I am going to start wearing my new helmet that I got today (Tipperary Sportage), and I was looking around at helmet stuff on the forum and I came across a few 'do you wear a helmet' questions, but they were all old posts and I didn't want to bring it back up, so I made my own.
So....do you wear a helmet?
Quite honestly, I haven't worn one in a year or two, since I did English. I wore one the first year doing Western after English but then I stopped (I've been doing Western for 3 years). I got a dressage saddle for Christmas and I know it will be easier for me to fall off in that saddle, I got a helmet. My barn had one but it was a darned Troxel Sport, and was very uncomfortable.
What are your reasons for wearing/not wearing a helmet?
Thanks for answering!
