So I need a new helmet. Dressage is my main focus and I'm looking to do a few local dressage shows this summer.
Right now I have a Troxel that is to big, to shiny, and a little dented.
I'd like to get something new, that will fit well, be well ventilated, look good-ish and of course be safe, and for under $200 Canadian. My head is a little on the large side... probably a 7 1/4 to a 7 3/8
I reeeeally like the look of this one but I'm concerned that the modern styling might not fit in the dressage ring:
Tipperary Sportage II Helmet [DRC2063]
I also like this one, but am concerned about ventilation:
Charles Owen JR8 Helmet-On Sale until Aug 31 2010 [DRC3438]
So any advice on these two helmets or on any alternatives?
