HorseRiderSOS designed to make hacking and handling horses safer, when working alone, was the idea of specialist trainer of young and problem horses Michael Peace.

“I am probably more aware of the dangers of working with horses than anyone,” says Michael Peace. “After all, many of the horses who come to me for schooling have very serious behavioural problems. Like most riders, there are times when I am the only one at the yard and while I am very careful to keep safety my priority, accidents can and do happen. One of my clients fell off her horse miles from home and was unconscious for over an hour…worst of all, nobody knew she’d even fallen off! Luckily some hikers found her and were able to call for help, but now she always uses HorseRiderSoS.”

Simple to use, you just activate the app before heading off on your hack or when you’re working with your horse and there’s no one around.

Your activity is monitored in ‘tracking mode’ as you ride or move around, and in the event of you becoming unseated, injured or unconscious, the app recognises when no movement is felt for a set time and will enter ‘Alert mode’ and send a message to your chosen ‘Buddy’ with your location, by text, email. Once ‘Alert Mode’ has been activated, the rider is notified and is then able to over-ride the system with a small movement if it’s not a genuine emergency.

Thanks to the GPS capability of your smart-phone, once an alert has been triggered, your exact position can be detected so that you can be found without delay.

We're working on adding support for more countries. Thank you for your support and patience.

I guess they are still underfunded

I tried two tests of this app and both failed to contact my designated person. I waited 5 minutes the first time and 10 minutes the second time.

The response from 2 years ago must hold true. Underfunding must be hampering the functionality of this app. I will be looking elsewhere.

Had high hopes.

Downloaded and proceeded to go through the system until I let it send an emergency alert to my contact person and they NEVER received the alert !!! Very upsetting.
Don’t waste your time. Download Huufe instead their system works better. Now here’s hoping I get a refund!!

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your feedback. We have had a few problems in the past with this and we were a bit underfunded to keep the app working, though recently we’ve done lots of updates fixing bugs that the app has had. Everything now works as it should. Sorry for the inconvenience and hope you will give us another shot. If you have any questions or are looking for a refund feel free to get in contact at
Hope this helps.

Doesn't work in U.S.

Bought this app but it doesn't work in the U.S. After I purchased it I saw a note at the very bottom saying it only works in the UK. My bad for not reading all the way down but they should have made that clearer

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your feedback.
The app now works anywhere in the world with all phone numbers, after a few recent updates fixing bugs. Hope you will give it another try. If you have any questions or are looking for a refund feel free to get in contact at
Hope this helps.
