That is neato. I never do any night riding (scared of the dark hehe), but that is a great idea.

I usually only ride at night on moonlit nights, and that is more than enough light for my horse to see well; lights can really mess with your horse's night vision, so I would prefer not to use them, if I can. I don't ride on roads though, when I ride, so I don't need light, just my horse's eyes.

Those ones aren't big enough to interfere with a horse's night vision.
That's why I usually attach a few glow sticks to my saddle and breast plate because unlike other lights, they don't mess with it.
It's also really handy because I have to ride on roads to get to the trails I want to use.
Riding at night is great, I just let my horse pick his way through trails and he loves it. Sometimes it gets scary when I hear noises in the woods but that's half the fun lol!
Galloping on a big grass strip is fun too because you can't see anything so you have to rely on your horse not to kill you haha.

I have rode hundreds of miles in the dark and alot of it included road running late at night. I never used lights, a reflective tape on my back but no lights or nothing in front of me. I didn't want to mess with my night vision and any light in front of you can mess with it.
Horses see very well in the dark and negotiating deep cuts in the trial are no problem for a horse in total darkness.
I feel even that amount of light would mess with our vision.
Loved those moon lite rides.
