The style, design and technology of rider's body protection equipment is continually evolving and improving. We stock body protectors for male riders from the leading manufacturers and suppliers, ensuring we offer the best, lightweight and most up-to-date protection available on the market.
Body protectors are designed to safeguard the chest, waist and shoulders, absorbing the impact in the event of an equestrian accident, be it a fall, being kicked or trampled by a horse.
Wearing a body protector is compulsory in most equestrian competitions, and the equipment has to meet the safety standards for the particular discipline according to levels set down by BETA (the British Equestrian Trade Association).
Most male riders, however, have reportedly told BETA that they do not need to be compelled by regulation to wear protection, which they regard as a necessary and sensible precaution when indulging in equestrian sport, whether it be for leisure and pleasure or serious international competition.
