  2. Riding and Barn Wear
    Hi everyone, I started a few months ago to practice horseback riding. Until now I've always used the accessories provided by the riding school. It's been a while since I started and I start to feel the necessity to have my own accessories: saddle, helmet, etc.... I've been thinking to buy...

    Hi everyone! I have a question about helmet odor. I have a OneK MIPS helmet that has a strong smell of horse pee :( I was able to get the smell out of the helmet liner by washing it however the hardshell is more complicated. My helmet is stored in a helmet bag and I wipe it down with a damp...

    Hey all! I have been searching for a replacement helmet for my Charles Owen Ayr8 helmet. I'd be using it occasionally for schooling, but mostly for any shows.

    I'm here to ask the dreaded question. I'm on my fourth concussion at 18 years old, and as much as I know it's not the helmet's fault, I'm a tad desperate for answers. I've had concussions in GPAs, Charles Owens, and OneK's. I don't fit in the Back on Tracks. I'm looking to replace my OneK after...
  9. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    I am looking for a riding helmet. I've read that ASTM approved are a safe option but other than that I know very little about choosing a helmet. In my area, very few people wear helmets and I understand that it is a personal choice, but as an unskilled beginner I feel like I should at least give...

    I've never worn a helmet riding (other than cheap troxel in 4h)...I'm a mom now though and would like to start! What are your favorite helmets for casual riding? What about for show? I'm looking for something moderately priced. I have a larger head, so I'm also looking for something that has...

    Has anyone experienced neck strain from wearing a helmet? I'm new to helmet wearing--scared into it when a stablemate died from a head injury after an uneventful looking slide from a horse.

    Hello, I've just been told that because my IRH Equi-pro helmet is cheaper then a Troxel liberty that it's not certified by the SEI, like what? I have a strong feeling that this is not true at all, but wanted to get a second opinion. Everywhere I've looked (websites and even the helmet packaging...
  14. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    It's been over 10 years since I bought my last helmet, and I am guessing things have changed. I need a new one, and I am wondering: Buying a inexpensive one or a expensive one? Is there really any difference there? Also is there a benefit from the ones without velvet? Should I go classic or...

    My current helmet is the IRH XR9 (pink, 7 1/4), I like it because it fits large which I need because I have a big head and thick hair.

I'm open to other opinions, but...
