I completely understand Cy. I never ever thought about wearing a helmet. And like womack, I got bucked a couple of years ago and ended up with a concussion that wiped my entire day from my memory. I have no memory of it to this day. And I was STILL reluctant to wear a helmet and although plenty of family encouraged it, they weren't going to talk me into it. It was actually my daughter (the one we bought the new horse for in September) that brought me around. She won't mount up without her helmet and I felt terrible that she was being so good about it and I was just worried about what everyone else would think. I have to admit, you get used to it. I always wear mine now, whether I'm riding barrels, riding English, or riding trails. And I'll even wear it when my daughter is in school. LOL! I actually feel a little incomplete without it now. What'd you end up getting?
Welcome AXH! Yup, just jump in. Everyone here is great and sucks you right in. So you know the hillcountry? I grew up in Marble Falls so I definitely know the area. We're north of Dallas now though.
