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

Stay cool, dry and comfortable with the Samshield Premium Helmet. Designed in conjunction with actual riders just like you, it has all the features you want in a helmet with a stylish, modern look. Instead of unsightly exterior vents, the Premium uses air canals under the visor for incredible airflow. While the padding is fitted and comfortable, it doesn't make contact with the front of your forehead - no more helmet-induced headaches, dented foreheads or skin problems from sweaty padding! Over time, the memory foam inserts will not break down, so the helmet will fit as perfectly as when you bought it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from as comfortable as it is stylish I really like the traditional look in helmets, and this is it! this helmet fits my head perfectly. I tried two sizes and ended up going with the smaller....no head pain, solid fit, great styling and good airflow. LOVE IT!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not too thrilled with accident discount.. So, I adore this helmet. It is well-made, stylish, fits well, and is durable and really doesn't get dirty. However, I recently had a bad riding accident where I sustained a severe concussion. Had I not been wearing my Samshield, it would've been much worse. I had heard that some helmet companies will provide a discount on a new helmet for accident-related purposes. I emailed SmartPak, and they got back to me promptly letting me know they would reach out to the manufacturer. I received word back on what Samshield would give me as a discount on a new helmet - and it was NOTHING compared to what other companies would give for accident related incidents. Don't get me wrong - any discount is awesome! But - for a company with such a reputation and backing, I would expect a bit more. Otherwise, I adore this helmet and would highly recommend it. It's the reason I am alive and functioning today!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Washable liner! I bought this product a little over a month ago as my Charles Owen GR8 was a couple of years old and a little smelly (blame the sweaty head!). The biggest draw to the Samshield was the washable and replaceable liner - so far so good! The fit is also adjustable as the helmet comes in three base sizes and then you purchase different liners to fit your head (two versions; one with padding all the way around and one without padding at the forehead). I am still deciding whether to order a size smaller...waiting to see if the liners compress much.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS HELMET! I bought this helmet a week ago, and I'm already in love with it! It is appropriate for every show ring, and is a wonderful schooling helmet as well! For sizing, I got one size smaller than what I normally am! BEWARE: This premium helmet fits differently than the matte one because the padding inside is different. I was 6 7/8 for the matte and I went a size down for this one. I love the classy but modern look this helmet has. <3 it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the look! Finally got the helmet we were lusting after! Our trainer is sponsored by Samshield and we love all her fancy helmets BUT, most important are the safety factors and the cooling vents...awesome!
