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

With the thinning of the ozone layer, every rider needs to be more aware of protecting their skin from the sun! The Charles Owen SP8 Helmet provides that better sun protection with a specially designed visor to shade the whole face and upper neck. To maintain the Charles Owen flattering look, the brim is deeper and wider to provide additional coverage while still remaining stylish.

    Charles Owen SP8 Helmet is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVEE I LOVE this helmet!! I get so many compliments on it! In fact my friend liked it so much she got the same one. Blocks the sun and the classic CO look is kept even with the wider brim. I like it a lot better than the GPAs which are less conservative.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The "First Lady" for Charles Owen Lovers Being a Floridian, I need protection from the sun, and I hate to ride in sunglasses. I have been wearing the "Equivisor" for years, but it sometimes would fly off on a windy day or while jumping. I coveted the wide brim on the GPA "First Lady," but I do not like the large bug eye vents, and I do not have the right head shape for GPAs. Being, a Charles Owen lover, I was elated to find this helmet. Classic look, wide brim, and ventilation, it checked all my boxes. I am not disappointed! I love my gorgeous new helmet, and I get compliments on it all the time. This is THE helmet to have in Florida!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of compliments I ride in Florida and was looking into getting a "velcro-on" brim for eye shading and face shielding. Instead, I tried this helmet and am glad I did! Noticeable difference in the shading of my eyes, and tons of positive comments from other competitors at a recent show regarding the attractive profile. I can't tell you how many times I repeated the brand and where to get it! It does feel snug even though exact same size as my older CO, but hoping it will break in shortly.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not enough ventilation Because I live in central Texas, I bought this helmet for its extended visor. Unfortunately, it had very few air vents, so it would be much too hot. So, I guess it works if you have sun but cool temps. Disappointed & sent it back.
    Date published: 2014-08-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! Love the larger brim to protect my face from the sun. A little snug at first so my head would hurt after a bit, but it is much better now.
