P.S. WEAR A HELMET! You just never know. Head injuries are very tragic. I worked with head injury patients before - guess where? Not in PT or OT or ICU. They ended up in our psych center. Head injuries change you. Prevention - you are far too precious!
I wear a helmet 90% of the time. It's when I have a photographer out there is when I don't and my boyfriend had my camera along with a photographer I've worked with before trying to start an equine magazine. So if there's a photographer out there and the image it to capture full freedom normally they don't like a helmet in the picture. It's a bitch to photoshop out. Lol.
In the arena, on the road, and when there's not a photographer in need of a no helmet picture...I have mine on. Thank you for looking out though.
As for dressage. I took lessons about 3 years ago and use it to help her collect but other than that it was nothing I was majorly interested in. I like feeling the longer strides instead of the shorter restricted feeling ones.
