    -"Put a helmet on quick."

    In Virginia, it basically works like this: You have the right to get your head bashed in, but you don't have the right to sue someone else about it. Swim at your own risk.
    Thats part of what it's like here you can't sue anyone but if you board your horse and the owner says you should wear a helmet and you don't the owner has the right to remove you from their property and or you can get a fine when a liability poster is posted.
