Students will provide their own ASTM approved helmets or pay a $10 helmet fee per 6 week session
Due to hygiene and ensuring proper fit it is best to have a personal helmet.
Helmets now have dates that require replacement every 5 years due to foam padding and adhesive breakdown
Helmets can be purchased on-line at Dover Saddlery.com or SmartPak.com measurements of circumference of head required for sizing, soft brims or breakaway helmet brims required, and internal harness required. We recommend the brands Ovation, Tipperary, IRH, Troxel with secure harness inside helmet. Oval shaped helmets are available. A good fit is measured by two fingers above the eye brows to the helmet rim in the front, and a snug fit all around so that when thee rider shakes head the helmet does not move. A good fitting helmet is essential and will stay in place and protect you the way it is deigned.
In the event of an instructor being absent another instructor will be called to cover the lesson, or the lesson will be rescheduled.
