Horseback Riding Helmets for AdultsHelmets for adults
Myth 8 about riding helmets
I would like to refer to some of the current legends I am hearing about riding helmets: It is only with behavioural difficulties that you can be cautious. Well, guesses what: ALL of them are potentially hazardous. Booking, bold, kicking, re-aring, trip, spooking.... those are things that even the best prepared rider can do surprisingly in the right situations.
Dropping from a stationary stallion can be potentially damaging to the human mind - a drop of only two legs can lead to lasting cerebral injury. Most disastrous crash against a hard hat I have ever seen happened when my veteran girlfriend dropped on her 20-year-old school master, one of the surest ponies I know.
Grown-ups do not have to use helmets. Certainly adults have the liberty to make their own choices, even those that are dangerous. However, this does not mean that adults are free from the risk of injuries when driving. Although the only purpose for an grown-up driver to be wearing a hardhat is to be a good example to his children, I think that's it!
The only thing worse to do is to have helmets on. Every horseman has the ability to drop. In fact, International Helmet Awareness Day began after Courtney King Dye, a young pro-jumper, suffered a serious scalp wound when a stumbled on a shallow riding area.
In addition, any individual who has had a cerebral convulsion (e.g. by riding horses) is more at greater risk of severe injuries to the brain. All you need is a hard hat if you drop off. Being someone who has grown up on a very bad bangs, I have learnt that there are other ways to injure your mind than to shed.
There was a hard hat protecting me when my bangs ran me under trees, when my ponies stumbled and fell, and when I was on the floor with my ancestors. Well, if I' m gonna put on a hat, it means I don't believe my mare. Also the best riders or the best steed makes errors. The use of a hat will not insult your equine, nor will it have a bad effect on your interrelations.
Your own riding security has nothing to do with whether you rely on your own horses or not; it all has to do with your own personal and caring for you. If I' m wearin' a hat, I' m gonna do worse in the contest. If your sport is right, then you can either select a new sport or be proud to be a helmet-wearing trend-setter.
Do you recall when Charlotte Dujardin won an Olympian golden coin with a hard coat topcoat in the world of training - a discipline that has wanted the classic topcoat for many years? Heaters are too much money. I must admit: Design helmets can be quite costly. You don't need a hard hat. No. When your ASTM (American Society for Testing Materials), SEI (Safety Equipment Institute) certified and correctly fitted, your hardhat is good enough.
The $40-$60 payment for a headpiece is much less expensive than the payment of the cost of treatment for a crippling scalp lesion. These one helmets will last forever. If your headgear strikes the floor (in the event of a crash or fall), or if it comes into contact with the floor, please change it according to the manufacturer's instructions. Helms don't stop you, they don't keep you back.
By 2012 my Haflinger Pip and I participated and won the Extreme Cowboy Race, and I was the only driver to have worn a Western theme pad.
