    I think riding without a helmet is ones own risk but I personally wear a helmet 24/7.

    LOL Me too.. course I didn't know that bike helmets weren't the same, so now I have to buy a new helmet. I only just started reading this book and have already learned so much!

    I'm not bashing helmets at all. If you wear them I respect that and your care about yourself. I just am not a huge fan of having them on.
    same thoughts here..
    And believe me I've taken plenty of falls through the years.

    helmets=safe

    I personally think that it is always a good idea to wear a helmet because you can be the worlds best rider on the worlds best horse, and still get thrown off and hurt, so in my opinion it is better to play it safe that sorry.

    Ride with a helmet. You're a fool for not taking the time to put one on. End of story.

    But, but... that's like those of us not wearing helmets telling those of you that do are sissies for wearing them!!!

    All kidding aside. I don't consider myself a fool for not wearing one, no more than I do anyone a sissy for wearing one.

    Like I mentioned somewhere above, helmets can save you from some accidents but not all. I wouldn't discourage anyone from wearing on. Just don't tell 'me' I have too.

    I wear one all the time. I do think that adults should have the right to make their own decisions regarding helmet use. I would support mandatory helmet use for minors.

    The law here in all barns is helmets being mandatory in anyone under the age of 18. Some places make it mandatory for anyone who rides regardless of the age while others don't care either as far as the adults are concerned.
