    safety ratings on vests?

    I'm new to the horse forum and I'm trying to figure out what kind of vest to get my 12-year-old daughter. She jumps and does mounted games at a high rate of speed. After a nasty fall last week on hard gravel, I finally wised up and realized I need to get her a protective vest. I've been researching and learning about the safety ratings, but I'm confused about ASTM F1937-04(2010) and EN 13158:2009. Is there a difference? I know in addition, the vest should be BETA Level 3 also. I don't mind investing in a good one...I just want it to be the right one. Been looking at the Rodney Powells, Airowear Outlyne and Charles Owens. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

    Any of the three you mentioned would be fine. I have a Rodney powell that I love, because they are custom fit and not really any more expensive (they also come in lots of awesome colors)

    Like Gypsygirl said, any of those will give you good protection. I have the Airowear and love it. Since we're talking 12 year old girl, you can get the Airowear from the UK for less than you can in the US and you can order it in a myriad of colors.
