Riders wearing safety helmets
Back Issue Focus Issue 14 Issue 19

If you ride without a safety helmet does it mean you really are at greater risk of brain injury from a fall

Some German scientists have now been able to put actual significant figures & evidence forward & concluded horse riders’ brain injury risk is “5-fold higher” without a helmet:

We ran an article in Issue 14 by a group from the US called Helmet Tough, who were raising awareness for increased potential brain injury caused by riders not wearing helmets & preferring to wear more traditional ‘Cowboy Hats’.

Dawn Champion who is on the cover of  Issue 19 with her horse Lasair, wears a riding helmet with a visor around it, which gives the rider more of a Western look without compromising on safety.

Always better to be safer than sorry!

Happy hard hatting!
