In some cases, horse riding can be considered a dangerous sport/pastime. Like wearing a helmet for head protection, some riders choose to wear body protectors and air vests to help protect their bodies in the unfortunate event of a fall.
Advances in design and the manufacture of protective materials have made today’s body protectors comfortable, supportive and very easy to wear. Whilst suitable for all types of riding, body protection is very popular when show jumping, eventing, racing or road riding. Prepared riders, often use body protection when riding a young/untrained horse. Primarily constructed of shock absorbing panels, you will find many disciplines require the rider to wear a vest that conforms to specific standards.
Coming in a range of men’s, ladies and children’s sizes, these protectors provide support and assist in reducing the risk of injury to yourself or your family members.
