Mine is a very quick response.
If you want your brain to be the same at the end of the ride. Wear a helmet.
No, don't take this seriously. I know if you have a bad fall wearing a helmet, you still might get brain damage or something. But wearing a helmet will protect you and give you less of a chance for your brain to be damaged if something bad happens.
However, if you are just mucking around with your horse and you are lying on it's back or something and not riding it...go ahead. Don't wear a helmet.
Otherwise, I would always wear a helmet, also because I am young and do not want anything happening to me. I am sure though some time in my life I will not wear a helmet when I am riding.
But bareback riding. Wow, I so would. I feel I have more of a chance to fall off because I am not on a saddle or have stirrups!
WE ARE GEELONG! THE GREATEST TEAM OF ALL.....
