    Hoofprints: where did you find this western hat/helmet? I tried one on years ago and it was way too high on my head. This one looks lower and sleeker. Thanks.

    To those of you who don't wear helmets - horses can trip and fall, too - even the bombproof ones. It's not just spooks that make people fall off.

    Last summer I saw a really bad one - little girl on a bombproof pony, good footing. Pony took a bad step while they were trotting and flipped over. He rolled right over her. She had a seizure while she was lying there in the dirt, went to the hospital, but was ultimately fine. Now if she didn't have a helmet on... you can imagine what the outcome would have been.
