This is my Arabian mare Tia Rose. I always wear my helmet while at a Gymkhana show. I always feel better with my helmet on while racing.
I never like to wear my helmet while trail riding. I like my western hat instead, to keep the sun off my head.
I lost a dear friend last year due to a horse riding accident on a trail ride with friends. She did not have a helmet on. A helmet could have saved her life.
She is missed dearly. She was a beautiful loving mother, wife, sister, aunt and dear friend to many.
I will wear my helmet on trail rides too. Accidents do not discriminate on what type of riding you are doing.
