Riding and Road Safety Photo Competition

18 Feb 2016

Be a Riding & Road Safety Cover star!

We are starting to update our material that supports the BHS Riding & Road Safety test. As part of this we are running a competition where the winner(s) will feature on the cover of our new material and runners up may feature within the book/booklets. With these photos we want to show true recreational riders, enjoying their horses while riding on the road but doing it safely…

We are looking for the following in the picture:

  • A group of two to four riders to include at least one junior rider (12-18yrs)
  • Riding horses on a road - please be safe whilst doing this!
  • Riders smiling and enjoying themselves
  • Riders should be wearing fluorescent and reflective clothing - the more the better!
  • Riders should be wearing correct standard hats, gloves, suitable footwear and clothing - nothing baggy or flapping.
  • The picture below is an example of the clothing that could be worn - different colours are fine.
  • Horses/ponies should be in good condition - including feet - and be wearing tack that fits

When taking your photos for the competition, please set your phone or camera to its highest quality setting (photos need to be minimum 1MB). Try to avoid very dark backgrounds.
