Safety First

Someone on the local horse forum posted this link today and I wanted to share it with FFF readers. Looks like a fine idea for anyone who rides on the road. I think I will be getting one in yellow.

Looks like a great idea, but I'd probably prefer yellow as well (ANYthing but PINK!). I do wonder if an approaching car would be able to read the smallish lettering....

BTW, DANGEROUS penguin, glad you enjoyed the barn building mini-blog (or are you sorry you asked?). It WAS a lot of work, and considering how much we did ourselves, NOT cheap! If you relocate, will you disassemble your shed and take it with?

Hope you are feeling better DP.

What neat items you found...I have wanted something to go on Wa and not rely upon my bright Orange vest only. The "Horse Wrap Around" is great! I will be getting that for next fall season forsure.
Maybe the road one, if I find a place to move to that I must ride on the roads...?

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Yes, my horses would try to tell a story of woeful hunger, but they're too pudgy to be pathetic.

I love the concept, but I'm not sure it would be very helpful around here on our roads, be because people drive so fast, that by the time they could read the back of the jacket, they'd already be on top of us. :P

That's a great idea. I'll have to check it out.

i love these - but in orange, yellow or green - i'm not a pink person :-\

when i trained with the BHS in scotland, we were required to wear high visibility vests and/or quarter sheets/polos/tail wraps while on the road. now i try to make a point of it if i'm going to be off the property - especially for the horse, since i'm paranoid about falling off and having my horse loose in traffic!
