Purchasing a body protector is an essential investment for your safety, whether you're a happy hacker or top eventer, and taking the time to find the correctly fitting body protector is crucial.
Here at Throstlenest we sell a range of top quality body protectors which all have reassurance of the highest European & BETA 2009 or 2018 Level 3 protection. In performance terms there is no difference in the amount of protection offered by the two versions;The 2009 version will cease manufacture at the end of 2018, but disciplines and rider organisations will continue to recognise and accept these until further notice.
Level 3, identified by a Purple or Turquoise Label - is considered appropriate for general riding, competitions including eventing, and working with horses. It is the highest level of protection available in a body protector.
Our top recommended body protector for adults is the Racesafe Provent 3.0. Exceptionally lightweight and breathable, it allows full comfort & freedom due to the flex of its independently hinged sections.
For children, we fully recommend the Airowear Outlyne Body Protector, which offers adjustable chest, waist and shoulder fastenings for the growing rider, whilst offering maximum protection for your little one.
