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 JR8 Junior Helmet is rated 4.763888888888889 out of 5 by 144.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this helmet! I just ordered this helmet for the second time. I love CO helmets (I have a skull cap for cross country and an AYR8 that I finally splurged on for dressage and show jumping!). I use the JR8 as my every day schooling helmet, though it does look nice enough that I've used it several times at schooling and recognized shows. I noticed the other day that the foam lining was starting to break down, so I checked the label and realized that I have been using it since October 2010! I took reasonably good care of it, stored it in a helmet bag and almost always kept it inside, but I really cleaned it pretty minimally and used it almost every day. The outside surface of the helmet still looks new, and I think that the main reason for the deterioration of the lining is because I ride in it every day during Texas summers! I can't wait to get my new one and definitely recommend this helmet for every day use or for shows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Comfortable! I have had this helmet for around three years and I absolutely love it! It was my first expensive and nice helmet and it is super comfortable. The only thing is it has gotten dirty, which is expected and I'm finding it hard to clean so I think the cleaner is a good thing to purchase at the same time as the helmet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charles Owens at a more reasonable price I bought this helmet as my first more expensive helmet because I wanted something a little more formal for the show ring. After riding in Troxels and cheaper Ovations, it was really a nice step up. The helmet is very stylish and even though it says it's a "junior" helmet, it looks fine on me even though I'm an adult with a larger head. Although I bought it just for shows, now it's my primary riding helmet, since it's too nice to just save for special occasions. The chin strap is not my favorite, but it's something I was willing to compromise on for the bargain price. I've recently just purchased an AYR8 helmet as well though, since this one doesn't have much ventilation which may pose a problem as it gets warmer for the summer. I still plan on keeping this one as a back-up, since I ride at a couple different barns and it's nice to have an extra.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good helmet for the price This helmet fits well and is very comfortable. I like that it covers the whole head, including fully covering the back of the head. It looks very nice and can be worn for schooling and shows. The only part I wish was different is the chin strap. It fits well, but is not as nice as the other chin straps that fully wrap around the ears to the chin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely helmet, reasonable price I bought this as an upgrade from my Troxel. I wanted something a little nicer for showing, but I can't fathom buying a $500 helmet that will only last a maximum of 5 years if I don't have a fall. They have the replacement if you fall, for a discounted price, which made me a little more comfortable buying it. While it says junior, it's not limited in sizing (I'm 34 and have a big head: size 7 1/4). It looks nice, especially for showing. I'd recommend finding it in a store first to try on, since it doesn't really adjust much, but it's much cheaper here.
