I just got a new one that actually fits, so I'll wear it sometimes. It will depend on many factors including what horse I am riding, how much I trust the horse, what the weather is like, ect

I always wear a helmet...though I only ride in lessons so I have to, but I would anyway. You never know when something could happen.

I always have worn a helmet when I ride. It's like a habit now, and I bet it'd feel weird if I didn't have one on.

I only wear one if I have to. Like if im riding a greenie or my friends horses, or at lessons. On jasper, I never do.

I've always worn a helmet... very used to it too. I don't think the "it feels weird on my head" is really a very legit excuse. There's all sorts of things that are weird or even slightly annoying that we then get used to and forget. For example: I never used to wear a ring and then I got a class ring. It felt strange at first always having a ring on (and I fiddled with it a ton) but now it doesn't feel right without it. Same sort of thing goes for when I wore a pair of long earrings for the first time and felt them touch my neck or swing around. Also for when I first started wearing a watch regularly. The fact is, you get used to it and forget about it like a dog wearing a collar (they're usually scratching and bothering about it at first) or a horse wearing any of its tack. Heck, some of us probably thought wearing any clothes at all felt weird and akward when we were tots. ^_^ Hehe.

My friend fell off her horse the other day and her helmet saved her life. She has bruises all over her body. She smashed her head once against the tree and then the ground...She wouldn't be alive if she wasn't wearing a helmet..
(the horse got spooked by a piece of plastic)

I never take mine off around horses.

Like many people, I never do (but should); my wife always does. In my experience with my riding friends, the no helmet to helmet 'switch' occurs right after the first visit time being knocked unconcious and going to the ER to have a CT scan of your head.
