Charles Owen Signs On To Sponsor Riders4Helmets Safety Symposium

Charles Owen is delighted to announce its sponsorship of the fourth annual Riders4Helmets Safety Symposium which is scheduled for February 2nd in Lexington, KY. Charles Owen has been involved with the Riders4Helmets campaign since its inception in 2010, and is thrilled to have the opportunity to continue the partnership of this very important cause.


The Riders4Helmets Safety Symposium is being held in conjunction with the 2013 Kentucky Round-Up at the Kentucky Horse Park. This event will attract an even wider range of equestrians as the Round-Up will introduce a new group of people to the Riders4Helmets campaign. In addition, the symposium will be the first since Riders4Helmets received the impressive invitation to partner with the FEI in its Global Safety Initiative in 2013.


Roy Burek, Managing Director of Charles Owen said, "Making the best helmet is no good if riders don't wear them. Riders4Helmets has helped educate equestrians about the need to wear helmets when you least expect to have an accident. These symposia create the forum where thoughts can be voiced, experiences can be shared and progress can be made."
