My helmet saved my life!!! by Natalie

Around the summer of 2002 I did a really stupid thing. I decided to ride my horse Paco around our front pasture. But the dumb thing was I was riding him bareback with shorts on, and my horse never really liked to pick his feet up, he was a lazy horse. We had a lot of rocks in our pasture, and Paco took a step, fell to the ground on his knees. That scared him so he immediately got up and took off while I was still on. After he had got up I slipped right off of him and slid 3 feet while getting total rode rash all over my leg. When I fell, my forehead hit the ground hard. If it hadn't been for my helmet, I probably wouldn't be here to tell the story.
