  1. Entered! Thanks for making me aware of this giveaway. I ALWAYS wear a helmet when riding – if you don’t have your brain, you have nothing.

  2. I firmly agree with wearing a helmet while riding. Safety first ensures future rides. You wouldn’t want to go on a roller coaster without a seat belt would you???

  3. I agree with helmets they keep you protected and safe your life I know mine procted me when I got bucked off my old horse so I strongly recommend using a helmet they will protect you

  4. Never wore a helmet as a child but I realize how important they are. I promised my children and my grandchildren I would always wear a helmet when I ride so they would wear one too.

  5. I am a firm beleiver in helmets, my 2 daughters and i neverget on a horse without one. My oldest daughter has actually had 2 falls where she cracked her helmet, and was fine thanks to her helmet!!

  6. Never had a helment, althought I know that I should wear one…If I cant win one,well have to go out and buy one… In your older years, need to protect all of your body parts!!!

  7. Great article that I personally support, as I use go teach and manage a 4-H program and the use of a helmet and body protection is more important to use with equine activities than almost all other sports. I support You!!!!!

  8. My all-time motto…EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED.
    UNLESS you can read your mounts mind 24-7-365, the ONLY WAY you can give your ONE AND ONLY, GOD GIVEN BRAIN, all the possible protection is to wear a helmet while around your horses. One time, one accident, can change not only your life forever….but your entire family.
    A TBI can be with you for life….or worse.
