No matter whether you are eventing, about to back a young horse or just going out hacking, body protection is of high importance and should be considered.

Designed to absorb impact from a fall or kick from a horse, body protectors are compulsory for some competitions. But an increasing number of riders report feeling more confident - and therefore riding more positively - when wearing one in everyday situations from hacking to schooling over fences.

With increased research and technology modern body protecting garments are more flexible and lightweight than their predecessors which is encouraging more riders to opt for body protection. Not only that, 21st century body protectors come in fun, fashionable colours (or plain if you prefer), are quick and easy to put on - and don’t necessarily cost as much as you may think.

A good fit is the key to comfort and safety.

OUR TRAINED FITTING TEAMRedpost Equestrian are part of BETA

A body protector will not protect unless it is properly fitted. It must cover all the correct areas without restricting riding movement. When purchasing a body protector it is important that you are fitted by a trained professional as not all body protectors will give the same fit and could be ineffective if fitted incorrectly.

Our team of trained body protector fitters are always available in store to help with fitting and will go through steps with you to ensure you leave well protected. We will walk you through the different styles on offer and try on several different types in order for you to asses comfort and for us to check the fit.


We stock a wide range of body protectors. Take a look below at just some of the brands we have on offer.
