Virginia Tech Equestrian Helmet Ratings: 2022 Edition

With sponsorship from Jacqueline Mars, USHJA, USEF, USEA, we have rated a total of 40 equestrian helmets using the STAR evaluation system. Our impact tests evaluate a helmet’s ability to reduce linear and rotational acceleration of the head from a range of head impacts a rider might experience. Helmets with more stars provide a reduction in concussion risk for these impacts compared to helmets with fewer stars.
