But where do you draw the line??
Do you wear helmets while in the car, ALWAYS on a bike, while crossing the street? Heck, how many of you swim in the ocean (you don't think a shark can grab you in a split second)? Or how about just swimming in a pool. Do you wear a life jacket each time you hop in the pool. NO!
ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO.
You really can't prevent something from happening if it`s you time, it`s your time.
Sure helmets are good, but I know some people who wont hop on a horse (some wont even go near one) without a helmet.
Does everyone who wears helmets ALWAYS wear proper boots, gloves, etc.
Like I know your head is really important, but you always face ways to get hurt or die can you really or even them all?
Cleaning out a horses back feet IMO is just as unsafe as riding...Your head is just by 1000+ pounds of pure power. How many of you who only ride with helmets on put one on before you pick your horses feet?
I`m not against helmets, but really, how can you say you have to have one while riding, but can do so many other things without all the worry?
