Wearing a Riding Helmet

Safety, safety, safety and then some more safety.

I will always recommend wearing a properly fitted riding helmet whenever you are on a horse, and ideally around horses. Even if you say to me that it'll mess up your hair, or you would rather not wear a helmet, I will still recommend that you wear one.

I ride horses too, and I always wear a helmet when riding. I have fallen off horses - haven't we all? In one of my falls, however, if I hadn't been wearing my helmet, I wouldn't be alive today.

I always recommend that you wear a helmet, I won't lecture you, I will simply say that I recommend it. The choice is yours.
