This waistcoat can be used on its own or a small clip on camera can also be attached to it on either the front or back. This means that you have the choice to record the vehicles coming up behind you or those coming towards you. The words and camera icon warn the approaching driver that they are being filmed and therefore help to encourage better driving past the horse and rider. The camera we have chosen to offer to riders to accompany the waistcoat is the VEHO Muvi HD10 Camera. The waistcoat can be adjusted to fit over a summer T shirt or a body protector. It has a strong zip fastening at the front together with a large front zip pocket. It is available in 3 sizes and 3 colours. The teen/small adult size is around a ladies 8-10. The med/large is around 12-16 and the XL around 18-20. We use quality Reflexite tape on all our rider products.

- If you are not involved in an accident but are on the end of a dangerous driver or one which passes you and your horse in a completely inappropriate and unsafe manner then the camera can be used catch this driving and their number plate. You are then able to visit you local Police to show them this footage and complain about the driver. They in turn can use this footage to contact the driver about their lack of appropriate driving skills. Hanna Campbell fom the Horse Solicitor has kindly comfirmed:
"The footage should be handed over to the police. In some cases the police may wish to prosecute. If the police fail to bring charges or fail to discuss the incident with the individual that's been filmed, a complaint can be made if the footage demonstrates driving that would constitute an offense such as driving without due care and attention or dangerous driving for example."
