In support of BETA Safety Week 2019, we are offering 10% off all safety equipment including hats, body protectors and air jackets.
BETA Safety Week aims to raise awareness of rider safety and maintaining safety equipment spanning from Saturday 27th April to Sunday 5th March. As well as discounts on new safety wear, we are also inviting people to bring in their current hats and body protectors and one of our qualified members of staff will happily check the fitting and condition, free of charge. Investing in your safety is one of the best things you can do as a rider and with so many options on the market, many of which fit slightly differently, it’s hard to know which option is best for you. Safety equipment can play a vital part when riding a horse, especially if you have an accident. Always ensure your hat is fitted correctly by a professional and remember to replace if you have a fall! If in doubt, follow the Golden Triangle of hat fitting to ensure you are safe in the saddle.
Often it is thought that safety equipment such as air jackets and body protectors are just for eventers, but this is not true. Safety equipment is for every level of rider doing every discipline. It’s important that your safety equipment is up to standard and correctly fitted to ensure that it can protect you effectively. This can be checked with associations such as British Eventing, British Dressage or British Showjumping. The modern manufacturing of safety equipment has improved significantly, raising the standard of protection but also making them more comfortable and a bit more flattering! With 10% off all safety equipment, now’s the time to review or treat yourself to a new hat, body protector or air jacket ahead of a glorious summer of pony fun! We hope to see you in store soon.
