My mom never bubble wrapped me (heck, I think she's STILL trying to kill me half the time!) but seatbelts and helmets to me are just reasonable, if I accidently stab myself with a knife, well, then I need stitches, but if a dog chases my horse and I fall off and hit my head, that could very easily be the end of me.
Oh golden horse the helmet covers are a good idea! I was thinking glitter glue and stuff to decorate...... but I guess bos don't like that do they? Lol.
If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.
