All I Felt Was Pain

Dear Troxel,

Yesterday me and my horse Belle were practicing a barrel pattern for the county fair we were supposed to run in this Saturday. She is already a very fast horse and we were at a full-on canter.

She slipped on some mud and we both went down and she fell on top of me. Now I completely blacked out and I remember all I felt was pain in my head and later on I learned that my head hit the ground first then the rest of us hit.

I have a closed head injury, a neck sprain, and a chest contusion. If I didn’t have this helmet then I definitely would be in a lot worse shape or maybe even dead. I am so happy I picked this helmet and it will be the next helmet I buy when I am well enough to get back on.

Thank you,
