Equestrian Safety Program with Helmet Fitting in Parker, CO
Did you know that Parker Adventist Hospital offers an Equestrian Safety Program? Well, they do! This class is great for adults just getting into riding, kids that need to learn about safety while riding, or anyone that rides needing a brush up on safety while riding. During the class (which lasts under an hour) you learn about how injury can affect you and why wearing a helmet while riding is so important. After the class, the facilitator fits you for a helmet and you get to take it home with you. They only ask for a minimal donation to help keep their program running for other equestrians in the area.
There are Rules to Riding in an Arena!
Unless you are fortunate enough to have your own arena at home for private use; you most likely have to share arena space with other riders. And a riding arena (like any other sports arena) has rules to follow. But in horseback riding those arena rules are not always evident or clearly stated. This is a guide to help you ride courteously in an arena with other people (no matter the discipline; aka Western, Trail, Dressage, Jumper, etc.). Not only does this help with traffic, it ensures the safety of all riders and horses in the arena.
