Helmet Awareness Day Lookback: Local and Legend Riders #mindingtheirmelon, Presented by Kentucky Performance Products

This past weekend was Helmet Awareness Day, a day (well, weekend, really) that encourages riders of all ages and abilities to wear a helmet “every time, every ride” when mounted on a horse.  Accidents do happen — we work with horses after all!  We rounded up the latest on our Instagram feed of some of our favorite riders, from locals to legends.  Check out their stylish helmets.

Glossy is such a cool finish!

Our own writer, Ema, rocking super functional air vents in her helmet.

Can’t go wrong with color coordination.

Our writer Amanda also runs a quite famous TikTok account… 😉

This little tot is sure to become a legend one day! In the meantime, pink bows and classic Charles Owen are her style.

We have been in so much talk lately about the future of our sport, the need for diversity and inclusion and the need for equestrian sport to be accessible. Well let me tell you, this is the future! This is 4 year old Riley. She is filled with joy, promise and love for horses, she is the future. Look at her smile and the sparkle in her eyes. She is happy, excited and loves her ponies. Let’s promise this little smiling face that when she is old enough to understand, this world will be different. It will be diverse, it will be anti-racist and it will be inclusive. Her love for horses will be nurtured and harnessed and she will be cherished. Not to mention how darn cute this little one is! ▫️▫️▫️▫️ #blacklivesmatter #blackequestrian #blackequestrians #blackgirlmagic #blackjoy #poniesofinstagram #antiracism #antiracist #equestrianblog #equestrian #equestrianlife #equestriansofinstagram #equestrianstyle #equestrianlifestyle

Go Jumping!


Fight back against colic and digestive upset.

Neigh-Lox® Advanced provides a scientifically advanced blend of ingredients that work synergistically to maintain your horse’s digestive tract in peak condition by supporting both the gastrointestinal tissues and the beneficial bacteria that populate the gut. Maintaining a healthy digestive tract reduces the risk of colonic and gastric ulcers, colic, laminitis related to hindgut acidosis, and oxidative stress that damages digestive tract tissues themselves. Horses with a well-balanced GI tract have good appetites, absorb more nutrients from their diets, maintain a strong immune system, and stay healthier.

The horse that matters to you matters to us®. Not sure which horse supplement best meets your horse’s needs? We are here to help. Contact Kentucky Performance Products, LLC at 859-873-2974 or visit our website at KPPusa.com.
