Schooling Helmets?

I ride Hunter/Jumper and I need to get a new schooling helmet. What helmets do you like best? I would like to get one that won't make my head look like a mushroom. What kind should I look at?

I love the line of ovation helmets out now. and they are very low profile. I ride in the ovation schooling helment. It has a name something like that. The extreme is nice too!

I have found nothing better than the Tipperary Sportage as an all-around lid.

International Riding Helmets | IRH Riding Helmets keeps you current with today's trends

I have had my IRH helemt since I was...oh 10 or 12??? It still fits, still looks amazing(it's velvet and has held up extreamly well) is comfortable, doesn't make my head sweat and was reasonably priced. I don't know what they are going for now days but that's my 2 cents.

I use a Eurohunter Hi Lite Pro for both showing and schooling. I've got one for schooling and one for showing. I also used to have a Dublin Onyx which I really liked and an Aussie Rider which I absolutely hated (hello bubble head!).

...Every rider has that one horse that changes everything about them...

I don't know if I could say it is my favorite yet (just not enough miles in it yet) but I have new Ovation as well and it is very comfy and a great schooling helmet.

I've been using an Ovation Deluxe Schooler. Light, breathable, doesn't look goofy... love it! I forget that I'm even wearing it sometimes.
