Huge thank you to Shaana Herlocher Risley for sharing the following with us. Please do follow Shanna’s recommendation and visit Jacquie and Emma’s websites to show your appreciation of them being Olympic role models.
So happy to see TWO OLYMPIC RIDERS wearing helmets in OLYMPIC competition today! My hat’s off (while not on a horse!) to Emma Kanerva of FINLAND, and Jacquie Brooks from CANADA! That took some doing! But they are true advocates of how a helmet can save your butt.. even on a well trained Grand Prix horse! (I was really frightened for one rider – who’s horse spooked in the arena – and that mishap could have gone terribly wrong.. even on such a wonderful well trained horse!)
