Do You Wear A Helmet?
Let's hear it! How many of you wear a helmet when you ride? (BTW - I totally encourage that everyone wears a helmet. I've seen enough riders fall off hard enough to crack/smash their helmets - imagine if it were their heads hitting the ground! :shock:)

I voted sometimes because I use it most of the time - when I remember!

I always wear my helmet, 100% of the time. No matter how hot or how calm the horse I am riding is. I actually don't quite understand why some one would not wear one. But to each his own.

This has been discussed to death, but....

I wear one 100% of the time when I'm riding my TBs. When I'm on my reiners or my Paso gelding I do not.

You guys probably see a lot of these polls haha can you tell I'm new here? :)Just trying to get a gauge because I know some people are more strict about it where some people can take it or leave it.

Only wear one at the shows because I have to.

Didn't wear one when I was in the western world, now I'm on the English end of things and will never mount without one again.

I think they are extremely comfortable, (If you buy good quality+right size) and they keep my head warm in the winter! I actually forget I have it on 99% of the time. I think that saving me from a nasty collision with a standard/the fence/ground/hoof would be well worth the slight inconvenience.
