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 GR8 helmet by Charles Owen is at the cutting edge of equestrian fashion. This helmet is both sleek and sporty with its low profile design. Available in a variety of colors, the GR8 Helmet is covered with a microfibre suede material that has been treated to afford it protection against marking and scuffing so your helmet continues to look great for years to come.

Favorite Features

  • Low profile design and gently rounded brim for a flattering look
  • Press stamped metallic logo is positioned centrally above the peak with another discreet logo on the back of the helmet where a ribbon would traditionally be
  • Harness is reinforced with nylon for additional strength, safety and security
  • Silver ions are interwoven throughout the lining in the headband to provide anti-microbial protection against sweat and odors
  • Kitemarked to PAS015 and BSEN 1384. Certified by SEI to ASTM F1163-15.

Sizing It Up

Charles Owen helmets are sized using metric measurements (Centimeters). We advise using Centimeters when determining size.

Charles Owen GR8 Helmet is rated 4.7023809523809526 out of 5 by 84.
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.

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.

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!
