View Full Version : Black Rain Sheet
Apr. 2, 2012, 11:35 AM
My barn's colors are black and red. I was thinking about buying a black rain sheet and embroidering my name in red.
Question is - Will it look like I put my poor horsey in a trash bag?
I'm looking to spend about $100, any recommendations appreciated. Obv the clothes horse would be amazing, but they're out of my price range.

No, I don't think so. :) Do you mean like Rambo Mack-in-the-sack Rain Sheets? http://www.horsetackco.com/horseware-rambo-mack-in-a-sack-rain-sheet.html
I have 3 of these I've used once. Too bad they aren't black like you wanted.

If your looking for an actual turnout sheet, Schneiders Vtek Marathon comes in black and red. It's a bit more than you were wanting to spend but not too bad. $149.95 for the sheet.

Bucas Irish T/O (http://www.bucas.com/products/turnout-rugs/irish/) runs just over $100, the black with gold trim is very nice looking.
Glue on applique won't affect water proofness, any stitching may (though you can use sealer afterwards).

Thanks guys, I was thinking more of a show rain sheet versus a turnout.

I worked for a barn that had black and yellow as the barn colors. I never thought it looked like a trash bag! But then I was used to everything being those colors. Along as you get the trim in red it should look fine.

I just got one of these to use at shows when we have to walk back and forth from the barns & rings in the rain (I love being in charge of our club's year end awards and can pick out my own award!!). I also chose a black one for someone else and did silver lettering/embroidery on it and liked it in that color. To me, they just look like a nylon sheet:
They also have this one, which also comes in an insulated version:
I think the black with red will look sharp!

I have one of the unlined rainsheets from Saratoga Horseworks:
The only thing I don't like about it is that the inside sweats when it's warm out--the new cotton lined ones might be worth a try!
Custom colors for a non custom price--very good quality for the $$$.
