We're bringing you this product at the lowest price allowed by the manufacturer. That means this item isn't eligible for additional 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 Wellington Professional is the latest helmet in their extensive range, which continually evolves to provide riders with an ever increasing choice of headgear.

  • The low profile GR8 style silhouette is covered with a microfiber suede material.
  • The peak of the helmet has been re-styled to be broader and squarer in a shape, which flatters the face and shades the eyes slightly more.
  • The uniquely soft snug fitting microfiber suede lined harness extends to the nape of the neck.
  • An integral adjustable drawstring enables adjustment and fit of the harness at the base of the skull.

A super soft headband ensures comfort in all conditions. The lining also features interwoven silver ions, providing anti-microbial protection against sweat and odors.  A centrally fixed metallic badge features the Charles Owen logo, which is repeated in an embroidered form on the back of the helmet.

Regarding safety, the Charles Owen Wellington Professional is certified by SEI to ASTM F1163.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Charles Owen Quality product I bought this helmet a few weeks ago because the lining in my old GR8 (almost 10 years old!!) had compressed so much it was sliding all over my head. I took the time to watch the Charles Owen video on fitting and sizing helmets, which was extremely helpful. I chose this style helmet because of the extra padding at the nape of the neck, the invisible air vents, and for its classic styling. This helmet fits and looks great -- I'm much more confident in the saddle now that I have a helmet that fits properly!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what i wanted The helmet is great--I am a traditionalist and wanted something velvet looking that was ALL Black--the straps included. This is getting harder and harder to do nowadays and this helmet stays true to it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Helmet I've ever had I LOVE this helmet!!!!! When I needed a new helmet I asked my friend at my barn what kind of riding helmet she had and she told me about Charles Owen. She had a simular helmet to this one but after I got mine she loved it so much she bought if for herself. The extra padding around the neck makes it more comfortable and makes it easier to put your hair up. After I got it I showed it to everyone at my barn and now every show rider has this one. I love the padding which keep your head warm in the winter, it doesn't keep you cool in the summer, but it doesn't overheat you more than the average helmet. This helmet FORMS to your head. When you order your size, make sure you follow the guide, when you first get your helmet it might feel tight (especially if you put your hair up in it), because it stretches out and forms to your head shape. I ordered one last year and just ordered another for when I need it next. Charles Owen is the BEST brand for helmets hands down! I feel much safer when I ride in their helmets and now I don't buy any other brand. The price is worth it 5 times over. Charles Owen does tests on helmets in more places than any other brand I've seen. Also this helmet is cheeper on smartpack than the other tack place that I've found it on (and Im very thorough with my research).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spend the money I had lusted after this helmet for several months, and when it went on sale, I snatched it up. I've had it for 18 months now and can confidently say it's the best helmet I've ever had in 35 years of riding. I have a long oval head and the Hampton had fit me the best of my previous helmets, but the Welly Pro takes it to a new level. It was initially a tiny bit snug, but I chose to keep it, and it loosened ever so slightly to the perfect fit in a week or two. It's also the most flattering helmet I've ever worn--I have a long, narrow face and most helmets look ridiculous on me. The lower profile of the Welly Pro saves me from looking like I'm under attack by a giant mushroom.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Helmet I bought this helmet to replace my old show helmet. While it looks very nice, it doesn't fit my head as well as the JR8 does. The Wellington tends to sits a bit higher on my head with slight pressure on my forehead compared to the JR8. If the helmet fits your head, I'd say go for it! It looks very classy in the show ring.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaced the Best With the Best My daughter damaged her last Charles Owen helmet in a nasty fall last August. Her helmet probably saved her life! She escaped with a bad concussion and a deeply bruised shoulder.The new helmet was an early birthday present. It arrived 4 days after I ordered it, which surprised both of us. We know SmartPak is quick, but this was quick, even for SmartPak!The price was right (on sale), and I'm glad my daughter is once again wearing the safest, best-fitting helmet we have found every time she rides.Thank you, SmartPak, for helping me keep my daughter safe.(Please note that the comments below are about my daughter, not me. She competed in the ICHSA as an undergraduate. Prior to college, she rode and taught riding for several years. I haven't ridden in several years, although I used to ride and teach.)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this helmet!! I didn't know what the truly correct helmet fit felt like until I put the Charles Owen Wellington Pro Helmet on. Don't get me wrong, I always wore helmets that met the requirements of a properly fitted helmet. But with my long oval head, they didn't give me the same all around feel of my head being securely 'hugged' by the helmet that the CO did. I finally felt that my head was truly, properly protected all the way around.And that was proven last August when my young TB dumped me off right onto my head. I suffered a Grade II concussion but no permanent brain damage thanks to a helmet that actually fit! Cannot wait for my tax return to come in so I can afford to buy another CO! (Don't worry, I'm wearing a Troxel now, but it's just not the same as a CO)

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
