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 IRH XR9 Helmet is a low profile, attractive shape. Wicking lining. Sueded comfort harness. Comes with a free carry bag. Sizes 6 1/2-7 1/2. **ASTM F-1163-04a/SEI Certified.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great helmet! I bought this helmet last month because I outgrew my old one, and I love I just as much (same brand and model)! Very comfortable and great quality. It's not cheap but it's worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Nice Hlemet I bought this helmet to replace the schooling helmet after a fall. I did not expect it to be this nice. The fit is fabulous and the helmet itself looks great! This is a great helmet. If you do have a fall please replace your helmet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my head! I've had this helmet for a little under a year and love it - it's durable, fits great, and is very attractive. But the most important thing is I'm pretty sure it saved my life last weekend when I took a fall cross county and fell directly on my head. I still had a concussion and some chipped teeth, but I was able to get up and walk away. For that, it is priceless. I will definitely buy a new one to replace it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So comfortable! I've only had this helmet for a few weeks and I've been super careful with it so I can't speak to the durability. But It's a very comfortable helmet that looks similar to the much more expensive CO's. I wish it didn't have the silver metal IRH logo on the front, maybe if it were black or less obvious, but otherwise, I'm pleased with it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Helmet I have had this helmet for two years and recently ordered a replacement. This helmet held up beautifully for schooling and showing and I was so sad when I noticed the back of the helmet made a cracking noise when I pressed on it. I would have been happy to keep the new XR9 I ordered but the sizing has changed and the helmet no longer fits me. The helmet is lightweight and looks great. I think it's a better helmet than the Charles Owen helmets in this price range - I ordered the JR8 as well and had a really hard time getting my hair to look nice from the back in the JR8 as the harness doesn't provide as much covereage as the XR9.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Helmet for the price I really love this helmet. It does not have as much padding as the Charles Owen but its a really nice helmet for the price that you pay. The sizing is a little off. I am a 6 7/8 in CO and a 6 3/4 on this helmet. Its very comfy though and did fit me really well. Looking forward to doing my IHSA competition with this and using it for a long time!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Helmet! I recently purchased this helmet as a new show helmet. I love it! It looks very similar to the Charles Owen GR8 but at half the price. It is comfortable and runs a tiny bit large but came with inserts so it's fixable. Overall it's a great helmet and I would definitely recommend it!
