We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further discounts or promotions.

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

The Tipperary Ride-Lite Vest is a great choice for the beginner or recreational rider. The dual density padding system provides superior shock absorption and impact reduction.

The short-backed style allows for a greater range of motion (although please note that the shorter back length does not provide tailbone coverage). A four-way twist molded channel system allows for better air flow and flexibility.

Favorite Features

  • Removable, washable liner
  • Adjustable waist and shoulder straps,
  • Floating sternum pad
  • Zippered front

Tipperary Ride-Lite Vest - Youth is rated 4.444444444444445 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good starter vest for kids Bought this for my nine year old. Easy enough for her to put on, zip herself, and then make all of her own adjustments (which mom checks before she rides). Only down side to our order was the fact that every other nine year o!d in the country must have wanted one in purple also because none were available for three more weeks. We needed this one right away so she had to make do with navy. Only design drawback is lack of extended tailbone protection but I don't see that as a critical issue at her level. Vest passed the dumping test on its very first outing when fat slow pony decided to jump up a x-country bank and out of the water at HIS discretion. He needed to give an extra hike to get hiney out of water which popped my very surprised daughter up on his neck. He landed all fours on the grass and plopped her on the ground in a classic slow mo scene. Very funny---one satisfied bad pony, one grinning kid, one mom shaking her head. Vest works just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! This vesy was everything I was hoping for and more. It is comfortable, light-weight and provides the added protection we wanted. If ever I forget to put it on my daughter reminds me, she loves it too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to be very good. I haven't had a chance to use this riding my horse yet, as I fell and broke my leg before it arrived- I find it to be very comfortable and it feels like it will do fine. I got the black model which is much different from the other ones. I can only say that it runs large. I am 4'11 and weigh 80 pounds and the best fit was in the extra small youth. The small was too big even though the measurements provided were correct. I like the way the vest is removable and the range of motion it provides. Returns,
