Safety vests and back protectors protect riders

Back protectors and safety vests have long been compulsory in eventing equestrian sports. There is an increased risk of falling due to difficult obstacles and weather conditions. But even in "simple" equestrian sports, the trend is towards safety vests. Beginners and children in particular should wear a back protector to protect the back, spine and internal organs in the event of a fall or a kick.

How to find the right size of the back protector

When it comes to a safety riding vest, it all comes down to the right fit and size. The vest should be neither too small nor too large and should fit snugly but not restrict movement. It is best to measure the size when you are sitting on a saddle. The back protector should protect as much of the spine as possible, but not touch the saddle, because in this case the vest slips and it is very uncomfortable to wear. Leave a gap of about 5 cm between the cantle and the lower edge of the vest so that your vest does not bang open. You can use your clothing size as a guide to the width. If you are unsure, we will help you Lepona Shop in Lippstadt gladly further.

Which back protector protection class is the right one?

There are three different protection classes for riding protection vests:

  • Level 1: Least protection, usually special vests, for example for professional jockeys.
  • Level 2: Medium protection for equestrian sports with moderate risk. Most back protectors have this protection class and offer a good compromise between comfort and protection. Level 2 riding vests usually only protect the spine and tailbone.
  • Level 3: highest protection, for show jumping or eventing and cross country riders. These protectors protect the entire upper body from impact damage and blows from eg hoof kicks.

Are you an experienced rider but your horse is a little nervous, do you ride a lot on the training ground or in the riding arena? Then the level 2 protective vest is suitable. You should already be able to roll properly in a fall to minimize the fall damage.
Are you a beginner, are you looking for a riding vest for a child or do you jump with your horse on the pitch or over terrain obstacles? Then better use a level 3 protective vest for riding. Because this also protects your front in the event of a fall. This protection class is also suitable for you when working directly with a horse eventto protect ual hoof kicks. Level 3 protectors are also recommended for carriage drivers.
