I have been asked by serveral of my students to add this page to our web site for public
education.  This stable is convinced of the value in
wearing equestrian helmets for every
no matter where or what style of riding we may be doing.

The modern helmets for horseback riding are so comfortable and effective there is no
excuse I can fathom as adequate to justify not using them.  No, bicycle helmets are not the
same, and no, they are not as good. But ! they are better than no helmet at all. Please consider
though the reason you would choose a bicycle helmet.... is it because of cost?

How can you measure the extra cost of an equestrian helmet as compared to the life or
quaility of life for you or your child?
if you would like to have MORE evidence that EVERY ONE needs a Helmet
                                              Betty's quotes---
Western riders just cannot wear helmets cuz they just are not
huh................and tennis shoes, shorts and ball caps are?
Helmets interfer with my ability to sense my horse.......................
huh................maybe you should tune your horse sense and your common
sense, do you expect you will be able to sense him better with dribble
running down your chin from your wheel chair!  
Borrowed quote---
"If you think your hair style is more important than your brain.... maybe you
are right!"
Helmets are usually available at the farm both new and used or we can custom order for
Helmets owned by the farm are offered to you for loan for the 1st - 10th lesson. After
that you may continue to borrow a farm helmet for a surcharge of $2/lesson/rider or we
can secure one for you.  Some Helmet models  are not recommended or allowed at
Breezy Bluff .
                      Please be sure we approve of your helmet choice!                                
(Bike, TROXEL SPORT  and IRH ELITE Helmets will
NOT be Approved
(due to inferior long term protection )
