My daughter is very lucky. She was getting on one of our horses who was still a bit green. I had been riding the horse for about a year and she was doing good my daughter wanted to start riding her so I said ok to it. The horse was just fine for saddling and brushing standing quietly than my daughter went to get on the horse flipped over on top of her and landed on her head she always puts her helmet on and thankfully she does. Doctors told us without the helmet it could have been much worse than just a headache.
