The older I get the more OCD I become I swear!!! That is why the misspelling of "wear" is driving me nuts.

Whoops, sorry about posting the YT link to another rider [the first YT link was NOT of the girl who got kicked, but of a girl that she subscribes to and learns some of her 'Tricks' from]

Actually, the edge of the horse's hoof caught her right at the top of the eyebrow. Odds are, the main impact was just below the edge of the helmet. This is the problem with anecdotal evidence. If someone gets hurt and lives while riding with a helmet, it is always the helmet that saved her. The only time I've come off Mia, I was wearing a ball cap. My noggin wasn't hurt, but I didn't go around claiming my ball cap saved my life.

Statistically, helmets help if you fall. But if this girl doesn't learn more about horses, even a five point harness and full face helmet won't keep her healthy.

I didn't see this thread until today. I read every bit of it. Wow. This young lady needs to get a clue before she is seriously injured or killed. Luke needs a real trainer - or perhaps a shot needle of the purple stuff.

My former horse Red was a snotty little yearling when he was purchased as a yearling at the Louisiana Breeders Sale. He made the mistake of kicking at his owner, Margaret. Red found himself in the round pen on the wrong side of a bullwhip. He never offered to kick again EVER. He is now a child's horse. I would trust him with any kid but he is still a horse.

I hope this girl realizes that Jesus sent mighty angels to protect her pea head that day.

Her helmet didn't help her. She was hit below the helmet.

I knew of a girl who got kicked in the face. Blood everywhere. Teeth were everywhere. They had to bone graph her mouth back together. She had a helmet on. The horse nailed her in the face.

Theres no excuse for that horse's behavior. I knew a horse who kicked at anyone he bucked off, so you best stay on. He was a beast, and so is this guy.

And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music

She does this all the time, apparently thinks it is funny, as in her show videos on youtube she looks to be in control.

Whether her trainer/parents realize what she does would be interesting to know.

And this is not only time horses have kicked out at her, just first time this bad, but has had broken/hurt hand too.

Just foolish to do this, and hard on horses, which will get the blame when she gets killed on one that she has ruined.

Horses make me a better person.
