Horseback Riding riding can be an exhilarating activity, and horses are majestic creatures, but never forget you’re dealing with a huge animal that could easily kill you if it feels like. Now, two companies are trying to increase the safety factor for the equestrian Eventing sport a little bit with inflatable air vests. You pull a short cord when you know you’re about to fall off, and a gas canister inflates the vest in less than a second. They’re available now for between $400-700, which is a small price to pay to keep your life.
