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)!

And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Stylish, lightweight low-profile helmet from Ovation!

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.

    Ovation Competitor Helmet is rated 4.5111 out of 5 by 45.
    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Light! This is a very light helmet. I haven't bought a helmet since before they started putting vents in ones that were less than $400, so I was quite shocked at how different the manufacturing is now! Rode in it for the first time yesterday and it was very comfortable, light, and airy, and felt secure. No falling into my eye line, and I like that I can wear a ponytail with it or not, and adjust it with the dial accordingly. It looks nice enough to show in, which I enjoy because I don't want to have to purchase a separate helmet for that.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from NOT FOR EVERYONE I ordered the Sm/M size in this helmet because my previous Ovation helmet which I loved was a M. When the helmet arrived and I tried it on, it was too tight. I exchanged it for the M/L and that one was so much larger it obstructed my vision. I ended up returning it and bought the Uvex lightweight helmet instead.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from cheaply made helmet "You get what you pay for" holds true for this helmet. I bought this helmet because of the excellent reviews it received and its reasonable price. But was quickly disappointed after opening the box. The helmet has an overall cheap feel and look to it. The "velveteen" cover was thin and bumpy to the touch. The dial to adjust the fit is nice for a growing child.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for This is a great, quality, comfortable helmet at an incredible price point! Just what I was looking for!

    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...
