RIDE SAFE is a sports medical ID bracelet that is designed to be worn all day every day by equestrians on or off the farm working with or around horses. Ride Safe has worked hard to be a part of implementing rule changes that allow the bracelet to be worn in Eventing as well as the USPC (United States Pony Club). The rule change for Eventing was put in place in January of 2014 and the Pony Club announced their rule change in January of 2015. Ride Safe hopes to reach other sports in the future, but more importantly to educate everyone about being safe in whatever you do even it if does not involve horses!
When an emergency happens, time is critical and the RIDE SAFE bracelet will allow first responders, friends, and family immediate access to your secure medical history and contact information to facilitate rapid medical response and therapy. RIDE SAFE has taken many steps to ensure that your medical profile is extremely secure, but can still be easily accessed in a time of need.
Every Day, Every Ride, Every Time, RIDE SAFE!
Words from a First Responder !
“I truly hope that EVERY rider gets one of these!! As a First Responder, I’ve had the unfortunate occasion to tend to injured riders. In times of emergency where essential medical information is essential when providing Advanced Life Support, even parents can forget or provide inaccurate medical information while under the stress of seeing their child injured and unconscious. While not everyone might need a MedicAlert Bracelet, EVERY RIDER should wear a Ride Safe Bracelet. IT MIGHT JUST SAVE YOUR LIFE!!!”
