I saw a bicycle helmet at Walmart that had a 4 inch unicorn horn on the front of it. How is that safe?

There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill

It may be fabulously cool but it's not safe. What if you crash into someone else? Sure you'd be protected but you might have to clean brain matter off your unihorn!

Its all about me!
It is up to my coworkers to protect themselves with bubblewrap helmets.

'Take the time it takes so it takes less time'. Would you rather your horse working as a partner of as prey? I ride Parelli and my horse trusts me a lot more than she did before. Parelli is based on a gorses natural insticnts. You don't have to do anything to do with NH, just as long as you and your horse are both happy! And for me, it's Parelli, for others it can be something else. But no matter what, I hate it when people expect results quickly with a horse.

I use the Parelli method and I feel the same as you do! I use the basic concepts (like treating them like partners and so on) but build on it myself and do what works best for me and my horse, not what someone else tells me to do!
