The portable, affordable, safety cross country jump.
Cross country is an Olympic equestrian sport where a rider and horse must make it around a course of around 2-3 miles long in the shortest time possible jumping various difficulty of solid jumps.

I have discovered that cross country is considered one of the most dangerous of equestrian events. Even practice is hazardous as solid jumps are used due to the horse needing to see a physical object in order to jump. A collision can often cause injury for both horse and rider. Jumps are often expensive and hard to manoeuvre.

Lump resolves these issues as it is inexpensive to manufacture, portable by fitting in the boot of a car, low weight and visibly solid yet collapsable nature improving the safety by reducing the risk of injury.
