I wear a Tipperary Sportage. Only fallen off once, when my mare bolted during a dismount, but she's not very sure-footed and there are rocks everywhere...so if we go down, I'm likely to be hurt bad without a helmet. But I'm also quite content to let others make their own decision, and I won't refuse to ride if I don't have a helmet around.
