It may still be a couple weeks out, but a post yesterday on Ovation’s Facebook page reminded us that June 9 is a date worth circling on our calendar: International Helmet Awareness Day.
The first National Helmet Awareness Day was held in 2010, followed by the first International Helmet Awareness Day in 2011. The campaign was propelled into action when Riders4Helmets.com teamed up with leading helmet manufacturers to host an event that not only raised awareness of helmet safety, but also motivated participating retailers all over the world to offer discounts on helmets to equestrians on that day. Visit www.riders4helmets.com/
Riders4Helmets will also be hosting a series of live webinars at www.riders4helmets.com that will feature a variety of guests including U.S. Olympian Courtney King-Dye. Equestrians will be able to ask guests real time questions. For updates on International Helmet Awareness Day 2012, please visit www.riders4helmets.com on a regular basis.
Ovation is proud to be involved with the International Helmet Awareness Day campaign, and we’re proud to have a company with such integrity as a sponsor of Horse Nation. Be sure to visit Ovation’s website to view its selection of safe, stylish helmets, in addition to the many other around-the-barn and in-the-saddle products that Ovation offers.
Go Riding (in a helmet, of course).
