I've had one of the Ovation schooler helmets for the last 3 years and absolutely love it! I decided to purchase this version as I wanted something that would be sharper for clinics and showing. This fits the bill perfectly and still has the features I love:- Comes in XS/S for my weirdly small head. I've tried many other helmet brands and have had issues with them smashing my ears, hurting my head, etc, and these fit great. Love the dial-fit system too!- Removable coolmax liner - I always laugh when people at the barn are complaining about their (very expensive) smelly helmets in the summer. I can just wash my liner once a week and I'm good to go!- The finish and harness on my schooling helmet are very nice, but the competitor helmet looks extra sharp and does not have the OV on the front like the schooler helmet.- Price is fantastic! Makes it easier to replace if needed after a fall (haven't fallen off with an Ovation helmet on so can't speak to that).- Only downfall I can think of is that the liner leaves indents on your forehead when fitted correctly due to the way it's sewn. I solve this problem by placing moleskin along that area. Only thing I would change about this helmet.
