I have been looking for a good protective vest and my local tack shop only carries the Tipperary brand. They look very comfortable however I have read on this forum that they are not certified. The lady at my tack store is sure they are are certified and sells many of them to people who are into jumping. Can someone point me to a website or something that states for certain if these vests are certified or not?? Her and I have both looked on the internet and can find nothing about this except in the forums.
