Friday News & Notes from Ovation

Ovation is a proud sponsor of the 2013 Riders4Helmets Safety Symposium, to be held on Saturday, Feb. 2 at the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park. Field trip, anyone?

From Riders4Helmets, “The Helmet Safety Symposium will bring together representatives from various corners of the equestrian world to discuss the importance of wearing helmets, rider safety and education, and to improve helmet designs and more. The event will provide a series of short lectures and panel discussions throughout the day. Many in attendance will also sit in on the panels, including equestrians, helmet manufacturers, equestrian organizations, and neurosurgeons.”

Get full details about the event here.

Riders4Helmets was founded in 2010 after Olympic dressage rider Courtney King Dye suffered a traumatic head injury from a riding accident. She was in a coma for a month following the accident and continues to undergo rehabilitation. Here’s a moving video from Courtney that opened a previous Symposium:
