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 ASTM-SEI certified New Sportage 8500 from Tipperary includes all of the features that the original Tipperary helmet is most famous for. Listening to riders' feedback they have integrated the original style, fit and ventilation that made it the most comfortable and one of the lightest helmets on the market.

Favorite Features

  • Lightweight, high density ABS material provides superior resistance to high impact
  • Functional low profile
  • Drop back shell for increased protection and a secure fit reducing helmet rotation 
  • Reflective band for safer rides in low light conditions
  • Ventilation system provides increased airflow for a cooler, more comfortable ride
  • Soft touch leather with reinforced nylon harness
  • Soft, rubberized, low profile flexible visor

ASTM-SEI certified.

    Tipperary Sportage Helmet is rated 4.7772 out of 5 by 368.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Seemed okay, just didn't fit Seems to be well constructed, light, etc, but fits more of a rounded head. Tight enough front to back, but really loose on sides; like I said, more of a rounded shape than my head is. Easily returned and exchanged.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stays in place during barrel race. This is my second Tipperary Sportage helmet and I love it! It stays in place during my runs and is so comfortable I forget I have it on. It is also much cooler than a cowboy hat in the summer and warmer in the winter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Protection! This helmet offers great protection for the head and neck. We use it as my daughter's schooling helmet, and it has worked out great. Very comfortable and priced right. We are now on our second Tipperary helmet!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Durable and Ventilated I decided I needed my own helmet, and I was looking at another brand until I saw how much more protection you get for your money with this helmet. I measured my head with their instructions, expecting the helmet to be low profile... It is not really, although it does fit. (Maybe I have a strange shaped head?) Like the reviews stated it has awesome ventilation! I used a few of the extra pads and it fits perfect. One surprise is that it came with a Tipperary Sportage helmet bag, which is very neat! Overall a very nice and well made helmet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite helmet!! I first bought this helmet three years ago and I absolutely love it!!! It has lasted beautifully and been through so much weather. I have also done quite a few hunter jumper schooling shows and it was great. I have also had quite a few falls and this hasn't cracked at all and it kept me safe. Just ordered a new one since show season is coming up and my other one was beginning to fall apart. I would recommend this helmet to anyone!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 2nd Tipperary Sportage LOVE this helmet - this is a replacement for the one I have had for 4 years, as I like to replace mine a little sooner than suggested due to the TX heat [when it might be sitting in my car for a while, etc]. And I wear it every time I ride, which is 3-4x/week on average. Speaking of the TX heat this helmet has great airflow and is fantastically comfortable. Sizing runs true so measure your head and figure out what size you need. It comes with small and large pads to customize the sizing. This fits my head much better than the Troxel helmets I have had in the past - nothing bad about Troxel, this just has a better shape for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite helmet! This is my...3rd Sportage! I love this helmet - it's comfortable, feels sturdy without being heavy, and looks decent when on. Love the vents too.

    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...
