Your horse is stunning by the way!!
I like Tipperarys too - I ride in one for endurance. I agree about the brim - not much of a sunblocker. So I went out and bought one of those wrap around neoprene visors that velcro on - never looked at myself first, just got on and rode. When the ride photographer showed me my picture from the ride, I never used that particular visor again! I wear a size large helmet to begin with (which makes my head look way too big for my body) and the visor made it look as if I had a beach umbrella stuck to my head! LOL!
There just isn't really a way to look fashionable in a helmet - safety is first - but I think we all keep trying anyway because we can't help it!
