The clocks have gone back an hour, which signals the end of British Summer time. And while you may have gained an extra hour in bed, it marks the start of shorter daylight hours, darker afternoons, colder temperatures and consistently more rain and wind.
With this in mind, exercising your dogs and horses over the next six months is often done in low-light conditions either before or after work. To keep your animals, and yourself, safe during these low-light periods, it’s essential you stay highly visible to road users and while walking in parks or on pavements.
ArdMoor has new stock of safety wear for animals and humans – weatherproof, hi-vis clothing for you and for your horse and dog, waterproof jackets and warm padded gilets with reflective strips, and hi-vis safety harnesses that will alert any motorist and pedestrian to your presence whether riding or exercising your dog.
