Yep - its a riding helmet. I have always had them and always used them with new or young horses, but my old one was - well...OLD and the lining kind of disintegrated!Did you know that riding helmets can cost as little as $25.00 and as much as $500.00+? OBVIOUSLY, the nicer looking ones - the ones that do not make you look like you are wearing a 1969 space helmet - are the ones with the huge price tags! I decided to put vanity aside though and opted for the hippo head $25.00 version!
This is what my helmet will look like on me - roughly twice the size of my head! Too bad I am not as cute as this little guy.
..this is a very old hunt cap and although it is made of metal, it rarly worked as an efficient safety device...usually coming off if the rider fell!
...and this is what my husband would like me to wear!NEXT RIDING LESSON - THIS SATURDAY 8:30AM!
