Bull Riding Helmets
Some people might think that professional cowboys don't wear helmets when they're in the ring riding a bucking bull. While this may have been the case years ago, more and more professional bull riders are opting to protect their heads with a helmet that can withstand the force of a fall or a bull's hoof to the head.
Being catastrophically injured in a hard fall or when a bull weighing 2,000 lbs accidentally lands on a cowboy's head is a risk every bullrider faces, and a helmet can be used to protect against this. Suffering a concussion isn't the only thing a bull rider has to worry about - a major brain injury can happen to a rider whose head is unprotected.
There are different types of helmets and different brands of bull riding helmets a buill rider can wear, but the most important thing is that the rider chooses a helmet made specifically for the sport - not a hockey or football helmet. Some cowboy helmets have a face mask, and others don't - it really depends on the preference of the rider.
Amateur and professionall bullriders alike should consider protecting their heads with s sturdy and safe bull riding helmet. There are many different brands and styles of helmets to make sure riders look good while they are protected from head injury.
