Hi-Viz gear – a MUST ALL YEAR-ROUND

Hi-viz gear is a must all year-round. In the summer, the bright lights cast shadows that, horse and rider can often be lost in creating poor visibility for motorists. In spring and autumn the low sun shining on wet roads makes it difficult for driver to see what’s directly ahead. With less in the way of daylight hours in the winter horses and riders are caught out riding in poor light, they may not set off in the dark but often can return to the stable yard.

There are so many more reasons why hi-viz gear isn’t just important in the winter. Weather conditions change dramatically from one day to the next especially in the UK. A good rule of thumb to go buy is; hacking out on the road? then wear hi-viz, simple. Make sure you get your chosen gear is in good working order, don’t be caught out, give motorists as much of a chance to see you as you can….
