    Troxel makes some very nice helmets (I personally own Orion). I'd suggest to make a new post in "Tack" section - you'll get LOTS of advices and opinions on helmets...

    Oh I know, I was just saying in general.
    I love Troxel; that's all I get!

    Troxels are great because most of them have a dial-a-fit system so the helmet can snug up to the base of the skull to eliminate any rocking back and forth.
    Tipperary makes a great helmet; it comes down lower in the back than many other helmets and has a good safety design.
    International makes great helmets as well - my first few were Internationals.
    I personally own a Charles Owen GR8 - it cost me an arm and a leg, but it has carbonfiber technology that is a little more superior to, say, a Tipperary or Troxel.

    I have never rode without a helmet and I will definitely never ride without one in the future!
    Sadly helmets don't always work like they should, like for Jessica Forsyth. Her horse fell on her and crushed her skull even tho she was wearing a helmet. (check youtube; jessboomer) it's sooo sad :(

    I am going to be honest, I use to wear my helmet when I took lessons, but now.. I don't wear one. I know the risk and I know what can happen, and if it is my time to go.. it is my time, and my family knows how I see death.

    I am a very alert person, and even with that, I know the dangers.

    Good on you guys for wearing helmets when you ride.

    Im the same way. I wear a helmet when I have to, other times I just don't. I have no problem with others wearing them it is just me. I don't want to get murdered for my veiws either, it is just the way I am. I rather die falling off of a horse then in a car accident (which is more likely to happen where I live)...

    I don't wear a helmet ever. I have a "show hat" that I wear when showing hunters (asb hunters), and other than that, I've got a bare noggin!

    Wow I feel really dumb for not wearing a helmet, this post will at least get me to look into them (cost/styles).I know my stubborn husband wont wear one. But Im not against the idea.
