Riding horses can be dangerous business. Each time you get on a horse’s back to ride it is unpredictable. The horse may become spooked, irritated, or may just be having a bad day and serious consequences can result. Each year over 70,000 riders are taken to the Emergency Room for equestrian related injuries. Of those hospital visits, about 12,000 are diagnosed as head injuries. Studies show that one hour of horseback riding is equivalent to one hour of riding on a motorcycle.
Falling from a horse can cause many different injuries, one of which is a concussion. A concussion is explained as direct impact to the head that can cause moderate to severe brain damage. Concussions may result in bruising or injury to the nervous system. Side effects range from dizziness and vomiting to memory loss and in extreme cases permanent brain damage. One simple way to help prevent equestrian related head injuries is by wearing a well fitting, certified equestrian riding helmet. An equestrian riding helmet is made to absorb the shock and energy and reduce the impact of falling on the brain. Equestrian Helmets are engineered to compress and crush when impacted. A crushed helmet after a large fall is not a defective helmet; the helmet is showing the visual signs of the impact, and what could have happened to you during a severe fall.
Equestrian Helmets come in all shapes, sizes, styles, and patterns. The right helmet should be certified for horseback riding, meet your needs and riding style, and have a proper fit. When searching for helmets start the search by measuring your head an inch above your eyebrows and above your ears. As you are being fitted for your helmet, wear your hair how you will commonly wear it during riding activities. Your visor should be one inch from your eyebrow, and the helmet should sit level on your head, covering your forehead. The chin strap should be snug, and when you move your head the helmet should mirror the movement; not wobble. A proper fitting helmet becomes less noticeable after a short period of wear. If you are experiencing a headache, your helmet may be too tight.
Equestrian Riding helmets are another clothing accessory in the western community. Helmets can be found any many patterns and colors. Helmet covers are a fun and inexpensive way to change with each of your outfits in the show ring. For a limited time receive 15% off any helmet purchase.
