Dressage letters
 
Has anyone else notices they're stupidly expensive?
I want to come up with a cheap way of lettering my arena. It's very makeshift made of pickets and white poly rope.
It's full size 60x20m so need the larger letter sets. The arena is in the middle of a paddock so needs to be horses age even outside!
How can I put letters up without spending a fortune?

I used to have rather large sheets of watercolor paper (maybe 2'x1' if I remember right) that I don't think were very expensive...could you possibly get something like that, write your letters down, and get them laminated?

Hahaha we chalked the letters onto our arena.

You couls make some out of wood. Either just one piece to hang up or two pieces to stand up. You can just get a wood burner for like 20 bucks!

They are without a doubt the most over priced item ever. It won't take much to make them on your own. Even of you take a piece of foam board, cut it down to size, and buy the over sized sticker letters at your local hard ware store, it works just fine.

I just got a piece of pressure treated wood, cut and painted them myself...

Buy paper, print or write letters on the paper, seal both sides with clear contact paper, a report cover or laminate, post and enjoy!

Thats only for a 40x20m arena. There are extra letters for a 60m arena.

Personaly I have used upturned buckets in the past. Remove the handles, turn upside down. Paint letters on them. Voila dressage letters
