Hello! I am a beginner rider. I was shopping around in a thrift store when by chance I saw what looked like an English riding helmet. It was only $20, so I bought it.
After I bought it (go figure) I noticed it had a tag that claimed it offered no protection in case of a fall.
The brand is International Riding Helmets. Can someone help shed some light on what type of helmet this is? Tag says a hunt cap, but I guess I really want to know is if this has any use to a beginner like me?
Also, it does not have chin straps. Can these be added or was it made like that? I have attached pictures. I know next to nothing about riding equipment, so I apologize if any of these are obvious questions.
