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.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.
Well since I don't need a regular breast collar, I'm not too sure.How is the breastcollar itself?
I mean, it's very cool that it is visible at night. . .but how well does it do the job a breastcollar is actually supposed to do?
Most of the riding I do involves a lot of climbing and descending hills, so I prefer to always use a breastcollar. To me, it would make no sense to have a breastcollar that wouldn't really hold up well enough to do what a breastcollar is designed for. I'd rather buy a well-made piece of equipment, and add my own lighting or reflective material at a later time if needed.Well since I don't need a regular breast collar, I'm not too sure.
But I'd imagine it wouldn't be too effective if you actually needed to use one, just because it's a metal ring in the middle attaching the three straps together. Or would it be?
