The Patey PROtector
The all new British made Patey PROtector meets current international safety regulations and can be used in all competitions throughout the whole field of equestrian sport, whilst still providing discerning riders with the chic, stylish finish of the classic Patey.
According to the British Equestrian Trade Association:
“[Snell E2001] is the newest standard, developed in America by the Snell Institute. It is a higher performance standard which includes all aspects of ASTM and PAS 015 but with a sharper horseshoe anvil (to replicate a horse kick or impact with a sharp surface), higher impacts and an additional hemispherical anvil to represent an uneven but not sharp surface such as a tree, fence or cobbled surface.”
The four main safety certifications are BSI Kitemark in the UK, CE Mark for Europe, SEI for the US and the SNELL Internationally. Each certification requires initial helmet testing before they issue their certification. SNELL perform regular ongoing testing of the hats in accordance with the most recent safety information.
