BETA Summer of Safety
With so many of the riding public paying more attention than ever before to matters of safety, we felt it the ideal time to broaden our campaign to cover areas that we haven’t focused on before, as well as the usual suspect of hats and body protectors.
The focus of the campaign will be on understanding how products work to improve safety, their care, maintenance and what goes into them to make riders and their horses safe.
The products being covered are much wider than before, offering members who may have not had the chance to be involved, to engage with the campaign which will be largely social medial in nature.
As well as using our usual Social platforms we will also be featuring video clips, Lives and podcasts to spread the messages.
We will be engaging with all of the disciplines and member bodies to spread our messages wider and have agreement with the BHS to work with them on road safety.
