What is Missing in this Photo?



Above is Dr. Debra and her friend/riding partner, Cathy, on a recent endurance ride. Did you catch something wrong here?

If you realized that Dr. Debra forgot her helmet, you are correct!

Horseback riding carries a higher injury rate per hour of exposure than downhill ski racing, football, hang-gliding, and motorcycle racing.


Fortunately, Dr. Debra also realized what she had forgotten and continued the ride with her helmet!

Around 60% of horse-related deaths are caused by head injuries… Helmets can reduce this possibility by up to 80%. Always ride safely!
