The photo proves that you DID put him in danger. You may not think you did, but it's there for all to see.

He competes in rodeos and doesn't wear a helmet, none of the 50 kids do. He will be just fine.

I'm not sure where your logic is coming from, and I'm being very restrained right now.....as for the other 50 kids in the rodeos, they aren't your responsibility, but your boy is YOUR responsibility, do as you will, but knowingly risking your kids skull just because the other 50 kids are fine doesn't mean you will dodge the bullet.......you just got your leg booted by a horse, imagine if it wasn't your leg but your kids head.......just think about it.

Which is why he isn't just running around under their feet.

He rides all the time on several horses, by himself, with me or being led by his dad at a canter through poles. If I felt he needed a helmet, I would have put one on him. Obviously, I didn't feel he needed one.

It's not a matter of NEEDING a helmet......it's called practicing due diligence.....

The fact that he's not running around under their feet has nothing to do with riding without a helmet, I was making a point of how damaging a horse can be.....

I probably don't need my seatbelt today.....but tomorrow when I get t-boned by a semi I might.......how can you predict the actions of a horse 100% of the time.....

Good lord. Lol

I don't wear a helmet. Never have, probably never will. Just my own preference. (And NO, not cause they're ugly or whatever). I used to ride all sorts of crazy, have fell off my fair share of times (even riding double at one point) and I'm still alive and kickin. Doesn't mean something bad will never happen... I just don't get on the back of a horse I don't know/trust, or can't read the body language of.
And to save all you safety freaks of more typing, YES I realize anything can happen at any time even if I do trust/know the horse... just thought id add my opinion.

Not assuming at all, you have a 1 year old BABY, not a small child who can sit on a horse unaided......so go thank yourself.

Here's a thought, let's try to actually give someone an opinion without bashing them cause they don't think like you. No I am not talking about myself but the original poster.
Sheeesh people.
