Tipperary and Troxel are both good brands. Where I work, anyway, Troxels are a little cheaper, but Tipperary are more comfortable/adjustable and look nicer.
And, yeah, I'll agree with Cannoka. Those Western Hat helmets are the cheesiest thing ever... I'd only ever consider one if you want to look silly! XD
If you can, find a store nearby that sells the helmets. It's always better to try them on, rather than guess!

I just want to say 2 things:
1) Your dad is awesome
2) I think you are making a very wise choice to wear a helmet - even if it isn't completely up to you ;) Good for you!! *throws confetti*

Thanks guys! =] Very helpful suggestions!

JustDressageIt, thank you. Not many western riders where them, but I know safety is the most important thing, for me and the horse. I was always scared of being made fun of, but now that I have 'grown up' I guess, I realize it doesn't matter what the people around here think. When it comes down to it, I will be safer than them.

Ooh, one last tip! If the people that work at the tack shop don't ask for a budget, what type of riding you need it for, etc, make sure you tell them! Other wise they will start pulling $300 charles owen helmets lol.
