New recommendations on dressage hats
Following the accident in which American rider Courtney King-Dye sustained serious head injuries in a schooling fall in Florida earlier this year, the FEI Dressage Committee has issued a recommendation regarding the wearing of protective headgear.

The FEI Dressage Committee strongly recommends that all riders should wear properly fastened safety helmets when training and in pre-competition warm-ups at all international dressage shows.

Riders still have the choice of wearing protective headgear in the competition arena.
