Kursinski Emphasizes Commitment to Helmet Use and Other Tips for Riders New Content Also Launching on Horse.com with Helpful Equine ArticlesSeptember 30, 2010, Hazelton, PA – Statelinetack.com, the premiere online destination for horse supplies and information is launching a new expanded content section that will include a wealth of helpful articles for devoted horse owners and aficionados.

To kick off this content launch, Statelinetack.com will feature their first exclusive interview, with Anne Kursinski, World Champion Horsewoman, five-time Olympian and one of the United States’ most accomplished and respected show jumping athletes. Her interview will be featured along with images and links to an October helmet promotion to supplement her content, on a special landing page at Statelinetack beginning today. Anne graces the cover of State Line Tack’s October print catalog.

Statelinetack.com’s content area expands upon the site’s already robust collection of horse training videos. In the new print content section, visitors will find helpful resources, articles and tips. To celebrate the launch of this expanded content area, Statelinetack.com seeks to reinforce the importance of helmet use at all times by all riders. To help make this point, Statelinetack.com secured an exclusive interview with influential champion rider Anne Kursinksi, who discusses her critical role in shaping helmet regulations, shares the history that led her to support consistent helmet use, and talks about some highlights of her career. A few tips she shares are as follows:

  • “The main thing I look for in a helmet is for it to fit my head really well. It’s very important that the fit be right. I’ve had a concussion in helmets that I wore in the past where I was not focused on the fit and safety rating, so the SEI rating and the safety and the fit of a helmet are all really important.”
  • “The other thing I always remind my students about is that everyone needs to wear their chin strap tight enough. A lot of kids do not want to wear it snugly, because it’s not comfortable, but it’s really important for the chin strap to be correctly attached.”
  • “With statistics showing that helmet use in the U.S. is still at a discouraging rate of only about one in eight riders regularly using approved protective headgear, there is a great need for continued education and outreach on this important safety issue.”
