I'm so accident prone I really should be wearing a helmet 24/7. I've sliced my scalp open on the edge of a cabinet door, got a concussion from falling down the stars, bashed my head on a table while cleaning.

So wearing a helmet when riding really isn't even a question of choice.

So I do barrels and Am trying to convince my parents to not let me wear one, at least for rodeos, because it's super embarrassing and I've been riding forever!!! I'll wear one most of the time during practice but...

horsecents your parents are just showing you they care.
Be glad they do and if they insist on it smile when you put it on.
now I do not wear or own one but I am an adult .
Anyone that make a comment about you wearing a helmet while doing barrels is being a total @#$. Ignore them. Shalom
