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'!).

Low profile geometry, fashion forward grain leather exterior and extreme ventilation make the new IRH Elite Ultra Helmet one of the most comfortable and fashionable helmets on the market. The center front vents together with the right, left and 2 rear vent ports ensure maximum air intake and the optimal air flow needed for cooling. The COOLON Lining is a soft, fast drying lining pulls moisture away from your head to keep you cool while riding. Removable for washing. **Please order a size up to accommodate the extra lining** Full wrap around, soft, leather harness is ventilated at the rear for maximum comfort. The IRH Elite Ultra Helmet is ASTM F-1163-15/SEI Certified.

    IRH Elite Ultra Helmet is rated 4.5789 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My IRH Elite Ultra black leather It fits perfectly. I used to have the old version. This helmet it gorgeous, my style exactly. It's breathable and the fleece cover protects it well. I think the quality and value is great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent helmet! I bought it and it looks super show quality, fit was perfect, but the leather strapping just didn't fit my ears right so I had to return, sadly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Attractive and Comfortable Decided to splurge and spend a little more since I wear a helmet often. Wanted something in leather, with a western appeal, and this helmet meets that criteria. Not too heavy - have worn it during this hot Indian Summer in California, and the ventilation was sufficient. Like the way it fits in the back - like a glove as opposed to other helmets that have a plastic piece that places stress on your hair. True to size - look forward to many years of wear.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Helmet I love how this helmet looks and it is also quite comfortable. I would recommend ordering true to size even though it was suggested to order up a size.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable schooling helmet I got this helmet to replace my Charles Owen AYR8, which I love, but which--after only 9 months--is now too big! I got this helmet one size smaller than my AYR8 in the long oval size and it fits really well. Just tight enough and very comfortable. I'm not even really aware of it when it's on. I've only been riding in it in the winter so far (it's 20 degrees today) so I haven't been able to take advantage of its cooling properties yet, but if it can help my head not sweat so much in the summer, I will be a happy girl! My only two quibbles are the price and the look. Having only had the Charles Owen helmets, I like that look better and probably would rather have this as my comfortable and cool schooling helmet and get something else for shows. It also seems expensive to me. I got a great deal, so was happy, but I wouldn't have paid full price.
