Point Two & KM Elite Products are proud to announce our 2 Amateur Brand Ambassadors for 2016!!
Angeline Chandler & Pandora Briselden
25 year old Angeline Chandler competes her 15.2 Bay Gelding called Bailey
"Monday-Friday l work in recruitment and I love my job which is how I manage to pay for my eventing, training and riding club competitions. Everyone at work knows that I am horsey mad and that my evenings after work consist of pampering and exercising my horse. Bailey loves his jumping and over the last year has decided to also become a little bit of a dressage diva! (I think he secretly likes being plaited up and looking all posh and pretty!) Before I had owned Bailey I had just ridden/loaned a few of my friend’s horses as never had the money or opportunity to own my own. Bailey was the first horse who took me XC and I can remember our first schooling session together. That's when I realised his love for jumping, especially if it involved XC fences."
"I am extremely passionate about Point Two and have seen the benefits through my own personal experiences, so always wear it during training and events. My point two jacket is so lightweight that I hardly notice I'm wearing it and yet it gives me the extra confidence I need when out schooling and competing! I am always recommending it to friends and other equine associates!"
14 year old Pandora competes her two ponies at FEI pony trials
"One of my ponies is Bramblebrough Eoghan, a 14.2 connemara who is 7 years old. I have had him since he turned 5 and Over the last two and a half seasons we have worked up from BE90 to BENOVICE/ Pony trials. This has taught me lots about producing a young pony and waiting for the results, as well as the fact that hard work pays off.We have had many successes including placing in every BE100 in the 2015 season including 3rd at Weston park, 4th at Aston le walls and 3rd at Bovington. We also qualified for the Badminton grassroots 2016/ Mitsubishi Cup in the BE100 by finishing 3rd at the regional final at Bricky and we will be competing there this May which is very exciting. So far in 2016 we finished with a double clear at moreton BE100 and at Aldon pony trial as well as 8th/52 at oasby pon trial. Our next stop is Weston trial. He is not without his quirks and is a very sharp pony, he hates being caught, plaited, clipped, brushed and has a habit of escaping in the lorry park but it is what makes him good.
My other pony joined me last year and is called Carrenhill Bobby. He is an irish sports pony and is 15 but acts about 5. He had had a few years off before we bought him but is great fun despite being a bit of a hot head. We are working on keeping him from exploding in his tests and this worked at Aldon where he scored a 34 in the pony trial. I hope to complete brand hall on him this season and just have lots of fun while aiming Owen for the team.

We received the below email from Francesca's parents,
"Dear Point Two
It is very difficult to get 'firsts' in Modern Pentathlon for British Women due to the fantastic success British Women have had over the last 15 years.
But Francesca is the 1st British Women to represent GB at the Youth Olympic Games 2014, 1st British Women to medal at YOG's (silver) and now 1st British Woman ever to win the Junior (U21) World Championships in her first Junior year.
Point Two Jackets have played an immense role in preparing Francesca for this win (perhaps without you fully realising how much you have helped) and I would like to formally acknowledge this and offer the Summers Family's thanks for your efforts and protection. Point Two thank you. You have protected Francesca now over several years and a part of this victory belongs to you - "Maker of World Champions !"
Francesca achieved this with a good swim, a great safe ride, a fantastic fence and a 'stonking' Run Shoot Combined. The part played by Point Two can not be overlooked.
Francesca never rides 'ever' with out her Point Two jacket on"

Point Two are delighted by the recent rule changes from British Eventing and The Pony Club regarding wearing an Air Jacket without a traditional body protector underneath for certain disciplines/phases. We hope these new rule changes will encourage those who previously have worn no safety equipment for dressage, show jumping etc. to invest in Airbag Technology.
Point Two are proud to be the only company that manufactures products to the following triple standard:
• SATRA M38 - meeting body protector requirements for airbags for Equestrian use
• The only fully integrated hybrid with airbag and BETA level 3 body protector
• Latest standard for motorcycle airbags EN 1621-4
All Point Two Air Jackets have superior airbag coverage including behind the trigger and canister mechanism and, since 2012, all Point Two Air Jackets come with the additional protection of level 1 foam pad behind the trigger and the opposite side for an even, comfortable fit.
Point Two strongly recommend checking with your Air Jacket manufacturer to insure your jacket has an airbag behind the trigger.

Important Information - The Pony Club rule number 16. IV. Body Protectors is immediately amended with regard to Air Jackets. Previously it was always compulsory to wear a body protector if the Member was wearing an air jacket.
With immediate effect this rule now only applies in Cross Country and Pony Racing. In any other circumstances air jackets may now be worn without a body protector.

Some exciting news hot off the press!!!!
We are proud to announce that with effect from the 1st March 2015 KM Elite Products Limited have been appointed exclusive distributors in the UK and Europe for Point Two Air Jackets.
Since launching their first Air Vest in 2009, Point Two have continued to push the boundaries of safety standards and are the only supplier of Air Jackets who have passed the SATRA Standard M38 test.

They continue to strive to make this standard compulsory across the industry and to develop new and innovative products led by customer demand and feedback.

Point Two would like to remind our customers of the importance of Air Jacket Servicing. Point Two recommends that all jackets are serviced once a year, after six inflations or after a particularly heavy impact. An annual service is required to maintain lifetime warranty.
Servicing includes trigger clean, shell wash and removal and full pressure testing of the airbag £47.00 incl. VAT + return postage.
We are also able to change the colour of your ProAir at time of servicing for £95.00 incl. VAT + P&P (service included)
All Point Two air jackets come with a life time warranty on the airbag component. The warranty is subject to the jacket being serviced annually by Point Two and if any reduction in the airbag performance is detected during inflation the airbag will be replaced free of charge for the customer.
You can print off a service order form by clicking here and print off an address label by clicking here then all you need to do is pack up your jacket and send it in! We recommend sending your jacket by recorded delivery and please don't include your canister. We know many of you don't like to be without the safety of your Point Two for too long so we aim to turn jackets around within 48hrs!
Point Two air jackets must be serviced by Point Two Head Office only, otherwise the customer voids the lifetime warranty on the jacket. Only the manufacturer is able to carry out this service. All of our UK competitors are franchises, so are unable to carry out this service. Take a quick look at some before and after pictures.
Please do not return jackets with canisters, Royal Mail reserve the right to destroy any parcels containing gas canisters. If you are required to return your air jacket with canisters please contact Point Two on 01403 732129 for further advice.
