Fatal accidents occur annually during cross-country events when the
rider is thrown off the horse and crushed when the horse lands on top.
The Aegis protection vest is designed to protect the user from these fatal impacts. The chest protection works with a light but very strong
carbon frame construction, covering the whole chest and thereby shielding the vital inner organs in the upper torso.
The Aegis vest can with advantages be used any other kind of equesterian
activity, giving the rider with both a genuine feeling of safety without compromising agility nor the complete riding experience.
