Whether you want one for epic action videos, or just for safety when riding on the road, good quality action cameras don’t have to break the bank.

The BHS ‘Dead? Or Dead Slow’ campaign has highlighted just how dangerous the roads now are in the UK for horse riders. We always recommend that horse riders always do two things when out on the road.

1 – Wear florescent and reflective clothing, you and your horse

2 – Wear a camera

Most drivers will automatically drive more carefully/respectfully when they see that you have a camera. However, in the unfortunate event of an accident, you have irrefutable proof of what happened, who was at fault and evidence to send to the police and insurance companies. Which can ensure that a conviction or a claim goes through a lot quicker and smoother than it usually would.

Drivers at fault have been successfully prosecuted thanks to riders camera footage. Also footage on social media from riders head cameras has helped to raise awareness for the issues that we all face on the roads when riding.

So here are 5 of the best head cameras that we could find for under £100. All of these cameras, regardless of the price, will be good enough to record a number plate in the event of an incident, or even just to capture an awesome gallop on your best friend.
