    Default New York Times: Dressage Riders Embrace Helmets, to a Point

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/09/29/sp...?src=twt&twt=n

    Interesting to see it profiled in the NYT and to see the reaction of different riders/trainers. Liked Lendon Gray's comment that “I know people personally who feel a certain relief that they now have permission to wear a helmet”

    Wonder what the trickle-down effect will be? Then again, I ride at a dressage barn that must be weird, because just about everyone wears helmets.

    Helmetless riding: natural selection, hard at work.
    I tolerate all kinds of animal idiosyncrasies.
    I've found that I don't tolerate people idiosyncrasies as well. - Casey09

    Hogwash. DQ's wear the damn helmet and be done with the silly theatrical tophat. This isn't 19th century England for God's sake.
