I rode without a helmet today -blushes- I never ride without a helmet, not properly, but I was just doing flatwork, horse had already been worked in the round pen and was behaving beautifully, and I can stick on when he trips. I was in no danger of falling!

My hair was loose and it drove me mad but cantering is the best thing ever, helmetless, hair flying out behind you and the wind in your hair!! hahahaha of course next time I come off I will probably swear I will never ride without a helmet again, but I feel bulletproof at the moment... am 18 and starting to get my old fearlessness back!

When I was younger riding crazy wild beasts yes...........now I'm at a cow horse/reining barn, well no....... shame on me, I probably should with all that activity, and if I do fall off and bonk my noggin, then it's all my fault and I'm the only one to blame.....
I'm sure it will be made compulsory one day at commercial type facilities, until then enjoy the wind blowing through your hair and the bugs flying into your mouth while your yelling yahooooooo!!!!

I know, I never seem to land on my head either, or else I can't remember falling on my head!! I shouldn't speak too soon though, you never know!
