International Helmet Awareness Day (IHAD) is upon us once again this weekend! Riders4Helmets created this campaign back in 2010 and since then has worked to encourage more equestrians to mind their melon when mounting up. IHAD brings a host of sales from retailers world-wide, so if you’re due to replace your helmet (which you need to do after a fall or at minimum every five years – whichever comes first!) then this is a great weekend to go shopping! You can search for a participating retailer near you with this map. I am a huge fan of my Tipperary 8500 Sportage and you can bet I never ever get in the saddle without my trusty brain bucket!
