Riding Helmets and Safety - Every Time, Every Ride!
At Equestrian Collections, we are firm advocates of riding safety. While no piece of safety equipment can keep you safe all the time, we believe that all riders should wear ASTM/SEI certified riding helmets any time they are mounted, and protective vests when appropriate to do so.
Horseback Riding Helmets have come a long way since the velvet "hard hats" of yesteryear. English Show Helmets maintain the traditional look of the velvet hunt cap, but are padded, comfortable, vented for airflow and MUCH safer than the old caps.
Body Protectors are similarly improving. They are no longer stiff and restricting, and many riders find them so comfortable they wear them all the time.
For Eventing, anyone mounted on a horse must wear a ASTM/SEI approved helmet at all times when on competition grounds at U.S. nationally rated eventing competitions. Approved Body Protectors are required for cross country phrases, and allowed for show jumping.
As of March 1 2011, for Dressage, anyone mounted on a horse must wear protective headgear, except those rider age 18 and over while on horses competing only in FEI levels and test at the Prix St. Georges level and above.
And the Western rider is no longer left out in regards to riding helmets. Western Riding Helmets are required in many youth speed and rodeo events, and increasingly even the adults are donning helmets and body protectors for rodeo events.
