Is it stupid looking to ride western but wear an english helmet?

I"m asking because I am tired of how my western helmet makes me head look like a giant mushroom lol :) and I have an english helmet that was given to me and looks good but I dont want to look like a dork riding down the trail.

lolers. It would be that hard if you fit it over. I would never suggest riding without a helmet so.... ;P

I think maybe I found a solution though.. I will just look to find a low profile helmet.

They actually make cowboy hats with a helmet inside and a chin strap. They look really funny. Lol

I've seen chuckwagon drivers wear them but thats it. They r weird b/c they have a round top instead of having the dip like normal ones do

Why do you want a helmet anyways? Go without one it is way more awesome!!

And what happens if you fall off and hit your skull or the back of your head on something sharp? It may be fun but think of what could happen.

My mom didn't wear a helmet until she got bucked of and hurt her head. It is smart to wear on b/c u never know with horses

I agree :)

I want to wear a helmet to protect my head. Horses are unpredictable animals.

If they are unpredictable why would you ride them? You might as well wear armor all over your body if you are so concerned about getting hurt

@5150imgoincrazy Horses are unpredictable animals, but you should always wear a helmet because it is the moment important, other than your heart, part of your body. I ride horses, knowing i can get hurt, but I do anyway because that is who I am and what I do.

No one wears helmet when they ride western. If you or your parents insist wear the "western" helmet. It's certainly safer.

More people are wearing helmets than ever before, including for trail riding (people are getting smarter).
Western helmets are heavy, clunky, etc so I understand you not wanting them but there are a lot of low profile helmets out there and no, you won't look dorky.

Wear the english one. I agree, the western ones give u a mushroom effect. Its smart that you wear a helmet! Lots of people in my 4-H club wear english looking helmets western.

Wear the English one and don't stress what other people think. You can get neat colored covers for the helmets too. Safety is important.

If it makes you feel safe, and you want to wear it, then no! You probably look great :) It's about your safety, not what others think. Do what you want and be proud of it! :D
