Helmets Required for Dressage Riders

From the article:

Helmets only will be the rule for ALL United States Equestrian Federation events, including for senior riders in Grand Prix and small tour events, effective April 1 this year, though senior riders in International Equestrian Federation (FEI) CDIs will still be allowed to wear top hats.

This is great news and a real step forward for the sport. It's terrible that it took such a tragic accident as Courtney King Dye's to change the rules, but at least something positive came out of it.

(Sidenote: Yes, Salem and I are still alive. Just don't really have anything terribly exciting to report (yet!))
