Horse Mad’s Horse Riding Helmets

Your riding helmet is good for about five years from the first time you put it on, depending on how much you use it. Even if you haven’t had an accident while you’ve been wearing it, swap it out once it’s hit its expiration date.

The materials start to wear out over time. If your riding helmet receives a hit, even a little one, its safety is compromised. It’s better to buy a fresh one online before you jump back in the saddle.

Also, your riding helmet should fit your head just right. If it’s too loose or too tight, retire it and buy a new one online.

What kind of riding you’re into decides what riding helmet you’ll need—whether it’s racing, dressage, or whatever you’re into. Each type of riding has its own set of risks and rules, so you’ll want a riding helmet that’s up to scratch and meets all the safety standards.

Look for ones that meet international equestrian standards. Make sure the riding helmet fits your head just right. Getting a properly sized helmet and staying away from second-hand or worn-out ones will keep you safe.

Think about things like removable liners to keep things clean and vents to let air in and prevent you from getting too sweaty. Look for features like wide peaks to keep the sun out of your eyes and straps you can adjust to fit snugly.

Now, when it comes to looks, everyone has their own style. Helmets come in all styles and materials—old-school velvet, leather, modern matte, etc.—so find one online that goes with your look.

Find something that fits your budget without skimping on safety. And make sure you get the right size. Horse Mad’s riding helmets are sized just right to give you a comfortable fit without any painful pressure points.

FAQ

Unfortunately, there’s no specific law in Ireland that mandates wearing a helmet while riding, so many riders choose not to bother with it (but they compromise their safety by doing so).

Yes, a horse riding helmet is meant to be a bit tight, but not so much that it’s uncomfortable or restrictive. A properly fitted helmet ensures safety while you’re out riding. It should sit firm on your head, not too tight, and not too loose. The chin strap should be snug but not pinching, and the lid shouldn’t budge when you shake your head. It needs to cover your head well and stay secure during any potential falls or accidents.

For those with long or thick hair tucked under their lid, how you handle it affects the riding helmet’s fit. To keep it tight and to look tidy, use two hair nets. Tie your hair up into a ponytail, flatten it against the head, add a second net, and then put on the helmet, ensuring a neat finish over the forehead. Changing your hair length might mess with the riding helmet’s fit.
