We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer. That means this item isn't eligible for additional discounts or promotions.

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'!).

Ever wish that you could change out a sweaty helmet for a fresh one between rides? Charles Owen is delighted to introduce the new V8 helmet. Featuring a detachable head liner which can be removed and is machine washable, the V8 is Charles Owen’s most versatile helmet yet.

For optimal performance, the Charles Owen V8 also features:

  • “Free Fit” system which increases airflow across the forehead. The frontal air channel combines with 10 ventilation slots for exceptional cooling and evaporation.
  • Smart quick release buckle in a high strength alloy fastens the new 6-point patented GRpx® harness for unsurpassed stability.
  • Microfiber suede side panels that pair perfectly with the extra fine mesh center, covering the high gloss black or heat reflective silver painted shell.

Certified by SEI to ASTM F1163 and Kitemarked to PAS 015 and BSEN 1384.

    Charles Owen V8 Helmet is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this helmet!!! I got this helmet with the national helmet awareness sale and couldn't be happier with it! I have owned several Charles Owen helmets in the past and this is by far my favorite! You can't see the vents in the front but boy do they work! If I am riding outside and there it's a windy day I can feel it through the helmet. It was strange to get used to at first bit helps SO much! Definitely don't sweat as much as I used to in my old helmets and LOVE that I can take the liner out and wash it when I need too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to the CO products! I bought this helmet with increased air flow in mind. This is not only a great, sleek looking helmet, it's front forehead ventilation is amazing. Here in New England the weather is very unpredictable, most of the time bringing hot and humid summers. This helmet gives great ventilation, I highly recommend! I found the fit ran true to any other Charles Owen helmet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this helmet! I bought this after wearing a GPA SpeedAir for years. The airflow is 10x better with the CO helmet, without all those crazy vents. It looks great and fits well (more on that below). I love the idea of the detachable liner since I sweat a lot.Pros:*Amazing airflow. Very cool.*Harness is very comfortable.*Helmet fit is very comfortable. Feels much more padded/soft than the GPA.*Looks great.*Replaceable/washable liner.Cons:*It's a little harder to keep clean than painted helmets*Extra liners are impossible to find in stock. Customer service at CO said that liners need to be ordered through tack stores.*I have a round GPA-shaped head and the CO is more oval. However, the extra padding in the CO means that even though it's slightly tight I don't have pressure points.

    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...
