Hello. I had a riding accident on May 7, 2018. A horse I had put 6 weeks of riding on bucked me off. Out of the blue. I would never have expected this. My helmet saved my head. I have no doubt it saved my life, and at the very minimum, saved the QUALITY of my life. I will forever be thankful to Troxel. I say my mom was riding on my shoulder, and my Troxel was on my head. -Andre D.
