                               4-H Equestrian Helmet Policy
                                   Effective July 1, 1994
1. Effective July 1, 1994, all youth and adults participating in any 4-H equestrian activity, regardless of riding
seat, shall wear a properly fitted equestrian helmet which meets ASTM/SEI approval with secured chin harness
properly fastened at all times when mounted on an equine or in a vehicle being pulled by one or more equines.

2. It is recommended that helmets be worn at all times when handling any equine (i.e. grooming, clipping,
lunging.)

3. It is the responsibility of the rider or the parent or guardian of the minor rider, to see to it that the headgear
worn complies with such approved standards and carries the proper seals, and is properly fitted and in good
condition. The University of California, Cooperative Extension staff and agents are not responsible for checking
headgear for compliance. The University of California makes no representation or warranty expressed or
implied, about such headgear and cautions riders that serious injury may result despite wearing headgear, as
no helmet can protect against all foreseeable injuries in equestrian sports.

4. At any time during a 4-H equestrian activity, the 4-H Activity Leader (i.e. Horse Show manager, clinic
organizer, club leader) may check a participant’s equestrian helmet for proper standards. Individuals found to
be wearing an unapproved or defective helmet will not be permitted to participate in any mounted or driving
activity until a proper helmet is acquired.

It is the University of California’s policy “that if any individual group, or club does not adhere to this policy,
they will cease to be affiliated with the University of California 4-H Youth Development Program.” This policy is
effective July 1, 1994.


I agree to adhere to the University of California 4-HYDP policy on Equestrian Helmet Use.
