THE STONE WALL JUMP
The Stone Wall Jump is a primary jump on the center area of competition in terms of viewing from the stands.
The jump is  a cemented natural stone jump that is 3 ft high and about 2 ft wide.
Additional poles were added over the jump during competition to add height for hunter and jumper competitions.

The Stone Wall Jump From the Side

This angle on the Stone Wall Jump shows the width and the wood insertion at the top of the stone jump.
This is a safety factor for horses that tend to hit the front of the jump.
If a horse hits wood with their legs, the wood will give more than the stone.
