Stay safe in (and out!) of the saddle wearing our protective horse rider vests for men, women and children from Mary's Tack. Our protective riding vests are available in a variety of colors, styles and fit. Select a well-fitting equestrian vest for safety while trail riding, learning to ride, jumping, or competing. Our safety jackets for horse riding have side lacing plus front-zip closures to ensure an adjustable, proper fit. We have protective riding vests for eventing with dense padding to protect your spine and ribs and a flexible front design for optimal range of motion while youere on your horse.
For a proper fit and ease of putting on the body protector, loosen the side laces and keep them loose while you zip up. Then, adjust the laces. For any riding, from relaxed trail rides to cross country jumping, ites important to have the correct size and secure, close fit. To find the right size, measure your chest at the widest point and your waist at your natural waist. Next, while seated in a chair, measure your spine from the small bump at the back of your neck to the tailbone. A clearance of 1 inch to 2 inches from the chair seat to your tailbone is what you want to prevent interference with the saddle when youere on horseback. If you have questions about sizing, contact our friendly, knowledgeable staff. We have been outfitting horse riders since we opened our flagship store in Southern California ranch and horse riding country way back in 1963. Please visit if youere ever in Del Mar, California.
