Ugh! Horsehair on clothes!

I have a serious problem with horsehair on my riding clothes. My lesson horse is a chestnut overo, and that means white hairs. Her left shoulder, where I usually pet her, is absolutely white. And, because Spring is coming, she's shedding like a madman. After my lesson, I am completely covered in tiny white hairs! Usually, I'll throw my coat, breeches and gloves into the wash, but lately the hairs haven't been coming out as good as they did. Does anyone have any tips for getting these annoying little hairs off my riding clothes, before they spread to my regular ones? (I store riding clothes and regular clothes together... probably should stop doing that!)

Try a fleece vest while you ride it will collect all the horse hair then just take it off. along with all the horse hair.

Ok really I wouldn't do that but it would be funny

I don't see the problem.

If I am not covered in horse hair, I am covered in dog or cat hair. Shrugs.

Exactly! I don't bother to clean mine off - except when I get yelled at for not doing it. Lol

I have a car with an all black cloth interior and a white horse that's as furry as a llama. At this point it adds color to my darker clothing.

That just means you are doing it right.

This time of year a horsehair sandwich seems the norm!

I can truthfully say, hand on heart, cross my heart and hope to die, that I have never bothered about hair on my clothes - wouldn't seem right without them.
