Horse riding is a passionate sport but also a dangerous sport, at high level as well as in leisure. The Airbag jacket is an innovation that protects the rider's vital areas.
For an airbag to be effective, it must first be worn. It is for this reason that we have decided to remove as much as possible the constraints related to its use.
We have worked closely with In&motion, a company specialising in personal protection for skiing and motorcycling, which has received several awards for its innovations.
Together we have completely redesigned the horse riding airbag. From the gas cartridge, to the trigger, to the fit of the vest or the leash, everything has been optimized to offer safety, comfort and discretion to riders, from beginners to CSI 5*.
⇨ Currently, the AIRBAG VEST NOT AVAILABLE FOR DIRECT SALE in the following countries: UK, China, Japan, USA, Canada, Mexico, Australia, & South Africa. For a better service, training and support we are encouraging our customers to order the airbag range to our local Horse Pilot retailers. Please find your local retailer or contact us directly.

The safety vests from Horse Pilot are designed to provide safety, comfort and freedom of movement. Because horse riding involves taking risks, the riding vest is directly inspired from other adrenaline sports such as moto and ski. Safety clothing are meant to protect vital areas : the ribs, the back, the abdomen, the spine the shoulder, the neck, the coccyx to avoid serious injuries. The inflatable air jacket is triggered through a cartridge in a millisecond. You just have to tie it to the stirrup leather of your saddle and your ready to ride. The body protector will only be deployed when falling off the horse. It is therefore safe to walk, trot, canter, gallop and jump without fearing the unintentional deployment of the riding vest.
Despite the high tech protection system, this safety apparel remains light weight, waterproof and elastic thanks to the padded lining, the small zipper and the light snug for an optimal freedom of movement while riding. Riding helmets have become a standard and mandatory to wear both at home and in competition. Our main concern is that safety vests follow the same way in order to provide riders the perfect riding experience and protective gear. Whether you practice olympic dressage, show jumping, cross-country, endurance or take western riding lessons, your garment must provide maximum protection.
You can try on the airbag in our partner saddlery and ask for personalised advice. There are also special compatible products that can be worn above the airbag vest such as a show jacket for competition or a bomber jacket during training. Contrary to hi-vis jacket, the airbag riding vest from Horse Pilot won't even be noticed under clothes from the compatible range. We have worked in collaboration with in&motion to create a protective gear that meets the aesthetic and ergonomic needs required in horse riding. These long years of research have paid off, as the airbag has won over its users from beginners to 5 stars Grand Prix riders. Discover the testimonials of our airbag enthusiasts.
Beyond being validated by great riders for its comfort, design and safety, the airbag jacket is approved by the CRITT sport loisirs laboratory (Standard CE en 13158). This makes the safety vest the flagship product of Horse Pilot as it is equipped with all the state-of-the-art technologies. Waterproof, stretch, comfortable, elegant, light, trying it on is adopting it.
