I haven't been on a horse in 20 years. No lie. I just realized the last time I was on a horse was a 3-day horse trek in 1991.
That's too long. Right now I'm debating between working on a motorcycle endorsement or getting to the point where I feel confident on a horse. I need to learn and get involved doing SOMETHING p.d.q. (I'm leaning toward the horse.)
My question of the hour is: does a bike helmet work as a riding helmet? I had a nifty head injury from a bike crash, and I am not ashamed to wear a helmet on a horse nor on a bike. My Bell Citi fits me very well, has a rounded back, and looks a lot like the horse riding helmets I see on the interwebs. However, it is brilliant lime green. Do horses see in Hi-Vis? Would screaming lime green freak them out? Does a bike helmet protect the noggin in the same way as a horse riding helmet?
Teach me, oh horsey babes of TE!
