OTTB's and Helmets Are a Good Mix

I was riding an OTTB a few months back and everything was fine until his friends got a little bit in front of him on our trail ride. He went into a bucking/canter fit and I fell. I went under him. He stepped on my ribs and I couldn't breathe. And he broke my helmet with his hooves. I was terrified! But once I realized I was okay, I checked my helmet and myself. I had figured out he had broken it! Til this day i'm thankful I had my Troxel helmet on :)
