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

The Ovation Competitor Helmet is made with flocked velveteen and has a rounded removable breakaway visor and coolmax lining. Easily adjustable dial ensures a snug fit while high flow vents keep you cool. YKK adjuster clip and buckle are positioned slightly off of the riders face for comfort.

Black.

    Ovation Competitor Helmet is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 48.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from light and looks good Got this as an inexpensive first show helmet. Got a M-L and it barely fits. Was hoping for a bit more wiggle room since it is adjustable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the Price I bought this helmet a couple months ago and it has served me well as a schooling helmet. However, you get what you pay for, the velvet on the thin plastic visor is already peeling away and the visor is not removable in order to replace it. It does exactly what I need it to but isn't as nice as the picture would have you believe.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good price and looks good too I bought this as my first show helmet. I haven't shown yet, but it looks good out of the box and fits well.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from S/M was tiny and M/L was huge I was right at the end of the S/M spectrum but I ordered that size anyways. Big mistake, couldn't even get it on my head. I sent it back and waited 3 weeks for them to receive it and send out a new one. The M/L was too big and stuck out 3 inches from my head on all sides, I looked like a bobble head. Extremely disappointed with this helmet.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from already getting compliments! Its very light weight, low profile, and visibly attractive which is what I love! the velvety outside is nice because I can use it for shows without having two helmets! Price is very reasonable for this helmet, my coworker was even surprised when I mentioned the price for the helmet and is planning to get her own now! only downside is the sizing, I'm usually a medium and the other ovations I tried on I fit a S/M, the liner does not fit my head at all and is very tight, but when I take it out the helmet it has enough wiggle room and with the adjustable knob its a perfect fit. I may purchase another larger liner, or just make my own but I still love the helmet. I'm a size 7-1/8 to 7-1/4 for reference to others with the same problem.
