5 TIPS FOR SAFE HORSE RIDING

 
We all know that horse riding is an amazing sport, but it is also a dangerous one, classified among those with medium-high risk of accident. Whilst it is impossible to be sure to avoid falls from a horse, observing a few basic rules can allow you to ride more safely and thus reduce the risk of serious accidents. Here are the 5 essential rules for protecting the most vulnerable part of our bodies:

First tip: WEAR A HELMET

When you go horse riding, it is of fundamental importance that you wear a riding helmet.

 

Second tip: CHOOSE AN APPROVED HELMET

It is not enough just to wear a helmet: it must be an approved helmet.

 

Third tip: CHOOSE A HELMET OF THE RIGHT SIZE

Wearing a helmet of the right size is of fundamental importance because, if it is not the right size, its primary function of protection loses effectiveness.

 

Fourth tip: SECURE THE CHIN STRAP

Wearing a helmet without securing the chin strap is like not wearing one at all.

 

Fifth tip: REPLACE YOUR HELMET AFTER A FALL

If, after a fall, your helmet is damaged, it is essential that you have it checked and, if necessary, replaced.
