Wear an Equestrian Helmet!

Before you ride without a helmet - did you know?

  • 60 percent of equestrian related deaths are the result of a head injury. 
  • Head injuries may result in concussions as well as bleeding in or around the brain, which can be life threatening.
  • Horses can gallop at up to 40 mph. Your skull can be shattered by an impact of only 4 to 6 mph.
  • When you ride, you are eight feet or more above the ground. A fall from as little as two feet can cause permanent brain damage.
  • Other protective helmets such as bike helmets are NOT designed for equestrian use and do NOT provide the correct protection in case of a fall from a horse.

A properly fitted ASTM/SEI (American Society for Testing and Materials/Safety Equipment Institute) certified equestrian helmet can prevent death and reduce the severity of head injuries resulting from equestrian accidents.
