2019 International Helmet Awareness Day

Riders4Helmets International Helmet Awareness Day is scheduled to take place September 14th and 15th, 2019 and equestrians from all over the globe are getting ready to shop helmets on sale from a variety of brands.

Founded in 2010, Riders4Helmet’s was designed to educate equestrians on the benefits of wearing a properly fitted and secured, certified helmet.  According to their website, Helmet Awareness Day has become an international (IHAD) event which expanded to 19 countries in 2017.

This year, we’re going bigger than ever before! Check out our dealer locator page for a list of tack stores near you.

We’re counting down the days until 2019 International Helmet Awareness Day by none other than a giveaway! Each day visit our Facebook or Instagram for Trauma Void Trivia.  The following business day, we’ll be posting the answer in the comments. In order to be eligible for our 31 days of giveaways (August 14-September 13th, 2019), you must follow us on social media, live in the United States, and answer the trivia question correctly, within 24 hours of its post time. Must be 18 or older to win. Some exlcusions may apply.

Education is important to us, so we’re hoping that through our trivia, we can help spread the news about the importance of helmet usage. Will you help us by telling your friends and family about it?

Trauma Void helmets are not only slick and sleek, but the trendsetter of the MIPS movement in the United States Equestrian Community. 

Our helmets boast a variety of colors, finishes and sizes and come in two models, the EQ3 and the Lynx. While both models contain MIPS Brain Protection System, there are a few differences between the EQ3 and Lynx.  The EQ3 comes in Black, Navy, and Brown in both smooth and microfiber finishes, while the Lynx comes in black. Additionally, the EQ3 comes in more traditional sizes (6 ½-7 ½), each size has a round and long-oval liner that comes included with the helmet.  The Lynx comes in sizes Small, Medium, and Large all of which have a retention system for an adjustable fit.

As a mom and I rider and instructor I always stressed the importance of a helmet. I always wore a helmet and made sure that my daughter and students did also.

I started wearing a helmet barrel racing several years ago and now wear it every time I ride. The stigma needs to end, especially in the western riding world

I didn't see a question to answer. I always ride with a helmet whether I'm riding english (flat and jumping) or gaming ( barrel racing, pole bending, etc).

I love my Traumavoid. I feel the technology is the safest on the market. It is also very reasonably priced.

As a previous pony club member, a helmet should always be worn. When your riding and even doing simply working from the ground. Even if you think it wouldn't happen, accidents will always occur when working as an equestrian.

I admit I never wore a helmet during my western discipline days but now riding English, I never go without. Sometimes depending on the groundwork I will use it there also.

As a rider and Nurse Practitioner, I would not go with a helmet- EVER!!! I have seen may head injuries in my practice and when counseling others always recommend head protection! I had a fall once that broke my helmet but it it saved my brain! I’m so grateful for the advancement in head protection and now the added styling is a bonus! #alwaysprotectyourmelon
