Top 5 Riding Hats

When you choose your riding hat.  The first thing you need to ask yourself is, what sort of riding do I need my riding hat for?

Jockey Skull Riding Hats

If you are planning on going cross country or general hacking around at home.  A Jockey Skull Riding Hat is the safest choice for you.  The rules for Cross Country are that you have to have a hat that meets the PAS015 and BSEN1384 standards and does not have a fixed peak.  The Charles Owen J3 Skull Hat is a popular choice for comfort, fit, protection and price.   If you are planning on riding cross country at a higher level.  Then the Gatehouse HS1 has a triple safety standard for extra protection.  This is the SNELL E2001.  This is the highest manufacturer equestrian hat safety standard in the world.  This includes a unique test that stimulates a rider falling into a rail or fence and having a secondary impact by a horses hoof.  We know that this is something as horse riders we all avoid.  However unfortunately accidents do happen and we need to prepare ourselves as safely as possible.

Riding Helmets

If you are competing in Dressage or Show Jumping, the helmet style is more predominantly used in these phases.  For example the Charles Owen Ayr 8 Leather Look looks super smart and is well ventilated, for a comfortable and safe fit.  You can even create your own bespoke Ayr 8 by choosing your very own colour combinations to match your team colours or the colours on your Jacket.
