Sign up for the webinar at: https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/494087742
During the hour-long presentation, Roy will discuss innovations in helmet design. By adding complexity into the helmet design to answer many of the questions asked in today’s riding accidents, Charles Owen has been able to build a helmet that works to deal with the energy of impact in a wider range of accident situations. Horses and riders are riding in many different situations and environments than before, requiring helmets that can answer today’s tougher questions.
“We are always looking for ways to help riders stay safe in the saddle so?we’re delighted to present this free webinar with Roy Burek from Charles Owen,”?said EQUUS Editor Laurie Prinz. “Roy can provide a unique perspective based on his years of experience with helmet design.”
Roy brings over 30 years of experience in setting helmet standards. He is currently a representative on the European Standards for equestrian helmet safety and a leading member of ASTM International’s helmet standard’s subcommittee. Through his research for Charles Owen, Roy has learned that helmets with multiple standards and multiple certifications help lessen injuries across a broader spectrum of accidents.
