WEST PALM BEACH, Florida, Jan. 16–Almost a year after U.S. Olympian Courtney King Dye was injured in a horse accident that left her in a coma for weeks and is now undergoing a lengthy rehabilitation, the wearing of safety helmets in national level competitions is now so common place as to be the new normal in the U.S.

The change has not been as widespread even in the warmup rings at International Equestrian Federation (FEI) levels. Though we were not in the FEI arena at the time, we were informed reliably that Jennifer Baumert on Don Principe in the Intermediaire II and Mica Mabragana on Idillio II in the Prix St. Georges and Intermediaire I wore helmets  during their competition rides.

Along with seeming more widespread safety helmet use, have come changes in rider fashion.

Some random images from the Wellington Classic Dressage Challenge at the Jim Brandon Equestrian Center this weekend, one of an almost non-stop series of dressage competitions in Palm Beach over the winter months. Sunday results are at the bottom.
