The eagerly anticipated Virginia Tech Helmet Rating results for 2022, sponsored by Jacqueline Mars, USHJA, USEF, and USEA has been released. Using the STAR evaluation, 40 equestrian helmets have been rated. Lower scores indicate better helmet performance based on 12 laboratory impact tests. Tests were designed to correlate to the types of falls with the largest concussion risk, including linear and rotation acceleration for each impact.
