My ah-helmet moment was before I even started riding. When I was six I was in a terrible car accident and got a bad brain injury. It took years of therapy but finally I was able to walk, talk, and do normal stuff again. I found my love for horses then and ever since have always had horses.
I always, always wear my helmet when I am riding because I know how fragile the brain is. I have had my share of horse accidents too but one was really bad. The horse flipped over on me and broke my hip, pelvis, tail bone and some other bones would’ve probably been worse had I not been wearing my helmet. I don’t care that people think they look dorky I would rather be safe then sorry.
Horses are my life.
