KATIE Price has faced criticism after riding a horse without wearing a protective helmet.
The 45-year-old rode the horse in a recent Instagram video but fans promptly raised safety concerns.
One user commented: “Please wear a riding hat! Doesn’t matter how safe you feel or your horse is….young riders look up to your equestrian style and might take the risk themselves.”
Another added: “I respect your horsemanship skills but nothing will save you if you don’t wear a hat. Have you seen a TBI? It’s not worth it. Wear a hat please.”
A third penned: “Where is your hat? Young rider’s will see this and think it’s ok. Doesn’t matter how much you trust your house, anything could happen.”
A fourth echoed: “Please wear a hat, you have lots of young people who follow you, your insurance if you have any will not pay out if you are not wearing a hat.
“I like you but please look after yourself, you have kids and a family that love you. I know a girl who fell without a hat in the arena and the horse smashed her skull, she died 29 days later.”
Katie previously faced backlash after allowing her two youngest children to sit on a horse without the protective gear.
Fans begged her to keep Bunny and Jett “safe” after she shared a photo of them posing without their riding hats or a saddle to hold on to.
One concerned follower said beneath her photo on Instagram: “No saddle or hats do you know how quickly a horse can bolt?”
Another echoed: “Love the pictures but where are your two babies riding hats, appreciate the horse is still at time of picture.”
Others defended the star and one remarked: “It’s her horse, I’m sure she knows what to look out for.”
