However experienced and proficient a rider you are, there’s always the chance that you could fall off and suffer a serious injury, and if you’re alone when that happens, you could be in serious trouble.
In fact, an alarmingly high proportion (around 50%!) of people who fall off their horses suffer an incapacitating injury that would prevent them from getting back to safety, or using their phone to call for emergency assistance.

“My horse got ‘spooked’, threw me and bolted. When I came round I was already in the ambulance. Because of Ridersmate my wife was able to direct the emergency services to where I was laying on the side of the trail.”

How Ridersmate Works
Operating the Ridersmate safety features couldn't be simpler — the unit attaches easily to your ride, with a detachable jack plug that tethers to your belt loop or clothing.
Should you fall off your ride, the jack plug will detach itself from the Ridersmate unit, automatically sending out an emergency message to your chosen contacts. To cancel the response, you can simply reattach the jack plug to the unit, which will send a second message.
Quick & Easy Setup
Ridersmate is designed with quick and easy setup in mind, and all the phone numbers and emergency contacts can be configured and changed through a few simple text messages. You'll never need to plug Ridersmate into a computer, or mess around with the settings when on the go.
Foolproof Safety & Backup
No one wants their loved ones worrying unnecessarily – which is why Ridersmate features a number of built-in backups to maximise safety, whilst minimising the risk of false alarms, including:
- Emergency SOS button – for manual activation
- Easy cancelling – simply reattach Ridersmate, and it sends a message to loved ones letting them know you're ok
- Automatic multiple accident messaging – two messages sent 1 minute apart to help guarantee a response
- Non-emergency messaging – request loved ones aid in a non-emergency situation
Ridersmate – for when every second counts…
The second you fall off your ride and suffer a serious injury, the clock starts ticking. Now, it's a race against time to provide you with the expert, specialist medical care you need.
It's what's known as 'The Golden Hour' – that crucial first 60 minutes after an accident when it's absolutely vital that you receive effective treatment. Failure to receive treatment inside this hour can be disastrous, significantly impacting on your likely survival rate and recovery outcome.
When you fall off, Ridersmate springs into action (here's how it works). You can relax, safe in the knowledge that your loved ones know exactly where you are, and that medical experts are on their way to help you as quickly as possible.
