“A TBI doesn't differentiate if you're a World Champion or a novice rider. As a World Champion mounted shooter, I found myself rehabbing from a TBI in 2012. It changed my life. The comfort, confidence, and security my Troxel Helmet has given me is priceless. You won't see me on a horse now without my Troxel Helmet”
