AIR VEST: the air vest protects the upper body parts by absorbing shocks and distributing the pressure due to falling off the horse. The jacket is also effective as it limits the extra torsion movements; because when the air jacket is inflated it makes the rider take a natural contracting position. When thrown off the horse the airbag is designed to reach full inflation in 0.1 seconds, covering the neck, spinal column, trunk, coccyx, collar and ribs. Keeping the ribs from breaking also means avoiding heart, lungs and pancreas perforations.
The garment was studied to take into account the riders instinct reactions to a fall. For example, the inflated air Jacket still enables the rider to round his neck and roll in front in a pirouette, as it is one of the best natural ways to land and protect oneself.
Modifications have been made to improve practicality and comfort. The clip situated at the end of the lanyard was replaced by a light weight carabiner. The carabiner lasts longer in outdoor conditions and it is easier to handle when one has gloves.
The stirrup straps that stay on the saddle and the lanyard have been studied to enable full movement in all directions for any rider’s physiognomy.
It is quick and easy to connect the lanyard to the saddle. The lanyard has to be clipped in the two ends of the nylon stirrup straps that stay on the front saddle at all time. The air jacket is completely reusable by replacing the CO2 gas canister.
