Bel Joeor Sale and Giveaway!

Amanda from Bel Joeor is hosting a big sale on her Etsy site and a giveaway on her blog!  She makes beautiful saddle covers and bags.  I highly recommend checking out her shop and entering her contest.  


Day 28 - Helmet or no helmet?

Always a helmet.  Yes, I have ridden without one before (the few times I showed saddleseat), but even I know that was a stupid thing to do (on a young horse, no less).  I don't mind wearing a helmet, I don't have any vanity about helmet hair, and they honestly really don't bother me.

I am not a helmet nazi, going around on social media calling people out over not wearing one, because I keep my comments/thoughts to myself.  But I do admit my heart drops when I see someone without a helmet and I was SUPER thrilled when USEF passed their new helmet rules.  

Riding is a sport full of risks and I think it is smart to minimize the risks when possible!


Definitely the only selfie I have ever taken of myself and not immediately deleted hahaha!

I am definitely a helmet nerd. I have had a few concussions already in my life so it just makes sense to be careful. I am slightly tempted to do some helmet-less photos with the horses in xmas wreaths but have so far talked myself out of it.
Yeah, my hair does what it wants and I just do me, so I never understood the "I don't want helmet hair" argument for not wearing a helmet. It's like, your hair actually looks nice enough at the barn that you care LOL!
For sure! No reason not to IMO! :-)
Yeah, I have always thought it is not "if" we get hurt with horses, it is just a matter of "when". I'd always rather give myself every opportunity to be save (and stay alive!) around these guys! :-)
