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.
We're sorry, but certain colors/sizes are sold out and are no longer available.

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.

    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!

    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really is lower profile I am a CO fan because I have a majorly oval head, I'm afraid to try anything else as I was sorry the few times I strayed. For background, I tried the J3 and 4Star helmets (looked WAY too big) before deciding to go with the Pro II for my XC hat. For dressage and stadium, I tried the SP8 first (also looked WAY to big), then finally ended up with the GR8 and I wish I'd just gone with it first. I have a smaller oval head, with a long narrow face. This helmet is the most flattering I've found so far. Also strange and worth mentioning - for the longest time I was always a 7 7/8, now I wear a 7 3/4. Not sure if the sizing changed slightly, or my head is shrinking in old age:/.
