US Olympian Courtney King-Dye suffered a traumatic brain injury on March 3rd, 2010 and has been very open in sharing her story of the daily struggles associated with living with a TBI, and the long road to recovery. Courtney was not wearing a helmet at the time of her accident and has since become an advocate for educating equestrians on the benefits of wearing a properly fitting and secured helmet via the riders4helmets campaign.
