Watch Protective Air Vests In Action…Should More Disciplines Be Using them?
German rider Niklas Bschorer sets off his protective air-vest while battling to stay on his horse at the Badminton Horse Trials. The air-vest is similar to an airbag in a car. If the rider falls it will inflate and help protect against injury. I know many cross country riders swear by them and they even make a kids version. Do you think these air-vests are strictly for cross country or should other disciplines be using them? Also, do you think more children should be wearing them? We’d love to hear your opinions. Share this on Facebook if you think the air-vest is a great idea!
