View Full Version : Breast Collar - glow in the dark
Oct. 3, 2009, 12:51 AM
I'm buying my horse a new breast collar soon, to use with his Barefoot cheyenne treeless saddle. I've been looking at the Zilco breast collars at actionridertack.com for awhile, and I swear the last time I looked, there was a 'glow in the dark' or 'reflective at night' option among the many colors.
Looking now, I can't find anything like that, although a review over on horsetackreview.com mentions this color choice. Does anyone know what happened to them, or another place I could buy one?

You could contact actionrider directly and see if they still carry them, or would be able to get one for you. The last time I was on their site, they did have a glow material cavesson.
Or, just do an overall search on the web to see if it's something that Zilco still manufactures.

If it doesn't have to be that specific brand, you can order a glow in the dark overlay on a custom breastplate from Running Bear. It's called "Glo Belt"

they make both reflective AND glow...and the neat thing about their glow...it works off body/sun/any source heat too, so needs no "light" to charge it. THey make really nice quality tack.

Although they dont offer the glow overlay on their breastcollars, they do on a lot of their other tack and might be able to do a glow breastcollar if you ask...their stuff looks nice and affordable.

Try Hought Tack. They have beautiful products, and I think Zilco quit making the glow belt style. About a year ago, all the endurance shops had their glow belt products on closeout sale and I haven't seen much in that line since.

I was searching for a way to buy glo-belt material but saw the question about glo-belt tack. In Jan. I bought a britchen with glo belt overlay from Margaret at www. madtack.net and she custom made it for me since I sometimes ride my mule at night. I also have glo-belt overlays on both the mule and horse halter bridle, breast plate and cruppers from her. That stuff is great and mysterious how it works! haha Good luck.
