We’ve identified that together we can collaborate as organisations to improve safety in the sport. It’s our mission and responsibility together to raise awareness of equestrian safety standards and use our experience of helmet development and research into brain injury and concussion to save more lives and ultimately make the sport safer.”
Maria Haig, Head of Communications for British Showjumping commented “We feel fortunate that a highly respected company such as Charles Owen has decided to invest into the British Showjumping Business Partnership and we are excited to develop our relationship with them as the Official Helmet Sponsor for the sport. A key part of this alignment will be the sharing of the expert information and research that the team at Charles Owen has in order to expand the knowledge of those choosing what helmet is best for them.”
