Protect Your Child With a Certified Riding Helmet
Find the Perfect Riding Helmet

For your child's safety, a riding helmet should be one of your child's first equestrian purchases. Specially designed for horseback riding, our helmets feature ASTM/SEI certification and feature protection against high speed and hard impact falls. 
 

How do I fit a riding helmet?

 
A riding helmet needs to fit properly in order to protect your child. A hat that is too loose can slid over your child's eyes in the saddle and in the event of a fall may even slide off.
 
You'll want to measure the circumference of your child's head right above her eyebrows, ensuring that the tape remains level. Keep this measurement at hand, and you can easily convert it to standard hat sizes using the size charts listed to the right of the drop down menu on most of our helmets. 

Some things to consider when choosing a helmet:

  • Soft padding, fancier decorations and higher tech materials don't necessarily mean you have a safer helmet.
  • Helmets need to be replaced every two to five years, depending on how frequently you ride.
  • ALWAYS replace your helmet after an accident. You may not see damage, but there could be microscopic cracks that affect its safety performance
  • Some helmets feel heavier than others, but the actual weight difference is minimal.

At Equestrian Collections, we are firm advocates of Riding Helmets. While no piece of safety equipment can keep you safe all the time, we believe that all riders should wear ASTM and SEI certified helmets any time they are mounted. 

Horseback Riding Helmets have come a long way since the velvet "hard hats" of yesteryear. English Show Helmets maintain the traditional look of the velvet hunt cap, but are padded, comfortable, vented for airflow and MUCH safer than the old caps. For the schooling rider, Troxel , Ovation and many other brands have large selections of reasonably priced schooling helmets, many which have adjustable fits so your young rider will not grow out of them in a single season. 

And the Western rider is no longer left out in regards to helmets. Western Riding Helmets are required in many youth and speed events, and increasingly even the adults are donning helmets for rodeo events. 

Backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee, shop for for Kids Riding Helmets from top brands like Troxel Helmets on Equestrian Collections - where you will find the most selection of Apparel and Accessories at every day low prices.
