Riding Helmets

Helmet Awareness

Echo Creek Riding Academy, Ltd. requires all riders to an ASTM/SEI approved riding helmet. An investment in an approved helmet is cheap insurance for your head. Echo Creek encourages you to read the articles on riding helmets. Echo Creek also encourages you to watch the video Every Time, Every Ride.
Helmet Fit:

A helmet must fit properly to be protective. The helmet should fit securely on the head covering the top of the forehead. You should be able to shake you head vigorously up and down and not dislodge the helmet. If the helmet slides, then it is too big. Padding may help the fit. Remember to check your fit often.


*A borrowed helmet allows you to ride on a specific day. You need to invest in you own helmet for your safety.

*A bike helmet is not designed for horseback riding.

*Please label your helmet and other riding equipment. Echo Creek is not responsible for lost items.

Warning: Under North Carolina Law, an equine activity sponsor or equine professional is not liable for an injury to or the death of a participant in equine activities resulting exclusively from the inherent risks of equine activities. Chapter 99E of the North Carolina General Statues.
