Here at Houghton Country, we provide a great selection of women's body protectors for horse riding. Although accidents are a rare occurrence their effects can be serious, we always recommend wearing a riding hat, body protector and air jacket whether hacking out on the roads or schooling over fences.
The main difference between a body protector and an Air Vest is that the body protector offers protection at all times while worn whilst the air vest is on effective when fully inflated which requires a trigger mechanism to be engaged. Air Vest's at this time are considered as additional protection by organisations such as British Eventing, when riding cross country where as a body protector and a up to standard skull cap are complusory.
Our favourite air jacket is the Hit Air Vest which inflates upon seperation from saddle, providing protection to your ribcage, chest and vital organs as well as being lightweight and easy to move in. Be sure to browse our full selection of ladies body protectors and buy online today.
