    a good example of why you should wear a helmet

    Teenage Kicked in Head By Horse After Falling While Jumping

    Although, I don't think she should of been jumping, on frozen ground, in the cold, but I am glad she was smart enough to wear a helmet. Imagine what would of happened if she had not had a helmet.

    That horse would be seeing a bullet, that was totally deliberate.

    I saw this this morning. The owner swears it was an accident and the horse is a total sweetheart and it just refused and she fell off and it kicked out in fear.

    I translate it to - "I am a moron and my horse knows it."

    I'd think a blow to the head like that would knock some sense into people, apparently not.
    Hoping she's ok.

    We had a young girl die here last month when her horse fell in a freak accident and she hit her head.
    Oddly enough my daughter has a concussion right now, years wearing a helmet riding and some punk kid causes her to fall in PE and hit her head on the wall and she's injured. I told her she has to wear a helmet to PE now.

    I have to agree with Alex. That horse would've been shot. That was no "random kick because the rider fell and spooked the horse", that horse completely swung his hind around and kicked at her.

    I also have a feeling that isn't the first time that horse has kicked at a person.

    COMPLETELY AGREE WITH YOU! My husband watched the video with me, and the first thing out of his mouth was "I'd have shot that horse". LOL.

    Completely and utterly intentional. He aimed right at her head.
