The back protector of HORKA provides protection to the front and back, just like a regular body protector.
For back protectors is the standard EN 1621-2. This protector and standard are taken from motorsport as the equestrian still does not have a European certification for this type of protector. In motorsports are similar levels of impact during a fall, therefore this type is permitted in the equestrian sport. Various parties in the equestrian industry aim to handle this same certification in a few years, in order to provide clarity in the market.
The back protector is increasingly used in equestrian sports because it adds more flexibility and comfort features than the body protector. The EVA foam parts are perforated allowing improved ventilation in comparison with protectors with fixed hard foam blocks.
- Washing instructions: 30 degrees in the washing machine*
*Most of the foam parts can be removed which makes the back protector suitable for the washing machine.
