a former Newmarket racehorse rider says, “Anklelite is
perfect for on road riding, it is so light
weight you would not know you have it on and the light
is just right for ensuring that you are seen but
that horses are not bothered. I use
Anklelite on my young horses as well as my more
experienced Arabs. Anklelite is essential for
all horseriders both young and young at heart.”
Be Seen Further Away
Super-lightweight does not really adequately describe the “wow” moment when someone picks up
Anklelite / Armlite for the very first time. By eliminating batteries and the use
materials (particularly the new elasticated Velcro)
the weight of Anklelite / Armlite has been
reduced to that of a box of matches!
A unique and innovative battery free, eco-friendly
lighting product worn around the ankle, boot or on the
arm and keeps horse riders safe and seen on the roads, bridleways and
in the countryside.
Ankelite is an ultra lightweight (it weights 85gms about
the same as a box of matches!) ankle, boot and arm
lighting system, used in the Summer and Winter for
riding in daylight on tree covered lanes, when cloud shadows change
the light and at dawn or dusk. The battery free
lighting system is designed to store and dispense light in all
directions, without affecting the horse or rider, for 6
hours (when set to flashing
light mode) from each full
charge of light (solar) energy, and to recharge from both
ordinary household light as well as from natural sun or
overcast light. The unit can function in both flashing
or constant light modes and is often worn on the arm
when leading a horse.
Anklelite with adjustable elasticated straps fits all sizes and can
be worn with or without trousers, fitting securely over
Anklelite provides super-bright 360
degree lighting without the need for batteries.
truly unique thing about these lights is that in
ambient light (cloud cover, shadows from
trees/buildings, changeable light - and let's face it, we
get enough of these types of light) they work differently
from other lights - they actually appear to get brighter
the further away from them you are. Users need to
see this to believe it but there are many reviews by
equestrian magazines stating this.
If your light
is brightest from a few feet away and then appears to
dim as you move away from it in ambient light then people see
you best from very close up - and that's simply too late!
can see you from further away then you are much safer.
Enhancing hi viz wear and at the perfect height for car
windscreens, a large
unique floodlight module is attached to elasticated straps that fit
comfortably around riding trousers, jodhpurs or riding
boots at ankle height, calf or on the arm with high visibility reflective
strips on both sides as an additional feature. The
lights shine brightly from every angle so horse riders
will be seen clearly by Pedestrians, motorists and others
at any time of day. The lights can be turned on and off and set to
different modes – flashing, constant or off.

flashing lights as they are positioned well away from
the line of sight, flash at an appropriate rate and
are dim to the eye close up.
Anklelite’s robust design and versatility enables it to
be also used as an arm light on the upper or lower arm. The Anklelite
is small enough for a horse rider to roll
up and put in their jacket pocket or rucksack while
preparing to ride.
600 million batteries (22,000 tonnes) are being disposed of
and creating an environmental hazard in the UK (source DEFRA) every year, Anklelite is an eco-friendly product
that charges both in direct sunlight and in artificial
light so it is ideal for charging at the office or just popping on the windowsill for a few hours
at home. It provides over six hours of super-bright
light from a full charge. In addition, the saving on
replacement batteries alone means that Anklelite enjoys
a cost payback as well as helping save the environment.

Simple to put on and comfortable to wear, Anklelite is
maintenance free and ensures that horse riders can ride

made from recycled cardboard.
