KNOW THE CUR­RENT STAN­DARDS

Your Horse (UK) - - Ask The Experts -

The BETA body pro­tec­tor stan­dard sets the bench­mark for safety and is rec­om­mended by all lead­ing rid­ing or­gan­i­sa­tions and dis­ci­plines. Cur­rently, body pro­tec­tors must show a CE mark and com­ply with per­for­mance stan­dard EN13158. This sets the level of shock ab­sorp­tion and con­trols the area of the body that must be cov­ered by the pro­tec­tor. At present, the BETA Level 3 2009 body pro­tec­tor will meet the re­quire­ments for any eques­trian dis­ci­pline, but keep abreast of fu­ture changes at bhs.org.uk/bodypro­tec­tors.
