Riding helmets: FAQS
The use of riding hats is becoming more and more widespread. Here are some of the most frequently asked question about riding hats and their use. What's the point of wearing a hat? In the USA, riding is the main cause of sports-related cerebral lesions (Winkler et al., 2016).
The use of a hard hat diminishes the likelihood and seriousness of such wounds. For more information on the injuries stats, see the Equestrian Injury Statistics in Horseback Riders series. Decrease Helms Decrease Headache? The use of headgear in horse-related activity significantly lowers the risks of trauma and significantly lowers the number of admissions to hospitals, as well as the incidence of infections and the seriousness of severe brain damage (Bond, Christoph, & Rodgers, 1995).
You can find more information on this subject in the horse injury statistics section. Which means for a hardhat to be ASTM or SEI certificated? The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) adopted the 1988 Horse Sports and Horseback Riding Standard No. F as the first standard for rider-headwear.
The majority of today's sold hats surpass the security standard established by these organisations, but it is still good to verify and ensure that the hat contains a sticker that certifies that the standard is being complied with. Are you looking for a harness that complies with both ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) and SEI (Safety Equipment Institute) equestrian sport equipment specifications?
More information on this subject and how to read certificate tags can be found in the How Helmas Work section. May I use my bicycle hardhat for riding? No. Bicycle hats are manufactured to various standard. Bicycle helms are often similar in structure to riding helms, but concentrate on the most common type of bicycle fall via the handlebar.
Riding helms are designed to resist side impact better and cope with falling from greater altitudes. Most of the few extra bucks you can afford on a hard hat made for the profession are well invested. Whom should wearing a hardhat while driving? We recommend the use of safety hats for anyone sitting on a bangs or horses.
Horsemen of all age groups and ability grades have sustained severe brain wounds. For more information on the link between expertise and rate of wounding, see Equestrian Injury Statistics. What effect does the choice of older, seasoned drivers to use a helmet have on younger drivers? Horse riding and the use of the helmet by families have been recognised as influencing the attitude towards them.
As a result of a survey of the publications of the horse organisation, it was found that young people were represented more often than grown-ups with a helmet and only 15% of older people with a helmet on their horses (Jennissen, Waheed, Harland, & Denning, 2012). In addition, through a focal group research, the scientists found that".... the perceptions of young people are that when grown-ups do not use them, they need to be designed for novice horsemen or just for children" (Reed, Novak, & Heath, 1998).
The use of a helmet by an expert rider can help to encourage the use of a helmet by young people. Is there a need for a helmet in the West? An equine-related lesions survey in a country town in Canada, where westernriding dominated, showed similar figures for the number of westernriding accidents in the nape of the nose (17%) to those in other equestrian sports (Thompson & von Hollen, 1996).
Shocks accounted for 38% of rodent wounds (Hammett, 1997). Scientists who review information from many trials have argued in favour of greater use of protection equipment in all equestrian work. Do you recommend the use of safety jackets in your daily work at the farm? Helmannahme in the countryside can be even more important than in city areas, as the travelling season to health care in the countryside is extended.
In New Mexico, a survey found that many horse-related deaths occurred in isolated places where late entry to care could have caused deaths ("Lathrop", 2007). The penchant for cowboys hats may have slower acceptance of hats in the countryside. But there are now hats that look like cowboys' hats.
Furthermore, some horsemen decorate their hats to make them look like cowboys' hats. A number of headgear brands also offer rims for additional solar control specifically for their headgear that do not impair its safety function. Do you have to be wearing a hat if you don't want to jump?
Paralyzing lesions can result from flat work and even walking. She had a trauma in 2010 after her stumbled and dropped without a hard hat during school. Three-year later, on April 1, 2013, the United States Equestrian Federation demanded ASTM/SEI-approved crash barriers for all classes of youngsters ("Dressage News", 2013).
Is the use of a hard hat a hazard of sunstroke / fatigue due to bad breath? Producers have reacted to equestrian sports feedbacks on the comforts, weights, aeration, appearance and costs of their hats to improve acceptance. Today's hats are light and well aired. Investigators who were measuring the thermal stress in Australia ranchers who wear hats or hats found no differences in the thermal stress between the two kinds of headwear (Taylor, Caldwell, & Dyer, 2008).
Does the use of a hardhat impair my health? The producers make Helmme even lighter. One large headgear can weigh between 1-2 lbs, which is as easy as some felt hats. Weighing about 10-11 lbs, the mean person's mind makes the driver's mind unimportant to the driver's wellbeing.
What is the position of doctors and non-medical practicians on the use of riding hats? ASTM/SEI approved headgear is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics for all organisations that encourage or penalise riding. There is also a recommendation of the American Medical Association for all riding sports use. Does the use of a headgear protection against all my wounds?
The use of a hardhat does not make a rider secure at all. As a matter of fact, headgear was not found to provide protection against face injury. Headache can still happen to those who wear headgear, especially if these headgear does not comply with security requirements or is incorrectly attached and is thrown off balance in a crash (Zuckerman et al., 2015).
Skills and security trainings are also important to reduce the frequency of injuries. Although 56% of the riders interviewed in Washington State said they felt more secure when they wore a hat (Condie et al., 1993). Could headgear replace security education? Helms are no replacement for the comprehension of equine behaviour or other security trainings.
The conclusion of a equestrian education programme is a protection element in the reduction of equestrian sport violations. A North Carolina 4-H Youths survey, for example, has shown that participation in riding classes and one' s own experiences with horses have led to better results in terms of security competencies (Beck, 2008). Which behaviour of the animal is most likely to cause harm to humans?
To understand why ponies can haunt or foretell a haunt would help to reduce injury. There were two trials, one in a municipality in Canada where westernriding is predominant and one in Kentucky, which found that 27% of horse-related injury was the outcome of spooky (Camargo et al., 2015; Thompson & von Hollen, 1996).
Spookiness was the most common cause of injuries to horses in both of them. Therefore, the main cause of equine related injuries is something unforeseeable. How will the hats of the years to come look like? Maybe they don't always look like this. A US equestrian hard hat producer has received a subsidy under the H-Health Challenge Programme for the development of a new fabric with highly effective cushioning characteristics.
In Europe, inflationable bicycle Helmets are made using movement detectors similar to those in smartphones that measure increments or turn the display when the telephone is rotated. An appropriate US license has been applied for use in a helmet. Riding hats have a story of using the same technologies that were first designed for bicycle hats, so it is possible that this is in the equine industry's futures.
Interaction with ponies in the way that best enables you to successfully prevent trauma requires exercise, environmental consciousness and an appreciation of the horse's behaviour.
