Ambassador Angela Jackson of Rhein-River-Farm
When we asked Angela to give us a little blurb about why she chose to ride in the IRH helmet, this is what she had to say:
“Gosh I’ve had an IRH for a long time. I always just loved how comfortable they are. I always felt that I had to set an example as a trainer to the younger riders that we need to wear a helmet. The IRH has been the one for me as I ride many young horses and have to wear it all day.
I was happy to become an Ambassador for the IRH when approached by IRH representatives at the US Dressage Finals in 2014 in Lexington where I was able to win 3 Championships at that show. The PSG and Intermediate 1 Freestyle with Allure S, as well as the 3rd level Freestyle with the 6-year-old stallion Hemmingway OLD.
I am still wearing my helmet all day. My favorite for sure is the beautiful blue Swarovski one that IRH custom made for me (thank you Frank). The newest IR4G Gloss black finish is for sure a head turner at the shows.
I had so many comments at my first show wearing it. Just love it.”
