Are you searching for a signature color for your Western wear that will help you and your horse stand out in a crowd?
Then consider adding a touch of sunshine orange to your Western wear and tack room. Orange is a bright, fun hue that looks great against most horse coat colors, especially black or white.
Another reason why I personally like orange? Because it’s a color known for its high visibility. And when you’re riding, there are times when it’s important for you and your horse to be seen. For example, my favorite season for trail riding is the fall. I just love meandering through the woods on my horse, taking in the beauty of the autumn colors. However, there is one major drawback to trail riding in the fall. Where I live, it’s the beginning of deer hunting season. So, during this time, I never hit the trails without at least a touch of blazing orange to alert hunters that I am not a deer.
Visibility is also important if you have to ride your horse alongside or across busy roads. If you have a dark horse, a driver may not see you if you’re riding on a gloomy evening or if it’s raining. But if you or your horse is wearing a bright pop of orange, a driver will have a better chance of catching sight of you in time to avoid a tragic accident.
The following are several fun and cool ways to add that touch of sunshine orange to your Western wear outfit and/or tack room.

Willit Women’s UPF 50+ Sun Protection Hoodie Shirt Long Sleeve
If you’re still riding or doing your barn chores in your old cotton t-shirts, it’s time for a change. Cotton absorbs sweat and allows it to sit against your skin. In contrast, this hoodie is crafted from a breathable fabric that has been designed to wick the sweat away from your skin. The sweat then moves to the surface of the fabric, where it evaporates. This will keep you feeling cooler and drier on hot days. This shirt also has several features to shield your skin from the sun’s damaging rays, including long sleeves and a hoodie. And it’s made from a fabric that is rated UPF 50+ — which means that it will give you protection from 98 percent of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays.
- Flat lock seams and no care tag on collar for more comfort
- Machine washable
- Thumbholes on sleeves to keep them in place
- Quick drying fabric
