Body Protectors NZ

Whether Competing, or just staying safe at home, these Back Protectors, Riding Vests & Body Protectors will keep you safe. We stock Champion Ti22 Vests, Dublin Body Protectors and Champion Flex-Air Body Protectors. All Body protectors we sell meet the required standards for competing in NZ. The Champion Ti22 is currently our most popular riding vest due to its lightweight nature, flexibility and general comfort. All our body protectors do have size charts available, and it is important to get the correct size, so it can give you full protection. No matter whether you're planning to go to pony club, eventing, backing a young horse, having a riding lesson,  or going out for a hack with friends, consideration should always be given to protecting your body. Designed to absorb impact from a fall or kick from the horse, level 3 body protectors are compulsory for some competitions, where as level 1 and 2 are suitable for everyday riding or post injury precaution. A minimum standard for Body Protectors has been introduced on 1 August 2020 by NZPCA and ESNZ EVENTING which is BETA EN13158 2009 or 2018 Level 3 or ASTM F1937
The most important thing to consider when buying a back protector is comfort.  If you are not comfortable in wearing it, you will always find an excuse to leave it off, and not wear it. If it fits comfortably and you can move freely, you are more likely to wear it every day without thinking.
