Ah-Helmet, Janan

Janan Johnson Cowles

As a young girl in Texas I rode my horse wearing a cowboy hat. I am now 55 I live in Maine and have horses again for the past 6 years. I have grandchildren and I require they wear a helmet also I wear a helmet after promising my mother that I would always wear one when riding the horse.

ah helmetI made a decision it was time to get a newer safer saddle if I were going to continue riding only trails with my horse. The store owner brought out the saddle I had chosen to try it on my horse 2 weeks ago I rode my horse in the round pen with the saddle for just a few minutes without a helmet for the first time in all these years. I knew I wanted this saddle but I chose to wait a day or two before ordering it.

The next day I was going to take one more ride in my old saddle to be sure of my decision. I almost went out without my helmet because it was going to be just a short ride inside the pasture but I turned around and put my helmet on. 30 minutes later I was on the ground and could not move I call for help from my cellphone and waited as I lied there with a cracked helmet and 3 broken ribs. I now thankfully need a new helmet and will not consider riding without one even for a few minutes.

This is my Ah- Helmet moment, safe and happy trails to everyone, Janan

    Ah-Helmet I vote for Janan Johnson Cowles. I use to ride with this girl, back in Texas when she wore her cowboy hat. I had the pleasure of riding with her as a lady in Maine. We both wore helmets. Thank her mother for telling her to always wear her helmet. You just never know when that moment comes when your horse goes one way and you go the other. My how the times have changed. So thankful she practices these safety measures. As if not she would have suffered much greater injuries recently. Ride on lady!!!! Hope to ride with you again someday.
