Samshield is the result of a mix between the young pro rider’s needs, the young designer’s creative energy, and the engineer’s technical vision. Samshield’s philosophy is to always provide advanced products in terms of active and passive security, comfort, hygiene, material and finish quality, as well as customization. The Equestrian Aid Foundation and Samshield America are joining efforts to support the Equestrian industry in this difficult time. Samshield America will donate 20% of its sales every week to the Equestrian Aid Foundation Disaster Relief Fund to assist in their continued aid for our sport until horse shows resume. Samshield Service is used in case of a violent impact on a helmet, the inner shell (in polystyrene) will crush and lose its shape in order to absorb the impact. From then on, the polystyrene shell will never have the required thickness to absorb another impact if you fall again. This is the reason why we have to change the helmet in case of an important impact. The IHSA has partnered with Samshield to provide any and all IHSA teams, members, and affiliates the opportunity to purchase Samshield Helmets and Gloves.
