Why We Love This

The GR8 helmet by Charles Owen is at the cutting edge of equestrian fashion. First introduced in 1998, the iconic Gr8 launched the unique, low profile style for which Charles Owen is known.  Sleek and sporty, the Gr8 is triple certified to three international safety standards so you can ride with the knowledge you’re well protected.  Available in an array of microfiber suede combinations with a color coordinated harness which is reinforced with nylon for added security.  Exceptionally wee fitting, the Gr8 now features a removable, washable headband that can be easily replaced to extend the lifespan of your helmet
  • Elegant low-profile design and gently rounded brim for a flattering look
  • Color coordinated suede harness is reinforced with nylon for additional st4rength, safety and security
  • Washable, removable liner provides anti-microbial protection against sweat and odors
  • Certified SEI to ASTM F1163-15, VG1 01.040 2014-12, Kitemarked to PAS015:2011, Kitemarked to VG1 01.040 2014-12

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 request a return with a FREE SmartPak return label from your Order History within 60 days of 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 GR8 Helmet is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 87.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helmet good, strap okay The helmet was on sale and works well, it is snug but looks good. The chin strap was a bit of a surprise, not a clasp, not much room to adjust length and the it snaps to fixed side. I have small chin so it works fine
    Date published: 2019-09-12
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Helmet but NO Ventilation Nice fit and attractive style, but absolutely no vents. I bought it online and didn't realize it didn't have vents. I kept it because I like the look. Will be great for fall and cold weather riding. I bought the AYR8 a few weeks ago and its Much cooler to ride in. They are pretty much the same shape, sizing and profile. I bought the AYR8 in navy and love it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great! Overall, I really love this helmet! I show in the 3'6 hunters, and it looks great; low-profile, classy, and sleek! I've been using it for over 3 years, and it looks brand new! The only problem that I have with it is that there is no ventilation! On hot, sunny summer days, I overheat really fast with this helmet and get bad headaches. If you live in a cooler area, or ride indoors during the summer, it shouldn't be a problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful fit and quality Solid, rich looking helmet. Great fit. Was told it will last.
    Date published: 2016-07-12
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks great! I love this helmet. It looks amazing in the show ring, however my head gets extremely hot in it. I've had it for over 4 years, worn almost every day and it doesn't look a day old. The quality is excellent.
    Date published: 2016-04-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great For the Hunter Ring! I recently purchased this helmet, and I do not regret it one bit. They look great in the Hunter ring, and look great overall. They are a bit pricey, but they look fabulous and safety is the key. If you do show, make sure that there is enough room for you to put your hair up in the helmet, but not too loose so that it is only snug with your hair up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase! My daughter's favorite helmet. This is her second one of this particular style. She loves Charles Owen helmets and I love the price and service offered by Smartpak!
    Date published: 2015-12-12
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safest and best looking The brand was recommended as very safe, and, to my pleasure, is quite good looking. Furthermore, it fits better than any helmet I've ever had. I even thought my head feels better with the helmet on than off. It has increased my confidence in the saddle, and, while I know there are no guarantees in this life, knowing I'm wearing the best goes a long way. The staff was very helpful in making my selection.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect traditional helmet My daughter always wore this helmet through her equitation and hunter years. I had an original GPA that just didn't quite fit my oval shaped head. This Charles Owen style fits perfectly and is so comfortable.
