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'!).

    Charles Owen AYR8 Leather Look Helmet is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super sleek Bought a month ago and originally wanted a Samshield. This fit so much better and stands out in the show ring. Love how its vented and easy to clean but I wish it had a removable liner

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great style and comfortable fit! I have owned several Charles Own helmets and the AYR8 is the best by far! Fits great, easy to clean, love the vent in the front, and very durable helmet. The fabric held up very well and I'm excited to have the new leather look helmet!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from just what was wanted. My niece from Switzerland knew exactly what she wanted and ordered it when she arrived at my farm. It arrived and she was able to use it when here helping school my horses.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So pretty I bought the helmet because I liked the look of it online, I've never actually tried one on before. So I had to rely on the size chart, and thankfully the helmet fit perfectly. It looks wonderful in person and it's been holding up really well. There are no marks on it at all. I don't love the "leather" on the chin strap though, I'm a little concerned that it will irritate my sensitive skin in the summer.
