    I have a resident herd of 8 horses, a small group of boarders, and a fully interactive riding simulator on about 25 acres outside of Houston, Texas. Spend some time in the hill country, and look forward to trotting around other cities myself and with horses in tow, in the future. Thanks again for creating this thread, and hope you all have a great day!
    Welcome to our thread! Dive on in, we tend to get chatty :)

    Welcome AXH, we do have a tendency to be a chatty group but one thing you must do is post pictures and tell us more about you and your ponies:)

    Yes, pictures are a requirement!

    So, riding helmet shopping is worse than shoe shopping. Amazing how differently each helmet brand fits! My hair is looking less than stellar, but my noggin will be protected next time I ride Cash. I think I was around 14 the last time I bought a helmet and I only used it for jumping or HUS show classes. Using one for everyday riding is going to take some major getting used to...

    I ride everytime in a helmet but admit it took a hell of a fall down a ravine to convince me to go that. I never mount without one now. Except for some pics we did recently

    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.

    Tried on 8 helmets and ended up with the Ovation Deluxe Schooler. 95% of the adult riders at my Boarding facility wear helmets, so I probably looked out of place not doing so! Despite a helmet-less past, I have to remember I now have a family waiting for me to return home in one piece.

    Donkeys will fly before I wear a helmet everyday. I am going to have to buy one to show Cassuis in english classes .
    My reasons are pure vanity too. At my age I have a full head of hair and I am going to show it off. Shalom

    Dallas is dark, dreary, and wet. I want to be home in my PJs, not here at the office.
