Wow, that crazy that it is mandatory to wear a helmet in Ireland! Their is no such rule here in Arkansas, you don't even have to wear a helmet when riding a motorcycle! Just like some of you other have said, I don't usually wear a helmet when getting photos... and at night when I feed my horse I will just jump on him bareback with nothing on him as he eats and I just lay their spread out... without a helmet... Yeah, he has spooked a few times and the alpha horse has got to him making him run but I just slip off... even though I dont like helmets whenever I don't have one on I feel prone to injury...

E v e r y horse is good for something. You dont throw a whole life away just cause he's banged up a little...

Cloud, I don't think it's law to have to wear a helmet in Ireland as far as I know? I'll admit, I don't always wear a helmet & I've never been let know about it. Don't hold it against me, but I don't think it's law :)
