A) Any equine event organizer that has more than two functioning brain cells has liability insurance.
B) Liability insurance cost less and less the more universally accepted safety precautions are put in place.
C) Helmets are a universally accepted safety precaution to reduce the occurrence and severity of traumatic head injuries.
D) You can hate mandatory helmet use all you like. There is a simple solution to your problem. Don't participate in activities that require them.
E) You do not have the right to participate in any privately organized event. You do so at the pleasure of the organizers. And if they decide that all participants are going to wear a helmet, then you will or you will leave.
Simple as that.
