International Helmet Awareness Day - Saturday September 17, 2016 - Up to 50% off*

Dover Saddlery is proud to help support by taking part in International Helmet Awareness Day on September 17, 2016. The Riders4Helmets campaign was founded in 2010 as a direct result of American Olympic dressage rider Courtney King-Dye's accident-during which a young horse she was schooling fell, leaving King-Dye (who was not wearing a helmet) with severe head injuries - with the aim of educating equestrians on the benefits of wearing a properly fitting, secured, and certified helmet.

International Helmet Awareness Day is not just an opportunity for equestrians to purchase a helmet at a special discount, more importantly it is an opportunity for equestrians to be educated. Riders4Helmets will be live streaming 'Get Educated' webinars via on September 17, in which equestrians will be able to ask a variety of speakers real-time questions. The webinars will feature authorities, including leading equestrians and Olympians, in fields such as:

  • Traumatic brain injury and concussion;
  • Psychology (why equestrians choose not to wear a helmet);
  • Neuro physiotherapy;
  • Helmet manufacturers;
  • Traumatic brain injury survivors; and
  • Helmet testing agencies

*Discounts are from MSRP. All helmets priced as marked. Offers are for September 17, 2016 at Dover Saddlery only. Select styles only. See Helmet Notice, Disclaimer & Warning at
