You can use anything. False flowers, to towels, fluorescent shirts, and like you said - paint. I would use any bright color that you can find! Red, blue green etc. If you Google show jumping pictures, you can get ideas about what colors are most commonly found, and what type of fillers are used.
There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky
