It sounds like your riding helmets in the USA are a bit different to ours. Would love to see 'the sun visor' as that is a bit of a novelty in England! Our helmets tend to all look very similar. We can opt for the jockey style helmet and silk cover or we go for the black/grey traditional type sometimes with a bit of bling. Basically you go into a shop, choose your hat type and as everyone wears them no one actually gives a hoot. We just accept it. The only difference is dressage where you have top hats and bowlers but they are now being taken over by safety helmets too. Bottom line is wear your helmet with pride. No-one cares what you look like in it but you fall off your horse and end up with a head injury, the results can be life changing to the point where you may never need to bother about what you look like in a helmet again because you may never ride again. WE ALL LOOK FABULOUS IN RIDING HELMETS...DON'T WE?
