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

Samshield is a mix between the rider's needs, the designer's creative energy and the engineer's technical vision. This helmet is made from anti-scratch Polycarbonate outer shell to keep it show ring ready at all times. The front air inlet allows for maximum ventilation. The inside of the helmet contains "Shape Memory" comfort foam, that will mold to your head and never lose its shape.

      Samshield Shadow Matt Helmet is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 92.
      Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING HELMET! I bought this helmet about 2 months ago wondering what the hype was about. I wore it to ride and the instant I put it on I was in love! It is extremely comfortable and the padding is amazing! Even though it is a little pricy, it is worth it and it is good quality.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! I got this helmet last month and it is great! I have a really big head and thick hair so it's hard to find a helmet that fits me. The padding is amazing. I never get any headaches at all! This helmet is true to size. ordered a 7 1/2 based on the size chart and my thick hair also fits. Definitely won't be getting a new helmet anytime soon.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from A helmet I trust! I have had a wide variety of helmets in the past, everything from Troxel, IRH, Ovation, and Charles Owen. IMO by far the best helmet I have ever worn is my Samshield. It fits my round head very nicely and is easy to achieve a custom fit through their exchangeable liner system. The excellent fit and quality construction has saved my head from a fall in one instance and their replacement program is excellent. As someone who has experienced a concussion from a fall in a helmet of questionable quality, I will always invest in a quality helmet and Samshield certainly fits the bill.
