I found the little mini cones that usually sell for about $7.00 in the mini catalogs at Walmart packed up with a tennis size ball...2 to a pack for less than $5.00. It was in the kiddie toy section of the store. Also someone had mentioned a while back that you can find them in the dollar stores as well.
It was in a package like say a badminton set? But it had a little tennis type of ball if I remember correctly inside with it. I think you set the ball on top of the cone and then hit it back and forth. Don't remember what the name of the game was tho.
I purchased 4 of the 6 inch size or maybe 8 inch, for 7.00 at big 5 sporting goods. Only because walmart was out of them. They had two kinds one was slotted, the other was solid. Of course they called them soccer cones but they work for me
This forum ROCKS! I jumped on the phone to all our local dollar stores and GUESS WHAT? The one 10 minutes from me HAD THEM!
7" tall (4) PACK 1.00 they have holes in the bottom to mount them on wood (I already have the wood cut the right size at home left over from stall making 8"X8"X2"tall)
I am going to cut slits in the tops of them (idea from website littlesteppers posted) to slide plexiglass squares with dressage letters stenciled on them. I could probably make them 5"x5" so overall height will be 14" tall.
I cannot believe this a 14" cone with letters for under .50.
