Be Safe, Be Seen On Your Horse This Winter December 12 2017
High visibility and reflective clothing make you and your horse more obvious to other road users. There are lots of different options available but did you know where you wear your high viz can make a difference?
Biomotion works by where you put your high viz. Retro reflective markers positioned on the moveable joints as well as the torso can provide highly significant improvements in visibility. This is due to it creating a sensation of "biological motion". Drivers can quickly recognize what is in front of them and act accordingly.
Make you and your horse as BIG as possible is the best way to be seen.
Horses legs are the best way to grab drivers attention as they are always moving, leg/arm bands on your ankles are also a good idea to show the driver how wide you both are. Helping the driver give you a safe distance when passing.
A minimum of a tabard and or rug should be warn and a hat band would be good as it tells the driver how high you are, giving them a full size they need to pass safely.
