I knew the horses I trimmed were safe, but I passed four horses being ridden on the road (not all together) and I am very sad to say there was not one little piece of hi viz amongst the lot of them!
Can I please plead to all riders, whether on or off the road, please wear hi viz all year round!!
It can give a driver a split second more time to see you and act accordingly or help to find both you or your horse
should you be thrown. Please think about your own protection and protecting your animal. It doesn't cost much and
could literally save your life or that of your horse!
Even on a bright sunny day, you in normal clothes and every colour of horse can easily be camouflaged in shadows or
dappled shade alongside the road and not be seen until the last minute by anyone else using the road.
Please be careful out there by using hi viz for the both of you.
Happy riding but please stay safe!
