Velvet fabric fur trim lining Lycra/Spandex extends over your head. The visor pocket goes over hats with integrated hems. Preserve your headgear and show your colours! Those hat caps cover your riding hat to keep it from getting dirty and dusty.
Horse riding & Helmets: The facts are tough.
Do you know that 7,000,000 individuals take part in equine activity in the USA every year? They are a bunch of drivers, and whether you drive in English or Westerns, you are just as prone to injury. Heights above the floor, the incidence of drops and the variable set by the horses themselves provide an atmosphere in which the impact of the horses on their heads is relatively high.
In spite of a driver's manoeuvrability, it is often not possible to adapt one's own posture during a crash in order to prevent high levels of power, falling heads on the floor, rocks or other obstacles. In order to help horsemen better understanding the dangers of riding and the importance of protecting helmets, the Troxel President and Founding President, Dr. Richard Timms, has put together a shortlist of clinical facts from a series of riding surveys.
70,000 patients are admitted to ERs for riding related trauma, which is expected to be 2,300 a year. Headache damage accounts for 18% of ER casualty cases. Lifelong drivers reporting driving six or more days a year have a 13% life expectancy in hospital due to a riding accident.
Headache is the most frequent cause of hospitalisation and death. It seems that the risks of injury to the heads in English riding are similar to those in Westernriding. Severe brain injury and death are more frequent on violent rides like Jockey's and Eventer's. Fatalities are uncommon when using an ASTM-certified hardhat on non-aggressive rides.
Most rider bruises are due to your height above the floor. If you drive more aggressively, such as in jumps and races, the risk of crushing you. Usually a fall due to unforeseen circumstances can cause damage to the skull. But about 20 per cent of them are not riding or are spectators.
There is a greater chance of injuries based on your accumulated driving times and less on your technical knowledge. Shocks made up 8% of the E.R. information, a higher incidence than in many other large sportsmanships. Most drivers with a unique cerebral convulsion solve themselves without any remaining problem.
Surveys in the field of human rights show that every year in the USA there are widespread cases of riding related death. The use of an ASTM-certified crash helmet significantly reduces the number of casualties. There are many fold more wounds to the heads for every death. Recurring trauma to the heads (or TBI's) and their effects are unusual when riding as opposed to contacting sport like Soccer.
It occurs with drivers who are often at high risks. Certificated headgear is a powerful means of absorption of most of the shock to the floor or items such as a stone or horse's heel. Helmet are certificated for their capability to absorbe power, covering the cranium and staying in place.
It is advisable to carry certificated hard hats. It should not be used to protect the skull. Drivers wearing ASTM-certified headgear seldom sustain serious injury to the driver's heads or die from a crash, but there are certain exclusions, especially in the case of violent driving.
