Horse riding has long been recognized as an activity that aesthetically merges people, their animal companions and nature. In addition to the exercise, riders enjoy mountain air and incredible scenery with their friends, family and equine friends.
Surprisingly there are some pretty cool tech devices out there that will help keep our riding community safe and accentuate their next ride.
The Tail Lights Pro Safety System is a high-tech safety system for horse back riders. Every year tragically thousands of horses and their riders are injured or killed as a result of collisions with vehicles.
The Tail Lights Pro simply attaches onto a horses breast collar. The rider can turn on the LED lights through the handheld remote. Available in 6 distinct (Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, Pink-Purple, White) colors which also can flash in a variety of color patterns, these lights will ensure that both horse and rider can be seen in day and night. The Tail Lights Pro runs on a rechargeable battery system. The battery life is 23.5 hours, which will ensure you are covered on short and long rides.
