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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy with my new helmet! Wonderful, high quality helmet! I don't know how I survived without it before! Fit and comfort are outstanding!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Classy look, not the best fit I've had this helmet for a few years. I show in it, because I think it's the best looking helmet on the market. It's classy, not trendy. However, I don't usually use it for daily schooling because it is not super comfortable. It is too long from front to back, and I can't get a smaller size because then it would be too narrow from side to side.

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.
