The Riders4Helmets campaign has rapidly gained the support of equestrians around the globe. After organizing National Helmet Awareness Day held in the USA in 2010, the campaign went on to organize International Helmet Awareness Day in 2011 in which over 500 equestrian retailers participated. Riders4Helmets has also hosted three Riders4Helmets Safety Symposia. Plans are already in the works for International Helmet Awareness Day 2012, and a 4th Riders4Helmets Safety Symposium, both to be held summer 2012.
Riders4Helmets was founded in early 2010 after Olympic dressage rider Courtney King Dye was seriously injured in a riding accident. King Dye, who remained in a coma for a month following her accident, was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident, and is still undergoing rehabilitation.
