A big NO, once I fell, it was a really mild fall but the angle at which I hit my head was quite dangerous. I had a helmet on and I still could not feel half my face for 15 minutes, imagine if I didn't have a helmet on. It is not worth the risk.
I had one bad fall wearing a helmet and I will never get on a horse without one how I was thrown on a road head first I had no idea where I was or what I was doing if I wasn’t wearing one I would propably be dead now
it’s your body, you can do what you want with it. if you’re riding w/o the helmet you’re accepting the risks, and if you’re riding w a helmet, you’re accepting the risks. riding is a dangerous sport, no matter if you’re wearing a helmet or not. it’s up to rider’s discretion and no one ahould just that person for their decision even if it contradicts your opinions
I am still learning to ride and had a horrible fall while cantering my horse. I fell head first and got a concussion. My eye was swolen. It could have been very serious if I hadnt had a riding hat on. Happend so quickly and without warning.
I highly do not recommend it! You never know what could happen to you and you need to remember that your life is not worth the “hassle” of putting a helmet on. Even if you’re riding a horse you fully trust, anything could happen and then could spook.
