Unhappy Helmets - Do you wear one?

I've been riding for a couple years and whether I'm trail riding or reining, I wear a helmet. I figure the first time I opt not to wear one, that's the day I'll fall off and bump my head.
At my lesson ranch, NO ONE wears a helmet. I get a few weird looks for wearing one. Everyone else wears a cowboy hat. It's kind of disappointing that there's a stigma.

Anyone else insist on wearing a helmet?

I do if I have a bad feeling or if I'm riding an unknown horse. Otherwise hell with the helmet. People say it might be asinine but if I die it'll be doing something I love...

Do I look down on ones who wear a helmet? Of course not! Everyone has there own personal preference !

I wear a helmet. Anyone that rides my horse wears a helmet.

Anyone I teach wears a helmet.

I wear a helmet every time I ride. Dying from a horse injury isn't my concern - being damaged for life is. I know a helmet won't protect me from everything but I think it will help a lot.

I haven't worn one since I was 15 probably. I do want to get into the habit of wearing one again, but i'd have to buy a new one. I've been looking around a little but I hate buying one online that I can't try on. And theres no tack shops within an hour from me that sells many helmets. So i've been putting it off forever.

I do not wear a helmet, and I have never hit my head on any of my falls, will I? Maybe one day. But they way I see it, if i'm meant to die, then I will die whether I am wearing a helmet or not. People have died, and had head injuries while wearing a helmet, and without. But this is just how I see it.

Cowgirl, I rode cutting and reining horses and I DID wear a helmet. I was the only one doing that, and frankly I didn't care at all how I look or what other people think. When people tried to laugh or make comments about it, I directly asked if they'll be willing to pay for my recovery something would of happen. That shut off all comments completely.

I don't wear a helmet. I'm already on the horse and I accept that what will be will be.

I always wear a helmet.
I agree with everything DancingArabian said!
I wear one so if I fall, I have a better chance of being able to ride again and not being in a wheelchair for life.

Don't wear a helmet unless I'm jumping or riding a young horse. :)
