Every ride, every time.
Hey kids! Just a quick PSA that even the actual end of the world is no reason to ignore basic equestrian safety precautions! Whether you’re jumping, hacking, outrunning a host of Biblical entities made of wings, flaming wheels, and thousands of eyes, or just doing flat work, make sure your helmet is properly fitted and fastened whenever you’re mounted. It’s just like wearing a seatbelt!
And if I’m a bit pushy to Sal about it before we head out on missions from our respective bosses, it’s only because I’m worried about losing my only human friend left on Earth after the whole Rapture business. (And no worries, Sal did eventually put the helmet on.)
Jenny Kammerer is a professional artist, video producer and frustrated Philadelphia sports fan who’s been in the saddle since the age of four. When she was 16, she met her Paint/QH/Draft cross Gibson (aka Guitar Solo) as a green two-year-old, and quickly settled into the training side of equestrianism, drawing inspiration from the techniques of Pat Parelli and other natural horsemanship teachers. Known for most of her childhood as both the awkward artsy one and the weird horse girl, she always seemed destined to draw nonsensical horse cartoons. In addition to her independent illustration work, she currently teaches painting classes at Painting With A Twist and produces short-form documentaries that can be seen on www.Horse.TV.
