Unisex riding jacket with inbuilt body protector

The Mountain Horse Bodyguard Jacket is an excellent choice for those horse riders who perhaps lack a little confidence and are looking for extra protection without resorting to using an actual body protector.

The jacket includes concealed and detachable protective pads at those vulnerable parts of the body, such as the lower back. These pads are invisble when the jacket is worn and mould around your body as they warm up which means you won’t know you’re wearing them.

The attached images show the areas that the protective pads cover, namely those areas around your spine, hips, shoulders, lumbar region and elbows.

This jacket is also fully waterproof and breathable so you can use it as a practical and useful riding coat, with or without the pads which can be removed and washed separately.

When it’s really pouring down with rain, you can be assured of good sideways visibility as the detachable hood has adjustable drawstrings.

Finally, the jacket has plenty of roomy pockets along with one designed specifically to hold a mobile phone. There’s the added benefit of reflective fabric on the shoulders and sleeves, plus an SOS whistle concealed in one of the pockets.

Please note: the Bodyguard Jacket is not designed to replace a body protector and is not suitable for competition where body protectors are required.
