground and for easy removal. There is a 3/8” hole drilled into the top of the spiraled steel for multiple applications.

18” Ground Anchor: $16.75 each
24” Ground Anchor:
 $17.75 each
All shipping costs to be paid by the customer.

“L” Brackets

The “L” bracket is the piece of hardware that is fastened to the side of the portable jump. It has a slot in the bottom through which the stake is driven, forming a strong and stable connection with the ground.

“L” Bracket—5” high, 3” wide: $6.00 each
“L” Bracket—8” high, 3” wide:
 $6.25 each
All shipping costs to be paid by the customer.
