Most "fashionable" helmets

Hi folks!

So I've decided I probably ought to wear a helmet and the barn order of the place I am moving too is begging me to get one. I've never liked wearing them for vanity reasons and because they are so hot and suffocating and uncomfortable.

So! I'm going to buy one but I want to know which are the most fashionable and least dorky helmet looking types in your opinion. I ride English/dressage if that helps.

Price isn't really an issue because I doubt helmets can get too outrageous and I'd rather be safe and look cute doing it and that's worth some extra dough to me.

Thanks! Pictures are love!

In my experience, even if you get the most fashionable helmet, you can still look like a total freak. I suggest that when you figure out the brands, styles that you want, go where they have a mirror, or take one with you.....I didn't do that and now I have a very popular and in style helmet that makes ME look like I'm wearing a giant TupperWare bowl on my head. :(

I guess it's sort of like buying sunglasses...just because Raybans were all the rage in the 80's, didn't mean they made everyone who wore them look all the rage lol. They make different styles for a reason......

BTW, anybody want a Dark Blue Tupperware looking helmet????

LOL good point! I'm just concerned that the local tack places don't have a great selection while you can find EVERYTHING on the internet!

I love my helmet, I feel like a helmet model with it on, lmao. I don't know the brand, but it looks like this : http://www.horseridingclothingandsad...lmet01-150.jpg

I love it! Its so comfortable. I am currently looking for a new helmet, but im having a hard time finding one that is as nice as that one! But be careful, it is possible to get a helmet like that,that makes you look like a bubble head, lol. Let me know when you find one that nice!

For dressage (or any discipline for that matter), plain black velvet is always, has always been and will always be the classiest look. As a bonus they are also usually less expensive. Shop around and find a brand you like, I have an IRH that I love dearly.

Oh, one critical thing I forgot to mention! I live in Los Angeles and it gets HOT HOT HOT here! I need something that breathes! One of the biggest reasons I haven't wanted to wear a helmet because they are suffocating! The traditional black velvet kind just make me sweat thinking about it!

Kind of leaning towards something like http://www.smartpakequine.com/produc...ctClassid=2656 ?

I like the Tipperary Sportage; it's not the black velvet type, though.

Not classical dressage by any stretch, but personally I really like the look and feel of this one.... EquestrianCollections
