Charles Owen microsuede. Much sleeker than the less expensive schooling helmets I usually have. One has to pay more to get the same safety rating with less material.
Yes, it is a Charles Owen, but from the “lower” end of their price range. The number induces slight staggering rather than a full-on faint.
Since I am often the only one in my saddle seat academy classes with a helmet, I went for as traditional and as elegant a look as possible. Also usable for dressage and hunters.

The lack of helmets is so disturbing. I am delighted to see most of the rest of the “English” riding horse world moving toward them.
It is possible to get ‘cowboy’ hats with helmets built in – forgot which catalogs i saw them in.
Helmets. Every ride, every time. You are performing a great service to the riding world. Thank you.
Classy! Problem is, I can picture that covered in blonde dog or cat hair in no time flat. But that will give you something to do when you’re nervous. Be sure to invest in a lot of Scotch tape! 😉
