I always wear a helmet. Pumpkin is the horse I ride the most and he a horse that always bucks when he doesn't want to do things. For my safety I wear one in case I happen to fall off again. Because of him, I will always wear a helmet even on the calmest horse you can find.
There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky
