But that's not really my point either. Yes I wear my helmet, because I am forced to. If I had my choice, I would not wear it. If I kept my horses at home, I would only wear a helmet riding or jumping a new horse.

Maybe I am not explaining myself well. At the moment I wear my helmet 90% of the time. If my horses were at my home, I would wear it 10% of the time.

Once your survey has ended, it would be interesting to know if there's an age group that said "never" to helmets more than another; then to take that one step further, how many years has each person in that group been riding?

I have two bad head and neck injuries with the worst being the neck.

The neck injury was caused by my snowmobile helmet, which I always wore, even after the accident. I never got on a dirt bike, went four-wheeling or rode a snowmobile without a helmet.

The head injury was when I baled off a horse that was standing still but was starting to rear. I lost my balance and went over backward on the blacktop and knocked myself flat out. Since I was already off the horse, it wasn't his fault I couldn't keep my balance. I had a minor concussion with vertigo that still rears its ugly head to this day.

I wasn't wearing a helmet and still don't wear a helmet when I'm around or on horses - lol

Contradictions, I know but I am a life long trail rider, now retired, which is why I'm curious about the folks who never wear helmets. My thought is, if an older person that's lived their life on horses but wasn't used to wearing a helmet, they may be the person that says "never", like I did.

The only reason I wear seatbelts is fear of a ticket not because I think it's the right thing to do - lollol
