Rainlegs New Colour- Reflective

I have the original black with the reflective closure.

They have introduced a reflective pair that shines up in-car headlights. Ideally I don’t plan to be out riding if it’s that dark but on dull days the light grey will show up better than my current black, in combination with the other hi viz garments.



The weather is so changeable in an hour this will be a good addition to your wardrobe. These are great if you are likely to get caught in a light shower and as they are wind proof it keeps your legs that bit warmer.

Available from Amazon and some ebay sellers.


Treeless Saddles and Reflective Hi Viz

It’s that time of year when some of you will be thinking of high visibility. I know some of you use all year round, but it’s this time of year that I think to post about it 🙂

So what do you people use? Even if you are using a treed saddle I am still interested. What colours do you opt for, chequered or plain?

These days you can pretty much find anything in the common yellow, pink, orange and white. I can confirm that plain white also shows up for those of you who don’t want to wear hi viz. Just by wearing a white shirt and pale jodphurs can help instead of our usual dark colour choice.

For the rider you can buy hat bands, skull cap covers, tabards, jackets, trousers, gloves, glove covers, arm bands and whips.

For the horse, exercise sheets, leg wraps, tail wraps, bridle covers, neck straps, stirrup lights and ear bonnets.
