And the winner is...In July, ShowChic Dressage of Wellington FL, sponsored a helmet decorating contest to emphasize the importance of wearing a helmet every day, every ride. We asked riders to decorate their helmet send us a selfie. Our thanks goes out to everyone who participated. The photos we received were awesome! Here are our winners:
1st Place and winner of a NEW UVEXX Perfection Active Helmet - Diana Walcutt
“I'm a Licensed Psychologist in Maryland, a cancer survivor and I’ve been riding for 60+ years. My mustang RoxxStar was rescued from slaughter with her Mom. She's 13 now and we enjoy fox chasing, hunter paces and dressage. I started decorating helmets because each year our friends go Christmas caroling through the neighborhood and we create costumes for this. My dressage organization also has a summer show where you can wear costumes as well. Our August show theme is "Hula at X, a Beach Party." For this contest I decided to do a Baltimore Orioles theme, since it's summertime.”
2nd Place and winner of a $150 gift certificate towards Samshield products at ShowChic - Katja Creswick
“I’m 18 years old and originally from Michigan. I started riding when I was 6, but fell in love with dressage 5 years ago. I love riding and working with horses of all ages and temperaments! I chose the Roaring Twenties as the theme for my helmet design because I think the Twenties were a daring and sassy yet feminine and poised moment in women's fashion and I value these qualities as an equestrian too.”
Congratulations, Diana and Katja for a job well done!
