Keep bringing back the gold medals Oli!!

Lucky Winner

Charlotte Beardsley

We were lucky enough to recently win a Rider Gilet from 4DflexiSPORT and Barbara very kindly fitted Ash out with her size this week.

From previous elbow injuries as a child, Ash is very crooked and it’s impacted her scapula and hip causing alignment issues. The gilet is already making an improvement to the way Ash rides after only two sessions, even resulting in hers and Ross’ first jump together this morning 🥰

We are extremely grateful to Barbara for choosing us as competition winners and for taking time out of her day to measure and fit the gilet, as well as talking us through the science behind it all. If you are interested in helping your position in the saddle, please follow the page!

Also huge thanks to Sophie Fretwell Eventing for introducing us to 4DflexiSPORT as we’d have never entered the competition otherwise, and for all of the endless help you are giving to us through this journey.

All the best Barbara x

There's nothing like it to improve your riding

Tina Canton
As a rider, I find the gilet improves my balance and symmetry in the saddle. From a coach's perspective, I don't have to constantly nag my students and clients about posture.

Excellent news, all the the best Tina.

Posture correction and teaching tool in one

Sophie Fretwell
As a 3 star event rider, I found the Rider Gilet absolutely essential in my recovery from a terrible rotational fall 4yrs ago. I sustained multiple fractures and I certainly couldn't have got back to riding as quickly as I did without it. Now I use it as a posture maintenance tool and for keeping me at my absolute best in the saddle. Incidentally, I find it also helps me recover faster after competitions. I'm very happy to recommend the gilet to clients which means I can concentrate on their riding rather than nagging them about posture.

Brilliant news on all fronts Sophie. Thrilled you're back on top after that nasty fall, keep up the great work!
Best wishes Barbara

Love it!

I love the rider gilet I purchased. I'm so pleased to have found it after riding accidents along the way have left me with multiple joint and muscle issues, diaphragm damage, and hunched shoulders. Highly recommend it for medical purposes and to keep you right in the saddle.

It gives me the greatest pleasure knowing that we are helping a serving officer in the British Army.

Sincere thanks, Barbara

Great tool and support in one

I discovered the rider gilet after breaking my collarbone and using their Clavibrace clavicle fracture gilet. I was so impressed at how fast my fracture healed and how much my posture had improved that I decided to buy the posture version for riders. Now I don’t know what I’d do without it and recommend it to all those I teach.
Thank you so much Polly.

I'm thrilled and delighted that both versions of the gilet have helped and your clients are using it too. Here's hoping you don't need the gilet for a broken collarbone again! 
Best wishes Barbara

A game changer for me

After my collarbone was removed I thought my riding career was over. Since discovering the rider gilet some years ago it has been a real game-changer for me. It supports my shoulder and compensates for my lack of strength as a result of not having a collarbone. I wear it for training and under my body protector when competing and thanks to the gilet I have fulfilled my lifelong dream of competing at Badminton Horse Trials.
Thank you Louise

So happy the gilet has helped you acheive your dream.
All the best Barbara

Definitely feel the benefit

I have ridden in my gilet four times now and my lower back has zero pain after riding. My riding coach thought I was leaning to the right but the cross on the back showed that it was in fact, my horse that was dropping her hindquarters. The fit is very good and I feel it is beneficial to me and really helping with my horses' training too.

Thank you Jill great news.

All the best Barbara

Brilliant for riding

Found this brilliant for riding. I’m disabled and it helps me so much with my spine problems which give me lots of pain but now I can ride. Thank you

4DflexiSPORT replied
Could'nt be more thrilled!
Best wishes
