ridiculous bibs), but I've been quite impressed by the momentum that the Riders4Helmets campaign has gathered over the last few months.
This coming weekend they are holding a symposium in Florida (a wise location, given the weather!).
I must also confess to having previously been complacent about wearing a riding hat sometimes when working on the flat, until a friend suffered a horrific accident, being bowled over by a horse whilst on the ground, and requiring 7 hours of surgery to place 2 metal plates in his head and the need to rebuild his eye socket! Since then I have always worn a hat whilst riding, no matter how well I know my own horse.
Anyway, I have nothing intelligent to add to what Riders4Helmets already say about their campaign. So all I can do is encourage you to visit their website, support the symposium, and at the very least, wear your riding hat every time you climb in the saddle!
