I agree with using the search tool but I'll answer anyway.
I ride with a helmet because my minor daughter had to. I think it's far that a mom wears one by choice if the kid is forced to.

Okay sorry, I didn't check the search. You don't have to answer it if you don't want to anyway.

I'm a "sometimes" person. Generally I don't wear one unless I'm jumping.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

I wear a helmet because I'm forced to. I wouldn't wear one if I could, but I feel that it's the least I can do for my mom. I know that she worries when I go to the barn and I promised her that I will always do everything I can do be as safe as possible. Then she started looking at safety vests, elbow and knee pads, bubble wrap..

The first 5 years I ALWAYS rode with a helmet. Like, I wouldn't even sit on the horse without one. Now that I have my own horse, not so much. If I'm putting him in a situation where he will probably be a turd, then I'll wear my helmet.

I always did when I was taking lessons, but now that they're at home, I usually don't. I don't ride very often as it is.
