I hope not. I love my Tipperary and wish to continue with it. I spent most of my life eventing with NO vest and am still here. The Tipp has served me very well. It is cooler and more comfortable so I am more likely to school in it on those HOT NC days.

I don't know, time will only tell. I hope they do, it only makes sense - you cannot ride without an ASTM helmet, so why not these vests, which are obviously, just as important out on that xc course as your helmet.

I don't mind those using the certified inflatable vest overtop their Tip or Tip knock off - but alone....I'm just tired of hearing and seeing riders getting carried off the xc course with fractured/broken ribs while wearing them.

People get carried off of the course with fractured bones regardless of if their vest is a Tipperary or not. And if they wear an airvest or not.

Oliver Townend was air lifted off of the course at Rolex last year. Guess what? He was wearing an air vest AND a vest that meets safety standards. It's all about how you fall and the circumstances involved.

Recently PCAQ rules her have been edited so that you must wear a Medical Arm Band and a Certified Vest. I think these rules are excellent and help to enforce the safety of riders. Of course these vests don't protect you no matter what, but the safer the better. Right?

Are medical arm bands compulsory anywhere else?

Chingaz,

Yes. At every USEA competition you must wear your medical armband here. Even schooling shows are usually pretty strict on it. Every XC schooling also requires them.

Here - I believe that we do not have to wear a medical arm band when schooling privately. Although - any form of event run by PCAQ or EFA (Schooling, Clinic, Competitions) it is very strict you wear a certified vest & helmet along with a medical armband.

Here if you're schooling on your own private property, anything goes. But many of the places we go to school (real xc courses, not out rinky dink stuff), require that you are properly outfitted, helmet, vest, boots, and medical armband.

If your horse says no, you either asked the wrong question or asked the question wrong
