People in general not wearing helmets while riding bug me. But an instructor not wearing a helmet while his STUDENTS are present? Way to set a good example. NOT. Ughhh.
So here's the story.
The farm where my sister rides had an open house. This farm speacilizes in driving and hunt seat. The open house was going great until the very end. Everyone had left except for a couple of his students and parents. My sister's instructor decided to ride for us. I was exactly excited at first because I've never seen him ride. Wellllll, he gets on this huge Shire-cross mare WITHOUT a helmet, in front of students and parents. I openly asked where is his helmet. Everyone started making stupid excuses for him. I gave up and just stood there. He finished riding and got off. This is what made me even crazier. His student then got on the horse WITHOUT a helmet and proceeded to ride the horse. Not to mention that the horse was crazy and bucking.
Anyways, am I overreacting? Should I not be concerned about this? Please give me your opinions! Thanks
