What is a “Hellhat” you ask. A hellhat is a combination of a riding helmet and a cowboy hat. Integrating those two for those who might not be willing to sacrifice the look of being a cowgirl for safety.
PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN SUPPLIES:
1 Cowboy hat suggest size 7-5/8 for about a med sized helmet, if your helmet is small go a bit smaller and do the opposite if your helmet is larger. This hat will be cut up.
electrical tape and or duck tape either works
glue, one with good holding power- may not be used at all but good to have
Old belts, head bands, flowers, bandana’s, bling bling. Just about anything can be used. Get creative.
Bring your creativity and maybe extra decorations to trade or share.

This is what Warrick would like you to know about himself:
“I grew up outside of Melbourne, Australia, riding horses with my father, an accomplished horseman and rodeo cowboy. I started rodeoing at fifteen years old in Australia and New Zealand, and came to the U.S. in 1982 to further this dream. While in Steamboat Springs, CO, I attended a Monty Foreman clinic, which opened my eyes to a more effective way to communicate with horses, and since then, I have never looked back.
Over the past 17 years, I have worked with great horsemen, such as Jack Brainard, Buck Brannaman, Ray Hunt, Mike Major, Bryan Neubert, Dennis Reis, and Joe Wolter. Each person helped me develop a deeper understanding of horsemanship. I have taken this knowledge, transformed it, and put it into practice in order to get the most out of horses. My true understanding of horses has helped me start numerous colts and hold horsemanship clinics throughout the United States and Australia.
I welcome any opportunity to help others establish an effective relationship with their horse. People frequently come to me frustrated because their horse will not cooperate nor responds to their cues. By showing others a better and safer way to communicate with their horse, people leave my clinics with the power and knowledge to accomplish what they want.”
