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 new Medalist helmet from IRH Helmets gives you gold-medal style and world-class protection. With supreme ventilation, lightweight construction, and rich, durable velveteen, the Medalist is a must-have for any rider. The Medalist features an elegant, black, three-point harness and IRH’s low-profile geometry, which minimizes the helmet profile and maximizes the cooling airflow through the top and rear air vents. ASTM F1163.04a/USA/SEI/EN-1384/CE Mark Europe.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Schooling Helmet! I bought this helmet to replace another IRH that I had had for the recommended 5 years. It is a GREAT value. The first time I pulled it out of the box, my mom thought that I had bought a show helmet. The design is classic and sleek. So far the velvet has stayed nice. If it gets dust on it, it easily brushes off. Highly recommend for schooling or lower level showing

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy This helmet is wonderful. I bought a size 7 and it fits perfectly, and it is probably one of the most comfortable helmets i have ever worn. I am in no way disappointed and i would defiantly recommend that other people buy the helmet.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Doesn't fit!!! I got a 6 7/8 sized helmet and it was way too small. Then I got the 7 1/8 sized one and it was huge!!! They didn't have the 7 so i returned it and am going to save up for a Charles Owen instead. The helmet is really nice , but they just didn't have my right size.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice... but didn't keep it It was a very nice helmet - GREAT value. I am not sure about durability as I didn't keep it. It fit true to head size for me BUT it was NOT low profile. It was very high, mushroom head effect - on me anyway! Had to send it back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value! When I found out that I was going to have some young visitors spend Spring Break at my farm, I purchased some of these helmets in different sizes to make sure that I have properly fitting head protection for everyone. I was totally surprised when these arrived. The helmet has a lot of the style and comfort features of my more expensive helmets--and I LOVE the classic styling (and so did my visitors)! (It even has the ribbon in the back.) The helmets are also somewhat breathable and are light-weight, but not light like the totally vented Troxels. And due to the limited breathability, this helmet would be fine year-round if you're likely to wear it for hour-long lessons, but probably not your best choice for longer use in the summer heat. I totally recommend this helmet if you're just starting out and need something that will protect your noggin and please your trainers--or just prefer a traditional equestrian look.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No mushroom head!! Love the helmet.. covers my ears just right so they don't pop out and does not create the mushroom head appearance. Thank you!
