  1. Horse Tack and Equipment
    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...
  2. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Hello, I'm trying to purchase a Troxel helmet. I would love to get an ovation helmet, but sadly they don't really fit my head. The only thing though I'm not sure if I should get the Troxel Liberty or Intrepid? Do the fit differently or anything? IS there really any difference? Any help would...
  3. Hunters and Hunter Seat Equitation
    I'm on the hunt for a helmet and I was originally going to go with the Troxel Liberty(as I don't have $100+ to buy a really fancy helmet with), but many people are saying that the Tipperary Sportage helmet is amazing, so i'm considering that. Though I really want something I could use for...
  4. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Hello guys! I'm having a bit of trouble finding a helmet. I really don't have $100+ to spend on a fancy helmet (Charles owen or something like that.) So it's Basically like Ovation or Troxel (these were the ones at my tack shop I could try on.) I love the look of the Ovation schooling helmet...
  5. Horse Show Clothing
    Hello! So I am about to start showing in English! I'm just getting back into the discipline after riding western for a few years and I have most of my show clothing ordered... except for a helmet! I was wondering if any of y'all knew of any inexpensive helmets that I could wear to a show. I...
  6. Trail Riding
    does anyone have any pics of head injuries from riding accidents I would like to show it to someone who has no respect for people who wear helmets
  7. Dressage
    I'm confused. The new FEI helmet rule for dressage states: Athletes 18 years and older, riding horses seven years and older may wear a top hat/bowler instead of protective headgear at the actual Competition and the warming-up directly prior to the Competition (with no break before the...
  8. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I've been riding for a while now and I thinks it's time I stop borrowing my instructor's helmets. Does anyone know a reasonable priced good quality helmet that they can recommend. Or share some of the helmets you have maybe. Thank you!
  9. Horse Shows
    I always like to wear my helmet, even when showing, because you never know when your horse is going to decide to spook. I've always shown in a cowboy hat when I show my trainers horses, but now that my own pony is getting better at western pleasure, I'd like to show him instead. I'm not all...
  10. Horse Talk
    Hey, I need some guidance with buying a riding helmet. I am looking on Dover Saddlery website and there seems to be a variety of helmets and wide price range. Can anyone tell me if this helmet is a good one to have for a beginner? This one is inexpensive and certified, but do you think it does...

  12. Jumping
    hi, I recently fell and had a concussion. I have decided I need a new helmet. I am eyeing the new Tipperary. The only problem is that I am a Pony Clubber and for formals, it is required to have a black helmet, but I recently went to games(were I had my concussion) and I saw a girl with a...
