My Ah-ha moment came when I was getting a 15 yr. old paint mare ready for a demonstration to children. I guess I went through the warm up too fast for her and just before I got on, I saw my helmet and put it on just in case.

Well, “just in case” turned in to “so glad I did that”. She bucked with no indication and I landed hard. Could have been much worse than the bruised back and slight concussion. I didn’t hit my head just jarred it from landing on my butt.  No one was there to help me up so I got up and “moved her feet” as best I could. First time getting bucked off at 50. Never again and I will always wear my helmet. Oh, mare is for sale, cheap!
