    If your CO is under 3 years old, they have a great replacement program. As long as you have the receipt of the purchase, if the helmet is involved in a fall they will replace the helmet for a fraction of the cost.

    I highly doubt they'll look down on you for wearing a schooling helmet. People wear their schooling helmets to lessons & clinics held by Olympians.

    They won't look down on you for wearing a schooling helmet. Trust me. My trainers (one has been to Rolex and one has been short listed for the Beijing Olympics) wear schooling helmets when riding at home. One wears this ugly faded blue velvet helmet that he really should have thrown out a long time ago. Haha

    Which Olympians are these horses coming from?

    I think the O' Conner's might still have a few down there, since my trainer is very good friends with them

    Hmm. I thought the O'Connors had already relocated back to VA but I could be wrong. Be prepared to pay some big bucks when buying from them! Is your trainer an event rider? I might know who she is if she is friends with the O'Connors.

    They must have some newer horses they are selling because the ones on the website are all sold.

    Regarding helmets and olympians -

    I personally know a woman who went to the Olympics last round with the Canadian team.
    She's been known to go to schooling shows and even high-end auctions (the kind where buyers come from all over to buy our Warmbloods) in dirty breeches and a helmet that's older than dirt.
