Why I wear a helmet...
Some people in the "western" world think we helmet-wearers wear our helmets because we don't trust our horses. That's not the case. I completely and totally 100% trust both of my horses. What I don't trust are the million and 1 reasons I could fall off. People in the stands distracting me or the horse,lack of balance, and tack disasters to name a few. I wear a helmet so that when I ride,I can ride in confidence knowing if I fall off,I can have the ability to try my very best to get back on.Sure,I might take it off for pictures and stuff,but when I'm RIDING,I wear my helmet,and I wish more people could see that decision like I do. And I'm not condemning people who don't wear helmets,honestly,that's their choice, and it's often because no one has introduced them to the idea of wearing a helmet. And if they have been,they have their reason not to and I respect that,but that's why I would like them to respect MY decision to wear one.

Vote 16 and YES HELMETS MUST BE RECOGNIZED§
I used to go trai blazing in the mountainds with just a basball cap on until last summer. When you know a horse you feel oh OPK, no need, but with each new one is a challenge & possible injury! Love your page!

Helmets are a good investment!
I don't know why ANYONE would get on a horse without a helmet. Not wearing a helmet for the sake of not being laughed at a show is just insane to me. Being a good rider doesn't mean you won't ever fall...horses fall to.
Thanks for writing this! Everyone needs a helmet!

re;hi
i understand the need for helmets, my horse bucks, and crow hops, but i have learned to stay on, ha. just clench that saddle home. i was raised where just english riders wore helmets. i understand why people wear them and such, i just choose not to, all the times i have been thrown off/fell off i have never once hunt my head, just a little scraped up. and even if i was wearing one, it wouldn't have helped. i have hurt my arms soo many times, but never my head. yes my horse has kicked me, in the side.

We ride hunt seat and helmets have always been part of our equipment. I''ve often watched the western riders and thought that they would be better off trading the cowboy hat for a helmet. Thanks for posting a good argument for helmets - well written and informative!
