The helmet awareness campaign Riders4Helmets will be hosting the fouth Riders4Helmets Safety Symposium on Feb. 2, 2013 at the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, from 8.30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The safety symposium will bring together representatives from various corners of the equestrian world to discuss the importance of wearing helmets and rider safety and education, and to improve helmet designs, and more. The event will provide a series of short lectures and panel discussions throughout the day. Many in attendance–including equestrians, helmet manufacturers, equestrian organizations, and neurosurgeons–will also sit on the panels. Lyndsey White of Riders4Helmets will be the chair of the meeting.

"We are very excited to be hosting the 4th Riders4Helmets Safety Symposium and to see it continue to expand not only into other equestrian disciplines but all aspects of equestrian safety," said White. "The symposia are a fantastic opportunity to bring together many individuals, organizations and associations all in one place, to continue important discussions regarding equestrian safety. We are already planning the first International Equestrian Safety Summit for summer 2013 to be held in the U.K., which will take the symposia concept to an even wider audience."

The Craig Ferrell MD Equestrian Safety Awards, named for the late United States Equestrian Team physician and chair of the Fédération Equestre Internationale medical council, will be presented at the Safety Symposium. Lorraine Ferrell will be in attendance to observe the recognition of individuals who have been nominated by equestrians as being exceptional role models for helmet wearing or equestrian safety
