Riders4Helmets.com has teamed up with leading helmet manufacturers to host the eighth International Helmet Awareness Day on Saturday, September 16 and Sunday 17. Building on the success of International Helmet Awareness Day 2016, participating retailers all over the world will be offering discounts on helmets on these dates.
International Helmet Awareness Day was founded in 2010 as a direct result of US Olympian Courtney King Dye’s accident, with the aim of educating equestrians on the benefits of wearing a properly fitting, secured and certified helmet.
The United States Eventing Association (USEA) Board of Governors has approved three proposals for the funding of safety and education projects through the funds which were set aside last year. These resources have become available through sound financial management of the Association.
