Re: my first meeting

I had a full armour suit and at Riverhill I cut the lower arms off as they were too tight and pumping my forearms. Now alternate between that armour and EVES roost protector when 1/ it's a little hot 2/ when there's more to hit. Like Rendlesham. Rendlesham = full body armour "imho"

Not if it's a hot day I must admit :silent: I usually wear armour meant for equestrian events, it looks like a bullet proof vest, very hot to wear in the summer but keeps the core warm during the winter even then I will sweat through it in places...superb fit and comfortable.

I never ride without any knee pads, feel vulnerable without them on.

Not surprised mate!
I went to put my new boots on at Hockliffe and my knee guards wouldn't fit under my boots. So I had to put on my old one's. Now looking for some that don't offer so much shin protection.

Re: my first meeting

Do you want me to see if I can sort starting on the same row which would probably be row seven or take your chances with row picking. Let me know and I will try to sort it.
