Safety Tip…

An equestrian helmet must always be replaced after a fall or collision. The impact forces on your head during a fall are absorbed by the helmet. In another impact in the same location, the equestrian helmet can no longer fulfil its protective function 100%. Please note that depending on the force and angle of impact the helmet can even break, and should do so in order to keep the impact forces away from your head.
