Ah-helmet, Chelsea

Chelsea Reich

My ah-helmet moment was before I even started riding. When I was six I was in a terrible car accident and got a bad brain ah helmetinjury. It took years of therapy but finally I was able to walk, talk, and do normal stuff again. I found my love for horses then and ever since have always had horses.

I always, always wear my helmet when I am riding because I know how fragile the brain is. I have had my share of horse accidents too but one was really bad. The horse flipped over on me and broke my hip, pelvis, tail bone and some other bones would’ve probably been worse had I not been wearing my helmet. I don’t care that people think they look dorky I would rather be safe then sorry.

Horses are my life.

Great news, readers! We’re teaming up with another top-notch company to bring you a series of spectacular giveaways.

We’re kicking off a six-month giveaway series with Troxel this week with the hope that our readers will keep their noggins safe during every riding season. The first helmet giveaway in the line-up is perfect for trial riders, and is actually the same helmet for which Dr. Peters chose to ditch his cowboy hat.

To toss your hat into the ring for a chance at a Troxel Sierra, send in a paragraph or two describing your ah-helmet moment (think ah-ha moment!) and a picture. When and why did you make the conscious decision to wear a helmet every ride (or for most rides)?

For the first round, we’ll accept entries May 14-20. Enter by contacting us with Sierra_Tan_2015description of your ah-helmet moment, OR send us a message on our Facebook page. The entries will be posted on NickerNews May 21. A week’s voting will run through midnight May 28. The entrant with the most votes will receive a brown Troxel Sierra helmet.
