    I just don't fall off so I don't think I need to wear one! Just kidding but I agree with nrhareiner that people that choose not to wear one should have that choice same as people who make it their choice to wear one.

    I like to think even though I don't wear a helmet I still take precautions to keep myself safe out riding and try to avoid dangerous situations as much as possible. But like Bluespark said about things happen sometimes and if they do I hope that my exerience is their to save me!

    My niece bred, raised and trained her own mare. This mare never did anything wrong...until last weekend when it bucked her off and my niece landed on her head.Trip to ER, concussion, continuing headaches and body aches...just had a baby 2 months ago.

    As a young mother and having very young kids, she now realizes how important it is to do everything in her power to keep herself safe. This 2nd concussion has taught her that. (first was not horse related)

    I think it is wrong for parents to not wear helmets when they have young kids to raise. My opinion, of course, not saying make it a law.

    'I think it is wrong for parents to not wear helmets when they have young kids to raise. My opinion, of course, not saying make it a law.'


    I am amending my above statement from "I think it is wrong" to "I think it is irresponsible and careless."
