A log, brush, tarp, a LOW stone wall (like 6 inches. might not be good if your horse isn't a good jumper. You don't want your horse to hit it by accident)

Though she be but little, she is fierce

You can use buckets and other things like that as your standards. You should probably steer clear of jumping solid obstacles such as logs and stone walls if either you or your horse are new to jumping.

edit- I just realized you want XC jumps, sorry! but it will be safest and easiest for you to jump regular jumps (as in jumps that will fall if you knock them) with scary fillers rather than jumping solid obstacles. Especially if you are at home without a trainer. For fillers you can use buckets, saddle pads over your pole, and maybe some brush from a tree or something.

You can try jumping barrels or logs, but do you have a trainer? It would be best for a trainer that is familiar with you and your horses abilities to suggest things that would be safe for you to jump.

Or you could post some pictures of you and your horse jumping so we can get a better idea of what you guys need. :)
