Horse Podcast Ep 39: International Helmet Awareness Day Episode

Equestrian Adventuresses Travel and Horse Podcast Ep 39 - International Helmet Awareness Day

On account of the 11th Helmet Awareness Day which always happens on a weekend in September, Heather and Ute are talking about the importance of wearing a helmet, sharing some of their personal experience and discussing how to fit a helmet properly, what you should look for while buying one, how to care for helmets and how often you should replace them. So it is a very interesting episode loaded with information.

Tips about buying a helmet & caring for it!

In recent years, most equestrians have realised the need to wear a helmet as we realised when asking about this topic in the EQA Facebook group and in other equestrian groups. There are no good reasons for not wearing one but do you know how to properly fit one, what you need to look at when you buy one and when to replace your old one? In today’s episode we talk about all these topics so that you can check yourself if your head is protected the best way possible.
