the only time I ride with my helmet is if My Main Man is having a grudy day, he can be moody and unpridictable sometimes, I also sometimes wear one if im riding off the main property, but that depends on the weather an the horse. And I almost wear one when im working with a horse I don't know or don't ride often.
I understand that anything could happen at any moment, however if you know your horse and what you can handle I think you can determine wether or not it is safe or not.
However if you are a young kid or anything under an experianced rider then you need to have a helmet on for your safety, even if you are a child whos been on a horse your whole life you are fragile and still need that extra protection.
Don't breed, buy. Don't buy, adopt.
