EPISODE NOTES

In this episode we have a honest and open conversation about helmet use in the equestrian world and its many disciplines, discuss the whys behind when we choose not to wear a helmet, and have an informed conversation with Betsy MacFarlane about concussion awareness. Betsy is a Barrel Racing competitor, trainer and coach - in her professional life she serves her community as a Paramedic. Having experienced multiple head injuries she has become passionate about concussion awareness and helmet safety. The conversation takes place on Clubhouse where we have the opportunity to open the conversation up to other equestrians and professionals on the topic. Some real gold nuggets are dropped in this episode!

Whether you choose to wear a helmet or not, this conversation is for you. We open an honest conversation that is founded in offering information for everyone to make choices that align best with their own values and needs. This conversation does not shame or blame riders. It is intended to open an important dialogue between riders.
