how to...

Hi Everyone

I was at a PC meeting last night and one person there was showing us what she did to her helmet by falling off She cracked the back of it by falling flat on her back. You can't notice it from the outside, but when you look inside, you can see how badly damaged the helmet is.

I have fallen off and banged my head pretty hard too and but my helmet looks fine from the ourside. However, it has a hard, inner lining that I can't take out to see if its damaged inside at all. People tell me this lining can come out but I can't work out how. Has anyone taken out the lining of their helmet before? If so, can you tell me how?

I have an Aussie Rider helmet if anyone is familar with this type.

When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk: he trots the air; the earth sings when he touches it; the basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes. ~William Shakespeare

Sorry I don't know how to get it out either!

I've seen helmets that look fine on the outside but aren't on the inside too and I think it would be a good idea for you to check it if you can but like you said you need to get the lining out first!

Anyone know how?

Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed.

Not sure how to take out the lining, but most companies say that you should replace each helmet after every fall. A lot of them offer warranties for a replacement.
