The story of Rider Eye
Having had a very 'horsey' childhood with lots of ponies and culminating in taking my BHSAI (and failing my Pony Club A Test - I fell off), life went in another direction and I went to work in London. Having got married and come back to the country I started riding again after a break of about 20 years. Almost the first thing I noticed how much faster vehicles were travelling, and I decided to try and do something about it.
Rider Eye is the result with its specialist equestrian high viz.
It started with a 'speed camera' tabard in flo yellow, pink, or orange - printed back and front and designed to be read at 20 metres and this was so successful that the range has expanded. I test all the products first myself and they get added to quite often. My most recent addition has been a Winter Hatband with LED lights - these have sold out several times and the feedback has been fantastic.
For your horse there are hi viz leg bands in two sizes and a hi viz fully adjustable neckstrap.
All our products are British designed and made in the UK.
Why Rider Eye donates to Hannah's Willberry Wonderpony Charity.
My daughter knew Hannah online - they were a similar age - and so I got to know all about her little Willberry pony which her show jump trainer had given her. Hannah set up Hannah's Wilberry Wonderpony Charity when she was ill as she wanted it to carry on where she, sadly, had to leave off. The charity aims to support equine related wishes and valuable research towards finding a cure for Osteosarcoma which claimed Hannah's short life.
In order to raise money I decided to do something for the charity so when our marvellous pony, Foxy, came back from loan, (having hardly ridden for years never mind leaving the ground), I decided to do the Wobbleberry Challenge which is for people who have never evented before to complete a BE80. (I have to say I was totally terrified most of the time and did not enjoy any of it until I was safely back at the box!) But it did raise quite a lot of money so I decided to continue, somewhat more safely, by contributing from Rider Eye.
So, that is why a proportion of all Rider Eye sales every month go towards the vital work carried out by the charity. To learn more about the charity visit www.willberrywonderpony.org
