It is strongly recommended to wear reflective strip (for riders and horses) to be seen at night. A headlamp is also very useful to see and be seen.
Common courtesy is required even while on a horse. Go back to a slow walk and keep some distance when meeting riders coming the other way. Greeting and asking if you can pass the rider is always appreciated.
If you go on a walk with other riders, inform them that your horse can be unpredictable.
Riders shall comply with the traffic regulations of the country they are in.
Riders are invited to avoid any private properties and cultivated lands.
It is highly recommended to go on a walk with identifications, for both rider and horse.
Always carry a small amount of money, you never know what is going to happen. A map, a roadbook, and a charged cellphone are required. It is better if you can also take with you a string, a whistle, and a hoof pick. Make sure to carry with you a first-aid kit for yourself and your horse.
If you on your own, remain reachable by phone and prevent other persons that you are going on a ride alone and inform them of your route.
