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'!).

Low profile geometry and extreme ventilation make the new IRH Elite Xtreme Helmet one of the most comfortable and fashionable helmets on the market. The center front vents together with the right, left and 2 rear vent ports ensure maximum air intake and the optimal air flow needed for cooling. The helmet's harness system is completely adjustable and is designed at the back to accommodate a pony tail without affecting the helmet's fit. The IRH Elite Xtreme Helmet is ASTM F-1163-04a/SEI Certified.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Helmet! This is a really great helmet! I ordered the long oval and it fit my head better than any other helmet I have tried on. The only problem is that it is cut so low that it touches my ears and folds them over. I really tried to look past this because the helmet was great in every other way, but it was too painful for my ears so I did have to send it back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this helmet and they improved it! The features that I need are the grey color(stays cooler)shape and comfort. I had an older model and loved it, now they have added a washable liner and a better quality harness.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight, good fit This helmet is lightweight, a major requirement for the heat of South Texas riding. It is also comfortable and looks pretty good. I cannot comment on durability as I have only worn it a few times.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Update on July 15 Post I did go ahead and return the original helmet, exchanging it for the next larger size. What a difference! Definitely think about sizing up on this one, and be wary of the sizing chart. By the chart, I should wear a 7. I ordered a 7 1/8 since that is what I usually wear. I returned that for a 7 1/4 for a perfect fit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cooler helmet The IRH Elite Xtreme Helmet is nicely vented. It stays a little cooler in the hot summer heat than others I've used. It also has a modern design and many safety features.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall Good Helmet Purchased this as a second helmet. The fit is a little tight, but I'm afraid the next size up would be too large. My other helmet has the adjustment knob, whereas this doesn't, so "it is what it is." The helmet appears well made and I don't have the bubble-head look. The Helmet Awareness Day sale made it more affordable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this helmet! I love this helmet. It's so great looking and super comfortable. Very cool in the summer. I have the grey and silver, and in the year since I bought it there are no scratches or marks.

    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...
