Sought by many riders, one would think.

I worked as a trail guide a few summers back. That's basically taking a bunch of idiots out for an hour or two on horseback. Normally I did not wear a helmet, but any time I road a horse I was not familiar with, I wore the helmet.

I've been thrown three times. Well, 2 1/2 times. 1/2 because I jumped off before the horse could actually throw me.

The number one cause of head and neck injuries is --falling off of horses! Lets see you make them wear helmets!

Several years ago, my trainer had a bunch of damned chickens in his barn. One night I was riding and, as my horse and I were coming around a corner on the far end of the barn, a chicken flew up - it was at eye level with the horse when we turned the corner. He jumped, spun around and kinda bucked at the same time my body kept making the turn, which slammed me into a stall and the onto the ground...damned chickens left after that incident. Oh, and no helmet and I was riding English.

I had something similar happen to me. I was taking a group of riders out on the trails. About 12 newbies were behind me. Suddenly a deer came bounding out of the forest right in front of me and my horse. My horse (a very solid mare) jumped straight up and turned 180 degrees in mid-air (at least it seemed that way). Much practiced riding skills kicked in automatically and so I did the right thing to keep my horse from bolting without even thinking.

Since I was now facing the group of riders I was responsible for, I calmly said, "that was fun!", but my heart was pounding in my throat.

You know some idiot is putting raw chickens through a wood chipper somewhere out there.

I know! Have you see the Colombian donkey thread?!

love that the Tyson folks are just clueless about the whole thing. from prince to pauper there does not seem to be one person in america willing to take responsibility for the havoc they create.

Everybody at the farm looked up to see where the strange objects came from

It's generally a bad idea to look up when objects are raining down on you.

You expect someone to cook it on the way down?

What a whiner.

Was this "chicken" raw as in uncooked, or raw as in friction burns?

Guess I'm going to hell too, since I laughed.

Can I have the window seat though?

Since I laughed at OnlyM3's post.

I've had pigeons fly into my helmet while I was on the way to a jump. Another one hit the horse, it bolted two strides from the fence, and I remember thinking, " Oh Fu-." I don't really remember what happened next, but I keep the broken-to-hell helmet to scare the 4-Hers into wearing theirs.
