A couple of weeks ago I went riding with a very good friend of mine. She was not a good rider and I really wanted her to wear a helmet, we have many as we do trail rides. We started out on our ride and for some unknown reason the horses spooked. I was able to get my horse into a one-rein stop, which prevented me from falling off, but my friend wasn't so lucky. Her rein broke and at some point she passed out and fell off, that was the end of her. I saw the whole thing, I saw my best friend die. Since she was not wearing a helmet her life ended that day, I know that if she was wearing a helmet she would still be alive. I beg everyone to wear a helmet, so that no one else has to see what I saw.
