HI-VIS RULES OK
Sir — Regarding Connie Wendes’ letter about hi-vis clothing and training horses for road riding
(29 June), my luminous jacket has an L-plate on the back and the wording “Slow, thank you”.
Upon seeing an L-plate, I think drivers perceive either the horse or rider to be a novice. The fact this is not the case is irrelevant as long as they slow down and give us a wide berth. I thank them and my experiences are mainly positive.
But there are many who don’t wear hi-vis and aren’t courteous. This tars the rest of us with the same brush and puts us in danger of being perceived as “in the way”. Amanda Rutherford
