helmet vs no helmet
im sure this is going to be a topic everyone will have 'hot' opinions on but here goes anyways.
there is always a large number of people that go on about wearing a helmet when riding. but my issue is this...in the english world its almost considered taboo not to wear a helmet. while in the stock.western world, its rare to see a person wearing a helmet at all.
i was taught to ride stock/western at the age of 4 and never wore a helmet until i started riding english at the age of 18. it just wasnt heard of to wear a helmet out riding on the farm. everyone wore cowboy hats :)
even at competition level of stock/western riding, no one wears helmets.
i personally hate wearing them whether my safety is at risk or not this is my decision to make. however, where i have my horses, we are not allowed to ride without one.
just wondering what everyones opinion is on this
"I whisper but my horse doesnt listen...So I yell!!...He still doesnt listen"
