KAN TEQ has made waves in the equestrian world since the debut of their innovative horse riding body protector, but they have also made a real difference in the lives of their wearers.
A mother writes that the KAN TEQ equestrian body protector kept her daughter out of a wheelchair. During a recent event, the young woman's horse put in a dirty stop, throwing the rider through the air. She landed on the base of her spine, on top of a log. If she had been wearing a conventional protector, or no protector at all, her injuries could have included lifelong confinement to a wheelchair. The only injury the rider sustained was a bit of a jostling, according to her mother.
KAN TEQ is a revolutionary horse riding body protector, developed by Wendy McCaughan and endorsed by professional riders like Janette Brakewell and Nicola Wilson. McCaughan worked in the field of fashion design, and landed a project working with authorities on bulletproof vest design. However, as a lifelong equestrian, McCaughan immediately saw a way to implement this technology in the field of body protectors for riders.
Combining her knowledge of advanced construction and design with the benefits of unique foam padding created by Knox, the OEM source for much of the protective gear used in the world of motorcycling, she created the KAN TEQ horse riding protector. The differences here go much deeper than just the benefits offered by Knox foam and new technology, though.
The KAN TEQ protector is designed differently. It is moulded to fit the rider's body, and is custom-designed to provide comfort and ease of movement, while still providing industry-best protection. In fact, the KAN TEQ protector has earned BETA Level 3 certification for the amount of protection that it affords to riders.
