Hi-Viz Horse Rider Gear Guide for Equestrians

With a plethora of Hi-Viz horse rider gear available for equestrians, we’ve rounded up a selection of what caught our eye for your spring, summer, autumn and winter wardrobe.

As riders, we must equip ourselves, and our horses, with adequate hi-viz riding gear before we step foot and hoof off the yard.

Although there is no law for wearing this type of clothing on the road, at the very minimum, horse and rider should be wearing a piece of hi-viz and reflective clothing. The wearing of such should also be extended to anyone who accompanies us when riding out and about.
