Do you wear a vest?
Since I've started training youngsters again, my parents decided to give me an early birthday present - a savety vest made by Tipperary.
I had always considered them to be "eventing" vests, and had never really thought much about them until they gave me this present.
Now I have totally changed my tune. With youngsters, you never know what they might do, so I decided that it wasn't worth risking a busted rib over not wearing one. I really like it. I don't wear it riding Maia as I feel safe and confident on her, but I do while riding the other two.
However, I have heard that some riding schools won't let kids ride with vests, and I don't know why. It does offer protection.
Do any of you wear vests?
