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.

Ugh after that my mom (bless her heart) wanted to wrap me in bubble wrap! (Appearantly she still views me as her little girl... guess I always will be.)

I'm glad to hear you are okay!
