Ensure Proper Identification with Ultralite Clip-on ID Tag
This safety aid also works well clipped to your saddle or own belt loop! Ensure both you and your equine friend always have identification attached in case of an emergency.
No. The Ultralite is designed to be safe for the horse faced with a fire situation. The I.C.E. form itself is made of a Calfire rated flame-resistant material. The nylon strap melts at between 419º and 430º. The aluminum carabiner clip’s melting point is over 1200 °. If the mane/tail hair is exposed to 370º or higher, the hair will disintegrate. Because the mane/tail hair at those temperatures becomes a fuel, Ultralite will drop to the ground well before any of its components would begin to distort. At temps up to 370º, Ultralite is still providing safe, secure identification. Ultralite will not contribute to fueling a fire while it is still attached to the animal. If the animal is exposed to 300º+ temperatures, he is unfortunately already in grave danger with burns and/or smoke inhalation.
Sarah Rinne, executive director of NATRC (North American Trail Ride Conference), is competing in 16 rides during 2017. She's been using UltraLite on every ride in Tate's braid since March 3rd. In Sarah's opinion: "It's perfect!"
This product is awesome! Mine have stayed in place for 8 weeks now. My four horses wear them full time in the summer in case of fires! ~Dawn~
"I got the ManeStay for hurricanes or camping, and I also got the lightweight ones (UltraLite) to put on my saddles. Had an incident last week when my horse lost his footing and we went down. I couldn't keep hold of the reins and as he ran off (luckily to a nice bush to eat), I thought to myself, this is why I ordered my I.C.E. products." ~ Heidi~
What is the difference between ManeStay and UltraLite I.C.E. Tags?
How to Attach UltraLite to the Mane
- Complete the emergency contact information using an ultra-fine point Sharpie® ensuring your critical contact info will be permanent and waterproof.
- Create a braid ten (10) or more inches from the horse's ears (so it doesn't touch the ears when his head is down), but still in the upper 1/3 of his mane.
- Secure the braid with an elastic band/ponytail holder; these last longer than rubber bands. If using rubber bands, use at least 2.
- Insert/hook carabiner through the top portion of the braid.
- Inspect daily for long term use.
