Riding helmet for oval head?

My mom had bought me a Troxel helmet, but it was too round for me. I'm going to a tack store that sells helmets this week. Any brands to look for? I think my head is kind of small..not too sure though. I'm taking Western riding lessons, so it just needs to be a schooling helmet..nothing expensive or fancy.

Oh yes! I had the same experience with Troxels. I used them for years , never knowing what a good helmet fit felt like.
Then I tried Tipperary! LOVE that helmet and I have a very oval head. So light and comfortable. I highly recommend them. Charles Owen are also stupendous but I cannot afford it when my 70$ Tipperary works so well.

I do not remember what brand mine is (it should be replaced it is so old). I had the same problem when I was helmet shopping.

Try everything on and wear it for a bit around the store.

Don't know if you can get them in America but I love my Harry Hall hat. I have a weird shape head at the back and hat fitting is a nightmare but my Harry Hall is perfect. Troxel wouldn't fit me when I tried it either.
