Re: [RC] blaze orange/getting shot - Cheryl Ann
Hi Rene -
Go back to the fabric store and get some orange vinyl, usually on rolls in
the craft section of the bigger stores (I got mine at Jo-ann) and some
self-adhesive Velcro. You can cut strips, stick on the velcro, and apply
these to your halters, bridles, collars, etc. You can also fabric glue or
pin this to your saddle pads, riding coat, pants, boots, etc. Attatch it to
slint boots if you use them. It does get stiff in the cold, but I have some
of this that has so far lasted me several years. It's also inexpensive.
You can also buy orange duct tape, I just picked some up the other day.
I also use orange halters, headstalls, reins, saddle blankets, rump rugs,
and neck bands. I myself wear orange, too, in case we get separated and I
have to walk out of the woods on foot. The 'kids' also wear bell strips, and
I wear a bell on my jacket zipper pull. And this is just to ride on a
private farm, where there aren't even supposed to be any hunters.
Hope this helps -
