So bright it GLOWS

I live in a heavily hunted area, right next to a state park and decided that I would not only wear a bright orange vest.. But if I have to, my horse has to as well.

So I got this nifty Abetta set in the brightest orange that clashes with his copper coat SO BADLY. It's so bright, it's awesome. These were taken when I was fitting it, the throat latch is a little too tight for my liking so may have to punch another hole in it.

This is Drifter, my 4 year old Quarter horse Cross.

On a side note, I bought a rope halter for my gray yearling and it happened to come in bright orange too by accident. Gotta get a picture.

I have a neon orange headstall..I don't live in a hunting area, but I still like it! All my horses that it fits are greys, so it looks awesome!

Thanks for the welcome, and thanks guys! Here's the yearling in his new rope halter. It looks pink in the picture but it's really bright, bright orange.
