We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer. That means this item isn't eligible for additional 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 4.7481 out of 5 by 131.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Helmet I bought this helmet as an upgrade from the Charles Owen JR8. At first glance, it is a very attractive helmet. I always put my hair up in a hairnet when I ride and the harness in the back is quite helpful. The air vents help, but they don't make a big difference. The outside of the helmet can be cleaned using a damp rag, Ive found that quite helpful.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just OK..... I love CO helmets on everyone else... but they just don't work for my oval head. Lots of space on the sides, and just uncomfortable. This one also gave me the definite mushroom head! I have found the IRH long ovals work better for me, along with the (sadly) spendy Samshields. I will be sending this back for an IRH instead.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charles Owen AYR8 My daughter moved up from braids to hair-under-the-helmet so a new show helmet was warranted. She loves the styling of the helmet and I like the added security and the vents to help keep her cooler. The GR8 didn't look as attractive on her. It was great for her to be able to try both helmets at home via Smartpak.

    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...
