In Honor of National Helmet Awareness Day

My helmet is at least 4 years old, I've fallen with it, etc.  All the reasons for needing a new one so I decided today was the perfect day to go shopping at my favorite tack store:

I can't say enough about the staff at this store they are extremely helpful and have a broad range of products.

After answering a couple of easy questions and an equally easy sizing I ended up with this:

From here I  enjoyed this view for over an hour as I rode around the farm...

All of which made me feel like this...


  1. Good move to get a new helmet!

  2. I've had mine for 4 years also, but mine has (knock wood) never taken an impact. I don't get on a horse without one. I'm all about preserving the few brain cells I have left after my misspent youth.

  3. The helmet looks like it will keep your head protected and cool. I just got a new one too. I've never gotten on a horse without a helmet and it's a good thing too, there have been a few falls over the years. I hope there are none in the future but you never know.

  4. Didn't know there was a National Helmet Awareness Day. Looks like you picked out a nice one. Glad you had such a great ride :)


Happy Trails!
