As all riders know, as much as we love and trust our horses, sometimes accidents do happen. We put boots and pads on our horses to protect them from injury, it only makes sense that we should also take the time to protect ourselves from potential damage. It doesn’t cost much, and with so many options available, there are helmets for every style and discipline.
We support protective head gear, do you?
