Manufacturer: Nite Ize
Model: Lighted Reins (a.k.a. dog leash), lighted hands free collar (a.k.a. lighted dog collar)
Category: Barn and Stable Misc

Purchase: I got these from the bargain bin at our Commissary, but I am sure they are available in pet stores and online.

Likes: Nite Ize and PolyBrite make them, but it is the idea for safety, not the product here that counts. I have to lead my horses over a HUGE and busy street at night, and I bought 2 large size illuminated dog collars (LED) for each horse and snapped their ends together. Two large size dog collars make one perfect size horse collar. I lead the horses by their halters, although the collars have rings for a lead. The LED flashes or stays constant when you push a small button, so you are visible from FAR away, plus the collars have yellow reflective material so headlights make them gleam as well. The illuminated leashes make great reins (you need 2 to make a set), and the snap on LED reflective arm bands for night time jogging make great quick bands for the horese's legs. These are better than the 'just reflective" products sold for horses, as by the time the horse gets into headlights to "reflect", it is too late. If the horse is "lit", drivers in cars see this from farther away and slow down.

Dislikes: I started out trying the nylon dog collars (same material as a flat nylon horse halter) with the LED inside, but they are not as visible as the reflective type with the LED inside as well. I wish someone would make these FOR horses, so you could lead off of them (I think the plastic clips would break if the horse bolted), or put this feature into a halter. The reins are OK for light riding, but if you are a "mouth yanker" they may not be "hard" enough for you. Our horses neck rein, so we've not worried about the "strength" of the leash clip or the actual fabric. The "reins" just look SMASHING at night, and help keep you and your horse safe (and stylish).

Quality: Quality is made for dogs, not horses - but better than nothing!

Summary: There were two horses killed this Summer at the crossing by our stables - speeding cars didn't give the horses a chance. They had broken away while being lead in from the pasture. I have to walk my horses here twice a day (early morning and night) and I want them to be SEEN whether they are on lead or break away. The batteries for the LED lst something like 10,000 hours, so I figure even if the horses break away while I am leading them home we will be able to find them in the dark! The reins are SO fun, the collars are SO visible. People stop me all the time and ask where I got the items, they can't seem to believe it is "dog stuff". I can't tell you HOW cars slow down, and how many people have stopped to thank me for having the horses be visible. Why doesn't someone make these FOR horses?
