It’s so nice to be complimented and thanked for sharing my equestrian product knowledge with others. I posted a link on my FB to the RideSafe bracelet website and had a friend ask me some questions. Then I got a comment on my post by the founder/creator of RIdeSafe saying I made his day by giving such great answers and feedback!
In case you guys weren’t aware, starting April 1st it will be legal to use a RideSafe (or possibly other brands of emergency information bracelet, waiting for clarification from USEA/USEF still) bracelets in the jumping phases of eventing instead of the traditional armband that holds a paper copy of your medical information.
The benefits of a RideSafe, or similar brand, bracelet are many. They are hypoallergenic silicone material with your name, emergency contact information, and the RideSafe URL (www.teamridesafe.com) at the bottom. On the back of the metal plate with this information is your unique ID code. Using your last name and ID, paramedics can access all your current medical information and injury history quickly and easily. No more having to decipher bad handwriting, water-stained forms, or worry about not having up-to-date information. RideSafe bracelets are also super easy to wear on a daily basis too so in the event of an emergency during your daily riding, your information is available to the medics.
Also, they come in a huge range of colors and you can purchase a couple so you have a back up if needed. Your original bracelet is $35 with a small annual fee of $3 to keep your records up-to-date and available on their database.

I really would like to have one of these before show season starts up again….
