Concussion Resources for a Safer Sport

Ever-focused on a safer sport, the USEA maintains a list of resources regarding concussion, head trauma and helmet safety. The USEA maintains that all riders in all disciplines, whether schooling at home or at competition, should wear ASTM/SEI approved protective headgear (Charles Owen is the Official Riding Helmet of the USEA), and it is mandatory in competition.
