The cross-country phase of eventing requires horse and rider to jump solid natural obstacles at speed and the occasional fall is inevitable. Years of research have led to the development of state-of-the-art air vests which are worn over a traditional body protector and inflate between the rider leaving the saddle and hitting the ground thanks to fast-acting CO2 cartridges. At Bit of Britain find air vests from the most trusted names on the market.
