So I am getting a new project horse when Junior finds a new home. He is a 16yo OTTB who doesn't have a whole lot of training (though he is a good boy undersaddle). I am going to try to turn him into a low level eventer. For the first few months he will just be doing a lot of arena jumping, but hopefully by summer I will be taking him to go XC schooling.
What I want to know, would be is a better idea to get a skull cap over a normal helmet (like an IRH or something)? I will be getting a new helmet sometime this month and I am just curious... I feel like skull caps are a lot safer, but I have been riding in an IRH for the last five+ years.
