Safety orange for turnout during hunting season?
Our horses are currently pastured at the neighbor's down the road. When we get them to our property, they will have access to some wooded areas. Our property borders a huge game reserve which will be full of hunters this fall. Now, in theory there shouldn't be any hunters on our land other than my husband or friends who are aware of our horses. My husband says I don't need to worry about it, but I would like to get some hunter orange on them - at least for modern gun season when there are a lot more hunters out (he won't let me go jogging without hunter orange, even on the road, during the season). I've seen suggestions for things to put on them for trail rides during hunting season, but I need stuff I can put on them while they are loose. I haven't put turnout sheets on them before and they don't seem like a good idea in the woods. Any suggestions - cheaper of course is better, but I don't mind spending money on stuff if it will keep them safe.
