Why We Love This

The Charles Owen AYR8 Classic Helmet is the latest blend of tradition and technology. This low profile helmet combines fade resistant velvet side panels with a vented velvet center for maximum airflow. It's the perfect combination of classic and cool!  Stay-soft deerskin harness with GRpx technology for a snug and secure fit. Gently rounded brim and centrally positioned logo flatter your face, while the back of the helmet has a traditional ribbon to complete the polished show ring look. Super soft headband is embedded with high tech silver ions, providing built-in antimicrobial protection, keeping the helmet hygienic and free from odors.

HappinessGuarantee
At SmartPak, your happiness is at the core of everything we do. We back every order with our 100% Happiness Guarantee so that you can shop with confidence. If you're ever less than thrilled with your purchase, just let us know and we'll refund you right away. No hassles, no hoops, no kidding.
Hassle-Free Returns

SmartPak Returns

We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

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 Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

    Charles Owen AYR8 Classic Helmet is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Helmet This helmet has a classic look, fits perfectly, and is very comfortable. I love the light brown straps and the bow on the back. The leather straps are very soft and comfortable. I cannot wait to show in this helmet - it gives a classy hunter look!
    Date published: 2016-01-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant and classy I've noticed most people at the local hunter shows have the charles owen helmets with the silver embroidery on the back. Although I wanted my show helmet to be in style, I was really not a fan of that look, and I think they look best on young riders. Now that I'm showing as an adult, I wanted a more sophisticated look. This ary8 classic was a perfect blend of what I wanted, and fit significantly better than the less expensive similar helmets.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior modern helmet with a classic look I loved my old helmet (which I kept WAY too long - 20 years!) and haven't liked the look of modern helmets. I'm so glad CO made a classic-looking helmet with the button and bow. This helmet is SO light - again, comparing it to my extremely outdated one but it just feels a million times lighter. So far I haven't worn it in summer but I haven't had a sweaty head yet with it. It looks great on and doesn't give you the mushroom head look.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous comfortable hat I had one of these for five years and thought the classic might attract dirt, hair etc because of the velvet cover, but no...this stays nicer looking than the regular one. Very comfortable harness. Would strongly recommend for those who prefer the classic look.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful helmet A little pricey, but fit & look are beautiful. Have the older Hampton style, but bought this for the venting system.
    Date published: 2012-08-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this helmet !! This helmet is cool,light and confortable ! There is a huge difference in the fit and feel compared to my old helmet! I am very grateful my friend introduced me to Charles Owen!
    Date published: 2012-07-02
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luxury meets functionality!! If you need a nice helmet look no further! I debated over several other helmets for about a year before deciding on this one. I bought this helmet mostly for showing, but after using it a few times I have gladly hung up my old Troxel and IRH for this one. Comparatively it has a nice low profile so it’s not too bulky. I feel sporty, luxurious, and stylish in it. Charles Owen club all the way!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO STYLISH! the most beautiful of CO helmets with superior ventilation! helps in the Texas heat ( only use @ shows ) Overall awesome!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Comfortable Helmet Ever! Love it! Love it! Love it! I just had 6 inches of hair lopped off, and I found that my old helmet no longer fit, so I had to purchase a new one. I decided on the Charles Owen AYR8 Classic. I used the measuring chart provided by Smart Pak , and it proved to be right on the money. This helmet is low profile, with classic good looks. (I love the bow in the back). The fit is truly amazing! It fits like a glove, snug yet not uncomfortable!
