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 short-backed style allows for a greater range of motion. Note that the shorter back length does not provide tailbone coverage.  A four-way twist molded channel system allows for better air flow and a close fit.

    Tipperary Ride-Lite Vest is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy! The Velcro straps to adjust the fit makes this vest feel secure and comfortable.
    Date published: 2017-09-27
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made item Got this a few weeks ago, chose it because it was a good brand but not super expensive. I know nothing about using these vests, and so far have not had a chance to try it out. I was please with how quickly the item arrived. I am impressed with the workmanship and the fit seems true to size. My shoulders might be a little narrow for the fit, so I will have to see how comfortable it is when I am holding the reins, or if it cuts into my shoulders. I love the adjustability of the vest, hoping it will work out well on the trail.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Basic but good quality Got this for cross country as I am just starting to get into eventing. I am not sure if offers as much protection as the rated vests but for the price it fits great, is comfortable and well made. I am 5'5 and 125. XS fits well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality and fit I bought this to protect myself after an accident where I fell off my horse and broke multiple ribs. This vest is comfortable and lightweight. I forget that I'm wearing it while riding. I was worried it would be too hot in the SC heat but that has not been an issue. Wearing it gives me confidence. The Velcro straps are adjustable for a secure fit. The only complaint I have is that the vest makes a squeaking noise. It's not noticeable when riding, but when I'm tacking up it's a little annoying.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Glad I bought it Bought this vest a few weeks ago and like it more than I thought I would. It doesn't interfere with my riding like I thought it might. My horse tends to spook and as I age and get more brittle bones I am concerned about coming off and getting hurt. Wearing the vest is something I can do to hopefully prevent a more serious injury if I do come off.
