I'm looking into getting a protective vest right now, but I'm not sure what kind is best. Here are two that I'm really looking into.. What are yalls thoughts?
Charles Owen UltraLite Body Protector - Quality Tack at Outlet Prices - VTO Saddlery
Rodney Powell Elite Body Protector and Body Protectors | EQUESTRIAN COLLECTIONS.COM
I live in southeast georgia so it can get pretty hot and humid in the summer, and I can deal with being hot but I don't want to have to worry about dying from heat exhaustion. I do a good bit of jumping and I'm starting to do more as I get ready for showing this year. I mainly want something to help protect me from breaking something if I hit the ground or a jump.. Or a tree as one girl did.. Lol
Any input or other ideas of good vests are appreciated :) I do want something that's a little more form fitting and not super bulky. I was hoping not to pay more than about 150-175, but I am willing to pay more for better quality and protection.
