Does a horse rider have to wear a helmet?


It is obligatory in some places and it is a good preventive measure, however it is not obligatory in general
you dont HAVE to but its recamended
you should all s0o where some thing like jeans and i long sheved t

also... If you go to a competition or a show then you HAVE to wear one or you will get in trouble (like at Pony Club)

The Vic Roads rules say that if you are over the age of 18 you don't have to wear a helmet any younger it is compulsery.

It probably depend on where you ride and what discipline/ style of riding you do. Where I live and ride, most people who ride English wear helmets. I'm not sure that they are made to wear them, but given the fact that certain English disciplines, like jumping, seem to involve more risk, people seem to choose to do so. I ride both English and Western. Currently, I do a lot more Western. Although most of the people I ride with don't wear helmets, I still wear my English helmet. I get some jabs, but, honestly, I fail to see how the trails are any less hazardous than the ring. As far as I know, unless you're somewhere where it's a liability issue, you don't have to wear a helmet, but its always a good idea to do so regardless.
