As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

The GR8 helmet by Charles Owen is at the cutting edge of equestrian fashion. The GR8 Helmet is covered with a microfibre suede material that has been treated to afford it protection against marking and scuffing. The brim is gently rounded to flatter the face, and a press stamped metallic logo is positioned centrally above the peak. Another embroidered logo is featured on the back of the helmet where a ribbon would traditionally be. The harness is reinforced with nylon for additional strength, safety and security. The headband is interwoven with silver ions throughout the lining, providing anti-microbial protection against sweat and odors.

Kitemarked to PAS015 and BSEN 1384. Certified by SEI to ASTM F1163. Black with Charcoal Stripe, Brown with Tan Stripe or Black with Black Stripe. Breast Cancer Benefit, Midnight Navy/Silver and Black/Hunter are custom styles. Please allow 6-9 weeks for delivery.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing helmet! I bought this for the show season and to have a nicer more classic look when i ride! Its great! It cleans up easily, looks professional, and is great quality! I bought mine overseas because it is cheaper! But overall its my favorite style I've tried overall!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Favorite Didn't purchase from SmartPak (although i totally would have because i looooove their customer service) but i am in love with this helmet. i have a larger helmet size and it just molds to your head so wonderfully. i would advise watching the video about how to fit a charles owen, you have to try it on 3 times before you know how it fits, wonderful helmet, cleans up great with the cleaner and looks stunning in the show ring. will repurchase when necessary

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the helmet but snap broke in less than a year Had the helmet less than a year and the snap came out of the strap.  SmartPak did offer me a discount on a new one but did not replace.  I like the helmet huts disappointed that it had to be replaced so quickly!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Had to replace in less than a year Like the look and feel of the Charles Owen. However mine at 10 months of use had to be replaced as the snap came out. Smartpak did assist with a discounted replacement but rather disappointed in the short life mine had (used 4-5x) a week for 10 months

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Helmet Ever I absolutely love this helmet! It is sleek, stylish and functional! I got it for my birthday, and I loved it so much that I bought a second for schooling! It is very comfortable to wear, and it takes wear really well. I use it every day, and it is still going really strong! It does get a little warm in the summer, but I haven't had a big issue with that. I would definitely buy one again in the future!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Another vote for "too hot!" The helmet looks good and cleans up easily and has stayed smelling sweet over the last couple of years, but it is so HOT! My hair is totally soaked after every ride unless it's a < 45 degree day. The liner also compacted after a short time and I had to have considerable foam lining added to keep it snug.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Went with blue this time! I needed a new helmet because I had more hair than when I bought my first GR8, and it was five years old. I went with the midnight color and I am SO HAPPY I did. I get compliments everywhere and it is beautiful. It's a dark and rich color, really love it. Makes me smile every time I pull it out to wear. I went up one size and it fits perfectly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this helmet I originally purchased the JR8, but it looked like a bubble. This one is more low profile and very comfortable. I love the harness fastening.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
