I was at riding camp where we ride bareback and was the only one riding a pony while everyone else rode a big Quarter Horse. We began to lope and noticed that he was extremly bouncy. Seconds later I fell off onto my hip and hit my head. I got back on and continued to ride until I fell again on the same spots. Thanks to my Troxel Spirit helmet, I had no injury at all except for a slight bruise on my hip. Just two days before, the advanced riding class I am in watched a helmet safety video! THANKS SO MUCH for putting so much research into a helmet that has saved SO many lives!
