    Three cheers for Dr. Nikki. I'd buy her a drink in an instant at a bar. Aside from basically being as condescending as possible, I completely fail to understand WHATSOEVER how he possibly thinks legal action is possible. It's the internet, she didn't threaten him, she certainly didn't bully him anymore then he bullies women with every single little snide remark both on his website AND YouTube account. He is COMPLETELY capable of blocking her e-mail if he doesn't like it. He chose to respond, and therefore ANY potential legal action in terms of slander or libel are completely out the window, not that he had any sort of chance to begin with. You can't cry about bullying when you actively participate in the exchange of words you dolt!

    Sounds like one great big fat macho case of little penis syndrome thrown into a fit of rage by a woman completely calling him on it and not being able to do a DARN thing about it. Good, I hope he loses sleep knowing this woman is cackling her head off at his ridiculous ignorant stupidity.

    I would have been a LOT less nice in my emails, let me tell you.

    You know, I have to admit a secret satisfation with "Dr. Nikki" too. And you really have to have followed Gore during the last few months to know why. He cracks and cracks and cracks on women, every time, just mercilessly, calls them "barn witches" and says all they are good for is pestering people and gossiping... It is sort of nice just to see a woman rear back and sock him in the mouth. That he publishes her emails puzzles me. His response to even the most innocent critique on youtube is delete all comments, block and mock.

    So why do I keep watching his videos? He's like a bad car accident, and the car just keeps flipping and flipping. It's hard to look away.

    Wow. I am 100% pro-choice when it comes to adults and helmets. I don't wear one, I may never wear one, but I would never dream of degrading the people who do or be so stupid as to insinuate that a helmet is dangerous to wear. I know that they greatly reduce the risk of injury should a fall occur and I don't believe that helmets make people overconfident. I think it's the huge egos that are so common (and so encouraged) in some of the NH groupie crowd ("My horsey would never hurt me, we have a speshul majikal bond of luv") makes people overconfident.

    The only thing that I ask is that people respect my decision to not wear one.

    As for RG, he is what I would fondly refer to as a "f-ing sniveling tit". How old is he? 6...maybe 7? I have never watched him so I can't comment on his attitude toward women in general but just from what I read on the website and what little of the video I watched, that dude is a freaking cluck.

    Indeed, I would assume that he is single and bitter towards women, which is fine. I see no reason for him to carry on his genes to his children. He clearly has some issues thinking.

    And although I wouldn't -make- my child (if I ever have one) always wear a helmet (after they've learned the basics on how to stop, turn, and back a horse, along with how to fall, I probably would suggest anyone else to make their kids.
    This make me chuckle. Iseul just wait until you have kids and come back and re-read this. If your kid rides they will fall off and as soon as you witness a fall you'll be adamant that they NEVER get on a horse w/out a helmet! Especially after a bad fall - trust me, it's not fun to see! You will also find that every time you hear of a tragic accident resulting in a serious head injury your heart will skip a beat and the story will remain in the back of your mind. My daughter has a poster of Courtney King-Dye in her room and when she had her accident I told my daughter and we talked about it so she is well aware ANYONE can fall at anytime. The poster is still on her wall and she will ask about how Courtney is doing from time to time. I am fully aware that in a few short years she will be making her own decisions about this.

    I also take note with the theory that a helmet makes riders overconfident. Anyone who has fallen off knows that more than your head can get injured and most of the time falling off hurts!!! For me, a helmet does take one worry off, just knowing that although I might still fall and get hurt, I have done what I can to protect myself. Even if I still get hurt or incur a brain injury there won't be any "I should have" or "I wish I would have".

    Riding horses is a risk helmet or not. Just be aware of the risk and make your own choice. Think about what you're doing and be sure of your choice so that you don't have any regrets and never have to say "If only I had...".

    Excellent point, NewHorseMom. And yes, the internet is littered with stories of pretty young girls who are dead or brain damaged because of riding (usually jumping) without a helmet. And yeah, you can't protect against everything, but you take what precautions you can.

    Okay, I'll admit in the past, I never wore a helmet. Rode many horses at a friend's house growing up and hey, it was the 80's. We just never wore them. At the barn I ride we have to wear them so I've gotten used to it. Will I wear one when I get my own horse? Probably. The older I get, the more aware I am of my own mortality.

    BUT, to even argue that helmets don't prevent head injuries is just ludicrous. Seriously......do we really need someone to tell us that a helmet can prevent a head injury? I guess football players, racecar drivers, baseball players, motorcyclists are just big wussy women then right?
    Wear a helmet, don't wear a helmet. Your choice. But really, there is just no sane way to argue against the fact that your head is more protected when you are wearing a helmet. Period. End of story. It's like saying the sky is blue.

    Will a helmet prevent all injuries or deaths? Of course not. Will it prevent all head injuries? No. Will it prevent most head injuries? Yes, absolutely.

    And wearing a helmet has never, ever made me or anyone I know less careful. Oh my gosh. If there is anything that made me reckless it was my youth! Lol. Wearing a helmet? Uh no.

    This is so true. I don't wear a helmet half the time by choice, but if I actually believed that a helmet couldn't potentially save my head, I should probably already be wearing one along with the matching strait jacket. That's like saying bullet proof vests don't save lives - we may not wear them every day, but you'd be an idiot to claim they're a waste of time!
