How many states have a helmet law for minors?
If anyone who knows of or lives in a state with such a law could please post the state I would appreciate it. I am trying to convince AQHA that youth riders should be required to wear a true ASTM certified helmet instead of the "hunt caps" that are popular. I really think it is time for them to step into line with other associations. FYI AQHA does require them in over fences classes, but I feel that minors should be required to wear them in all classes (having witnessed some horrific accidents at AQHA shows in flat classes). If kids just grow up wearing them, it becomes no big deal to them, but the "fashion" aspect of helmets really should not be allowed (in my opinion) at AQHA shows for youth riders. TIA
