We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer so you won't find it cheaper anywhere else. This also means we can't apply any further 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'!).

Why We Love This

The Charles Owen AYR8 Helmet is a low profile helmet that combines fashionable microfiber suede side panels, with a mesh centre to maximize air flow through the 12 ventilation apertures, achieving the perfect combination of cool equestrian chic.

Developed for the equestrian athlete the slimline helmet uses advanced modern materials and incorporates the latest in thermoregulation for helmets to keep your head cool. The leather harness incorporates the revolutionary Grpx™ technology. The harness is coordinated to the specific colors within the range to give that complete finished look.

The brim is gently rounded to flatter the face and a press stamped metallic logo is positioned centrally above the peak. Another embroidered logo features on the back of the helmet to replace the traditional ribbon. The super soft headband is embedded with high tech silver ions, providing built-in antimicrobial protection, helping to keep the helmet hygienic and free from smells.

    Charles Owen AYR8 Helmet is rated 4.7426 out of 5 by 136.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this helmet, but my head is too round. I only use this helmet for showing and a tipperary sportage for schooling. Personally this helmet is too oval shaped for my round head and it gives me headaches. Other than that I love the classy look and the fact that it doesn't give me a bubble head.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AYR8 I've had this helmet for 4 almost 5 years now, and its held up great. Would recommend to anyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great style and fit I love this helmet! It is comfortable and is "A" circuit appropriate for hunters and eq. I even have a second one that I use for schooling... that way my new helmet stays looking sharp for the show ring!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit I bought this helmet a month ago and am loving the fit. I haven't worn it in the heat of the summer but I think it will be fine.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Helmet-Perfect for Shows and Schooling! I had struggled with finding a new helmet for quite some time. I have an oval-shaped head and tried 9 different helmets (my head must really be shaped like a brick!) before I landed on this one. The fit is great. It starts out a wee bit snug but the padding adjusts within a ride or two. Helmet looks great as well. I can wear it schooling or for shows.The reason this is only 4 stars is the chin strip/harness. For the price, I would expect a beautifully sewn harness out of quality materials. This is fake leather with raw edges on it-disappointing given how much this helmet costs.
