Following on from the terrible tragedy in Oklahoma recently, we at Ride Alert feel as part of a disaster preparedness plan that it would be a good idea to always have a bridle tag on your horses halter, as well as on their bridle. This way if there is a tornado or other imminent disaster warning issued in your area, you can at least quickly slip the halter on your horse – which offers two-fold benefits: 1) the horse has a halter that first responders can use to catch or rescue your undoubtedly frightened animal with, and 2) the Ride Alert tag will enable them to quickly contact you, your Vet, or your Barn to help with injuries and relocation, via our 24/7 support Team.
From now, until the end of June, we are going to offer anyone who buys a Ride Alert membership with a bridle tag, an additional bridle tag (for their horse’s halter) absolutely FREE! Not only that, but for every Bridle Tag ordered, we will give an additional Tag free, i.e. buy 3 Tags and you will get another 3 Tags absolutely FREE!
This offer is good until the end of June 2013, while stocks last.
Ride smart, ride safe, Ride Alert.
“I think Ride Alert is going to be something that we all are going to not want to be without. Being able to have access to valuable life saving information can be critical in the case of an accident. We all know how dangerous horses can be, so having the peace of mind for your kids and family that they are signed up with Ride Alert can be an incredible asset. I grew up riding some rank horses, and often found myself out in places where I was alone or with strangers. Now that I’m a father myself, I think back a lot at some of the things I did and how it bothers me to think about my own kids doing those same things. I can’t protect them from everything, but I can equip them with Ride Alert!” – Kerry Kuhn, Clinician, TV show host, and Road to the Horse Wildcard for 2013/14
“I really like mine and always have it on me and my horses in case we part ways on a ride. Great idea for those of us who ride alone.” Phyllis McLarney – ACTHA and Ride Alert Member and fan of Kerry Kuhn.
Ride Alert, is a US based partner of the AlertID Group who have been providing identification support services in the UK for over 15 years. Ride Alert provides a simple online means to identify you and your horse and to record your medical and emergency contact details for later use by anyone who may need them in the event of an accident or illness. Ride-Alert has been developed to provide peace of mind for riders and their families. As well as providing visible identification products for riders, horses and property, there is also the added comfort of having a 24/7 Emergency Support Team on call and ready to assist in any emergency situation.
When you register with Ride-Alert you will be asked to fill in a detailed profile about yourself, which can include your contact, next of kin and medical information as well as a crisis plan to be carried out in emergencies. This information can be accessed by the Emergency Support Team through a unique ID number on your Ride-Alert products and relayed to the emergency services if necessary. This information could prove vital if you are involved in an accident, especially if you have any medical conditions or allergies to any medication. You can also include information about your horses, your barn or boarding location, contact details and who should be informed if your horse is found, as well as valuable property which can be identified by using our Helmet & Property Gel Badges.
