Need Help finding toddler riding helmet

Okay, so I am 100% pure western and I have never rode with a helmet on, lol, BUT that is no excuse for my daughter not to have one on. She just turned 2 August 9th and my friend has a kid safe horse that I will ride with her in front of me but even then, it would make me feel better if she had a helmet on. Their daughter who is 2 1/2 has a helmet but it is way too big for my daughter. I know I will have to measure her head size but does anyone know of a good store website that has fairly cheap priced helmets?

I know money shouldn't be an issue on a helmet but we are low on money but I don't mind spending some for a helmet. I looked on ebay and only really seen 1 but it was $69 and to be honest I can't afford that even though I know it isn't that bad of a price.

I would love to find something pink or girly BUT safety is more important than color of course. The girly helmet is just a plus.

My daughter Kaydence is the one in front with Gracie her friend in back. Haha, even though they are both 2, 4 months age difference you can definitely see how TINY my daughter is, haha.

This picture was just for pictures and I was on the other side holding both their legs, but I still want a helmet for my daughter when she rides with me. Please, any information on where to get a helmet would be GREAT. Thanks so much.

$69 is a really good price for a helmet.

Most manufacturers won't even bother making helmets for kids under 8; they feel that any child under 8 "doesn't have the motivation or attention span to ride" -- try explaining that to my former self; I started riding at 4.

Troxel makes pink helmets and periwinkle helmets (I had one for the longest time!)

The Troxel Spirits (first pic) are $40 on Dover right now.

I would suggest the Spirit because it has an adjustable dial on the back. It really helps for a secure fit.

Haha, well here they start kids at age 3 in lead line around barrels. My daughter will be 3 next August, lol. Well I knew $69 wasn't a bad price but we just hit a huge landslide. :( There for money is tight for another couple of months. It is hard enough for food as it is. I am happy that we just bought 3 tons of hay, lol. I know this sounds silly BUT would a bike riding helmet work? The thing is everything I see in the stores are for 3+ in age. Also, haha, if you even TRY and tell my daughter she can't ride a horse, oh my oh my, she throws a FIT, she absolutely adores and loves horses. I know she is to young to learn anything but she loves being along for the ride, I just want to know and feel that she is safe though. *sighs* I guess I will have to scrape up some change and what I can find and possibly get her that helmet.

Even the small Troxel might be too big for a toddler.

I would seriously recommend going to your local tack shop and seeing which one fits her head best, then shop online for the best deal. Money is well spent when put into a helmet.

The helmet manufacturers that I deal with are of the mentality that under 8 year old kids don't ride. It's rediculous.
Anyways.. like I said, I'm afraid that the Troxel small will be too big; I fit a lot of kids with helmets. It also depends on her head shape; the Tipperary Sportage will fit differently than a Troxel Spirit, will fit differently than the Troxel Legacy Gold... etc.

See that is the problem here, I don't have a tack shop nearby at all. I have to always get my saddles or anything off of craigslist or ebay and just pray they fit right. :( The only thing close to being a tack store here is tractor supply but they don't have children's helmets there. :( The one I seen for $69, I am wondering now if it fits a toddler. Here if you are used to fitting them, can you tell me if the measurements on this one sound right for toddler size? Hope this website works. Lol.

Okay so I just now measured her head and she is 19". So does that mean the helmet that fits for the 19"-21" would fit fine? I actually found one for $49, let me know if this is a good brand. It is AEGIS? Excuse my lack of knowledge on helmets, lol.
