Re: [RC] helmets - Milroy Grosse

Helmets are a must.  But what example are the famouse trainers setting.  Go to a Clinton Anderson show, a Pat Parelli, John Lyons etc etc....they don't wear helmets.
 
You got Lynda Parelli jumping picnic benches without a helmet.  These people must realize the impact their example could have on people.  They go on about safety and horses and respect and and body blocks etc, then jump on a horse with a cowboy hat or sun visor......makes no sense to me.

I agree, I am the same and also with seatbelts.
I had a friend fall asleep at the wheel a long time ago he was ejected and pinned by his own car. It was a week shy of his 18th bday. Since then I demand the use of seatbelts in my car. If you refuse you walk. I have actually lost a friend because of this. She refused to wear a seat belt in my car...I told her to drive in her car or I wouldn't take her where we were going....she never spoke to me again. I don't care I am not going to have the guilt of someones death in my life.

I don't understand why people would take the added risk of not wearing
a helmet, horses are dangerous enough as it is.When i say this  some
people i know i get very stupid replies like "my horse doesn't spook", I
just don't get it. I take people riding quit frequently on my horses
and my rule is no helmet no riding my horse, I don't want their stupidity
on my conscience if they get hurt,also on another note about this.... We have a local
horse association that puts on shows and has the past year or two
started putting on CTR, They have on ALL their forms for signing up for
events: all riders under 17 must wear a helmet but, on their fly er for the
CTR they show pictures of kids  (adults also) walking/trotting threw
their trails etc and no helmets! just made me mad...

  Hi Barbara,
  
  Great story.  I work at a Trauma I hospital.  9 out of 10 traumas are
head injuries.  I figure non helmet wearers are just organ donors?.
