National Helmet Awareness Day.
Some retailers and some manufacturers are offering a discount if helmets are purchased on this date.
Now is a good time to get a helmet if you don't already have one!
Now is a perfect time to begin using a helmet every time you ride or drive a horse.
Helmets have saved people's lives, even when doing groundwork.
For me, donning a helmet is just about as automatic as putting on my pants. My early riding years included Pony Club where helmets were required. I once had a nifty helmet that had a deep 2" dent in it where I hit a fence post on a cross country event. What if that had been my head? That dent was a sobering reminder of the importance of wearing a helmet.
Take the poll on my page. It's just under Pippin's picture on the right.
