Even in bright Sunlight you may not be as visible to car drivers as you think!. Many car drivers fail to see the horse and rider because they blend into the earthy colours around them, or the driver is dazzled by sunlight when you are riding in the shade.
However, are riders doing all they can to get themselves noticed during the day?
Sadly, only 1.5 riders out of 10 consistently use any form of high vis products during the bright daylight hours. Many people believing that it is just for adverse weather or night time use.
The range consists of products designed to catch the drivers attention from all angles, but probably the 2 most important items to start the range are the Leg Bands and Tail Band. The Tail Band is a brand new design which stays up during exercise without the aid of a rug.
The British Horse Society has been involved with development and testing, and rider interest at the recent launch at Burghley was tremendous. ?We had lots of very complimentary comments from everyone who saw our range and made orders. We have had requests and enquiries from many areas such as the mounted Police Force to District Councils, and we are delighted by the response from riders in general.
The range comes in 5 Day-Glo colours including Pink and Orange. It is available on a mix and match basis through mail order only at the moment. For a leaflet, please call 01767 600778 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit the website www.v-bandz.com
