    I saw her warming up yesterday (did not know who she was, noticed and pointed it out to my husband. Cheers to her.

    That is so wonderful. Thank you Jacqueline for starting what I hope is a new and permanent trend in dressage!

    At least one other competitor also showed in a helmet.

    I was disappointed at how many h/j riders were still schooling in a ball cap as well.

    I like the look of the helmet. I think she is quite "sporting" in appearance. Top hats are lovely, but to me it's like a bull rider with a cowboy hat, wear it when you're OFF the bull/horse.

    Congratulations to Jacqueline Brooks!!!!!

    Kudos to her! I had the chance to meet her and her lovely mom at the World Cup in Vegas in 2007 *i think it was 2007 - the years are passing me by*. She was so lovely and so nice, and her mom was so proud of her. So happy to see her success!

    We need a 'happy dance' icon. As the mom of an aspiring upper level rider who is required to wear a helmet at all times but 'wasn't sure you could even wear one instead of a top hat once you reached that level' a big thanks to Jacqueline for being such a wonderful role model.
