Two years ago I got a beautiful SmartPak fleece quarter sheet for my horse. It is so pretty and it gets cold here so useful too… however, it shocks her!
Any ideas to get my fleece quarter sheet to stop shocking her? I tried rubbing a dryer sheet on both her hind end and the sheet and she’s still getting shocked when we ride. It made for a very interesting trail ride the other day.
Have you tried spraying her and the pad with hair spray? Sometimes that works!! Another trick is to fill a spray bottle with a 1/4 of Downey, and the rest in water, shake well, and spray the pad before riding. Hope this helps.
You can spray it with static guard(usually sold in laundry detergent aisle)…it smells bad so spray outside and let dry….I use it on the inside of my blankets because my horses get zapped from them…hope it helps
A few natural methods – try attaching a few safety pins around the inside edge of the sheet. Make sure they’re in places where they will touch her skin but not rub excessively. They help to ground the static before they it can cause a zap. Also, when you wash the sheet, use 1/2 cup of vinegar in the fabric softener tray. Line dry, never put it in the dryer. Good luck!
