A Conversation with Helite Equestrain: Airbag Technology Expert


Lynn introduces listeners to Josie Richer, the Helite representative for the United States. Helite is a company that created the individual protection airbag, this technology was originally developed for motorcyclists, where the airbag couldn’t be integrated into or onto the machine but created to protect the rider. Now the technology has translated into equestrian riders being able to be protected from hips to neck, easing anxiety around riding as well as protection from falls. Listen in as Josie shares with Lynn the history behind the technology, how to use the vest, as well as why she became involved in this company and products she is developing.
