    I just started wearing one this year. I really don't mind it as much as I thought I would. I wore a hat most of the time anyway, so no big deal.

    Lol i'm the same - I always wear a helmet because whenever I fall off, I always seem to bang my head. It normally gives me a headache so I'd hate to think what it would be like if I wasn't wearing a helmet!

    After JDI's post and my near hoof to the face this week maybe I should start wearing a motorcycle helmet with a chin guard and full face shield

    Will not get on a horse without one. I work as a Paramedic and know first hand that the injuries you get have nothing to do with your riding level. Injuries happen regardless.
