[RC] ID on horse when traveling - Tx Trigger

At rides, and when traveling TO rides, I braid an ID tag into my horses mane. You can either have a tag made, attach some ribbon to it, and then braid into mane, or the most simple, and lease expensive thing to do, is braid some light colored ribbon into the mane, and leave a couple inches to hang down at the bottom, and have your cell phone number written on it. In a pinch, flagging ribbon will work. I have searched for lost horses at rides, and often they no longer have their bridle on when found. While they can rip out a braid, it is less likely to happen than it is to lose their head gear. A friend puts in a braid, then has a 2" piece of  white velcro, both hook and loop, that she puts through the braid, and pushes closed. Written on it, is her name and phone number. Here is a photo with the tag and ribbon on my horses mane.
