Riding After Dark - Help Me Light My Way

I need help.

I am struggling with the onset of another season of early darkness impacting my already sparse riding time.

Having to ask the barn owners every time I need the lights turned on in the riding ring makes me feel powerless and forces me into a specific time that I have to be there.

I wish I could somehow safely illuminate my path, just so I could manage a 20 or 30 minute walk/trot ride in a safe way without bothering anyone.

I found this item on Amazon but know nothing about it. I wish there was a way to "try before you buy" something like this but of course, there isn't.

LED Horse Breastcollar

Anyone out there have any real-use suggestions for this? I just need enough light to see where we are going in the enclosed riding arena. I know plenty of people ride after dark with no light but that's not for me. Keep in mind, I'm a 53 year old rider who is experienced but in order to keep riding as long as I can, wants to minimize my risk of having a horse spook in the dark at whatever and cause me a wreck.
