Barrel racing is a fast-paced, exciting, dangerous equine sport, and yet the majority of barrel competitors don’t wear helmets when riding and racing. There is an unfortunate stigma that exists in the western riding world that discourages riders from wearing helmets, even though the safety benefits of protective helmets have been proven over and over again.
Enter Fallon Taylor, a barrel racer known for making a statement with her distinctive fashion sense and unique outfits. Taylor galloped into the ring at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, NV wearing a custom-designed helmet that matched her wild ensemble. She blazed around the barrels to a fantastic 3rd place finish, and went ahead to win the last round of the competition wearing yet another custom helmet.
Taylor hopes that her example will help encourage younger barrel riders to wear helmets, and show the western riding community that helmets can be fashionable as well as safe. Fallon Taylor’s bold move is also inspiring others: The Diamonds & Dirt Barrel Horse Classic is offering a $100 donation to K9’s for Kids for each young rider who wears a helmet in competition. The program will help encourage helmet use as well as raise funds to pair disabled children with service dogs. It’s a win-win!
