Risky Ride: Some People NEVER Learn

This video 'short' documents the true story of one teen aged rider who lives on a small family farm. Despite an injury from a fall, with high direct medical costs (treatment and rehabilitation) and substantial indirect costs to his family (lost work time, e.g.), he stubbornly refuses to wear a helmet when riding, except when required to do so at 4-H. The 'message' of this documentary short is "Some People Never Learn -- Don't Be One of Them!"
