At Stockley Outdoor & Equestrian we make the fitting of safety products for riding our priority! We know how much fun horse riding is and though it is a fantastic hobby, like anything exciting there are risks involved too. At Stockley we offer you a first rate safety fitting service to help you find the items that best suits you or your loved ones.
We pride ourselves on the enviable reputation for professionally fitting body protectors. All of our staff undergo rigorous in house training followed up with a professional training course with each relevant company covering their products. The personal touch is paramount to both Stockley and customers alike.
Body Protectors – Levels of Protection
There are 3 BETA standard recognised levels of protection with body protectors to cater for different riding activities.
We only stock Level 3 Body Protectors.
Level 1 – Green Label
Body protectors certified to Level 1 provide a lower level of impact protection that is only considered appropriate for licensed jockeys while racing.
Level 2 – Orange Label
Body protectors certified to Level 2 provide a lower than normal level of protection that is only considered appropriate for use in low risk situations. These DO NOT include riding on roads or other hard surfaces, riding over jumps, riding young or excitable horses or riding while inexperienced.
Level 3 – Blue Label
Body protectors certified to Level 3 provide a level of protection that is considered appropriate for normal horse riding, competitors and for working with horses. Protectors to this level should prevent minor bruising that would have produced stiffness and pain, reduce soft tissue injuries and bruising, and prevent a limited number of rib fractures
