The USA Equestrian Safety Committee is introducing a rider Medical Information Form sponsored by Troxel Helmets, with the recommendation that each rider/driver/handler complete a copy of the form and place it in an outside coat, shirt or pants pocket whenever competing at all recognized competitions. The committee advises that the information exhibitors include in the form will assist medical personnel in the event of a serious accident or injury. Please inform your trainer and/or groom of the location of your completed form and be careful if borrowing another exhibitors jacket.
Forms are being mailed to competitions with the request that they be made available to exhibitors in the show office. Forms are also available as downloads on our website under Safety and under Competition downloads and will be mailed to all members with their 2004 membership cards
