Riding Helmet
#1
Spring is approaching and I want to remind everyone how important it is to wear your helmet. You never know when you might come off your horse and a helmet can make the difference between a little hurt pride and a terrible accident. Here is a link to a great article on it: http://www.discoverhorses.com/why-riding...-work.html

A local TV morning show had a live cutaway to a reporter that does all the goofy stuff and he was at a riding facility yesterday. There was an "instructor" and a couple of girls riding around in a circle and then this reporter who obviously hadn't been on a horse before. NONE of them had helmets. I haven't had a chance to email the station but it's on my list to do this week.

Thanks for the reminder TCH. One of my favourite topics.
Hook(ed)......on Horses

"The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life. " Author: Robert Louis Stevenson

I never understood why people seem to have a habit of shunning helmets. Not just on horses, but bikes as well.

I have yet to find a helmet that fits my horse....
