Change in Back Protector standards


At Saddles and Style, we are committed to the safety of our customers.As a result we guarantee that all of the products sold are of the highest safety standard.

In an effort to improve rider safety, January 2018 saw an upgrade in the safety standard of back protectors.Therefore  organisations such as AIRC and Eventing Ireland now require competitors to only wear back protectors with the BETA Level 3, 2009 standard.

In fact, most equestrian organisations will no longer permit the use of the older BETA Level 3 back protectors with the 2000 Label. As no back protector with BETA 2000 have been produced since 2011,consequently this new rule ensures any body protectors being used are a minimum of 5 years old.

At Saddles and Style, in an effort to ensure our customers safety ,we are now only stocking back protector’s with the BETA Level 3 2018 standard.

Pop into Saddles and Style for a FREE Professional fitting with our qualified staff or order online here to view our range of body protectors.

We stock a range of styles to fit all body shapes and budgets, including; Champion Flexair, Champion Ti22Titanium, RaceSafe RS2010, Racesafe Provent.
