Do you wear a helmet?

How many of you wear a helmet/riding hat while riding? At our yard we have to wear a hat while mounted.

Yep. We aren't required to, but I do about 99% of the time. There was that random moment the other day that I forgot to put it on for a 5 minute jump back in the saddle to work on something moment. I am finally getting used to the way it feels now and don't notice it as much. :)

I have one on 100% times after my saddle broke and I was thrown off the horse.

I would literally never even consider not wearing a helmet while riding. That's just asking for bad karma in my opinion!

I don't, and never have, never having been made too when I was a kid, growing up on the "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger theory".
If I was raised to wear a helmet, I probably would but now it's something that doesn't even cross my mind, and I've had some pretty intense wrecks.
I should, but I don't.

Mostly. Depends on the horse & where I'm going and what I'm doing.

No I don't. I actually bought one but, just never could get used to it. It actually interfered with my riding because it felt so unnatural and was always messing with it!
