Equi-Flector Essentials – Stay Safe With Shires!

Equi-Flector Essentials – Stay Safe With Shires!

Here in the UK there are more than 31 million cars on the road, not to mention vans, lorries and cyclists! Unsurprisingly, these numbers are ever increasing. As riders, this means we're encountering more and more traffic while out hacking on our horses. With this in mind, it's really important that we take measures to stay safe! Any time we take our horses off their yard, the most important thing we can do is to make sure we can't be missed!

Equi-Flector Essentials - Stay Safe With Shires!

While it might sound almost impossible to miss a slow moving 500kg animal, it's not quite that simple! Low lights, bad weather, shadows and blind bends can all make it tricky. Whether we're being approached by a car, pedestrian or cyclist, they can't pass safely if they don't know we're there until it's too late! Sadly, there's not a lot any of us can do to improve the weather, roads or daylight hours. However, we can still take matters into our own hands with the specially designed Shires Equi-Flector Collection!

When it comes to hi-vis, it really is a case of the more the better! Each item is designed to highlight a different part of you or your horse. By covering all the key area's we make ourselves not only easy to spot but easy to identify, helping to distinguish us from dog walkers and cyclists. Offering head to hoof (and foot) protection, take a look at the full Equi-Flector range...
