Equestrian and Rodeo Braces and Supports
Any activity that involves animals, especially ones as large and strong as horses, puts participants at risk for injury. There are about 50,000 emergency room visits per year related to horseback riding activities*. That's why protection is so important for equestrian activities such as horseback riding and rodeo. Areas such as the shoulder, wrist and back are at risk during long hours of riding. Of course, these areas are also at risk in case of a fall. Protective gear may help prevent injuries by keeping your joints in the proper position. Rodeo activities present even more opportunity for injury. With all the jolting around during bull riding, steer wrestling and bareback riding, the rider's knees sustain a lot of force. This can cause ligament tears or other injuries. Wearing equestrian braces and supports can help provide stabilization for your joints when riding. Check out the equestrian braces recommended by our brace coaches today!
