You may not always feel hi-vis is necessary, especially now the days are longer and the weather is better, but making the effort can mean the difference between life or death.
Wearing hi-vis gives vehicle drivers three seconds of extra reaction time. Although there's currently no law to ensure you and your horse wear hi-vis we'd always recommend you do, not just because drivers will see you sooner, but you'll be seen when you ride off-road too.
Here's a selection of hi-vis wear for your horse to wear that suitable for all year round.
HyVIZ bridle set
This three-piece set fits neatly onto your bridle. Fluorescent with bright silver retro-reflective tape for additional safety and clear visibility.
HyVIZ Leg Bands
These bands fit neatly around your horse's legs or over boots. Fluorescent with silver retro-reflective tape for safety. These durable leg bands have a mesh lining to prevent your horse getting hot, and fasten with two strong velcro straps.
Golly Galoshes, not only keep your horse’s legs and boots clean and dry but their reflective and fluorescent versions, also offer great visibility when out hacking.
Because Golly Galoshes are breathable, waterproof they can be worn comfortably over your horse's boots or on their own.
