Virginia Tech has put together a great resource for equestrians everywhere! These ratings can help you understand how protected you are in your current helmet, and help you decide what helmet to buy in the future!
With sponsorship from Jacqueline Mars, USHJA, USEF, USEA, we have rated a total of 40 equestrian helmets using the STAR evaluation system. Our impact tests evaluate a helmet’s ability to reduce linear and rotational acceleration of the head from a range of head impacts a rider might experience. Helmets with more stars provide a reduction in concussion risk for these impacts compared to helmets with fewer stars.
