I've also been uspet recently by reports of road accidents involving horses. so a riding hat/helmet and high visibility wear is important.

i am fed up with the speed and the greed of the world around me but i have not found nor can i offer a cure

LP sticks a helmet on her noggan...people buy helmets...jobs are created (probably in China though)...retailers sell more helmets...it's a good thing.

Actually, I think helmets are a good thing!

I agree with LP's statement about not wearing a helmet. If she starts endorsing one it is not going to change the fact that I do not and will never wear one except in the show ring. Her husband and no other male clinician that I know of wears a helmet most wear cowboy hats except those that ride english or jump.
many people will emulate her and it is an ideal marketing ploy.
I have found that those who wear helmets when they ride are adamant that everyone else should.
They may indeed see another war to increase their influence. Shalom

Julie Goodnight wears a helmet...but then she's not a male clinician.
With the males...well, it's probably not the cowboy thing to do.

A helmet is a personal choice...just my opinion.

Not everyone. I wear a helmet when I ride as do my children (Turn 18, move out, pay your own bills and you can do whatever you want..) but I don't give a hoot if anyone else wears one. If anything, I cringe in fear when I find my trainer digging out and dusting off her helmet.... I know she's planning to pick a fight with my horse!

I haven't worn a helmet for ten years......although I haven't fallen off in ten years either.....I do however ensure my seven year old daughter wears one.

Oh gee....I'm like me Dad - 'do as I say, don't do as I do!'

There is a big push to encourage everyone to wear a helmet.
Those pictures of Linda Parrelli Jumping that horse without a helmet raises more than a few eyebrows.
I am very certain she has received more than a few reprimands from our community.
I am fully aware some of us see wearing a helmet for what it is a personal choice. Others however are adamant that everyone should wear one.
I have been riding a horse along the road when a woman pulled over and admonished me for not wearing a helmet.
I laughed and rode on. She drove ahead of me and continued to warn me of the danger I was placing myself in. I crossed the road opened the gate to the pasture and rode away. Shalom

^^^ Too bad you didn't warn her of the dangers of driving while being a busybody.
Good grief!

I think she is getting old, and sometimes when people do that, they start thinking about what all their deeds during life mounted up to, so obviously the woman is now getting a bit worried if she is going to get punished by some horse feeling like taking revenge for all its mates who had to suffer during the years
When I was a kid I used a helmet, but now I don't - but I also never ride a horse unless I am feeling very safe on its back. I know, horses are never 100% safe, but neither is driving a car, or a bike or passing the street in a city. So I just wear nothing... since I am living in DK where cowboy hats are not that fashioned . At any rate I think everyone should decide for themselves to wear one or not. But if I had any kids, I do think I would insist that they should use on, because I think for kids we have another responsibility and they are I guess also a bit more fragile than adults.
