English Chaps/Boots/Helmets



Manufacturer: Lexington
Model: LL-1/ LidLocker
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: That awful thing that horse owners endure, my gelding of almost 20 years had to be put down. After three years grieving him, my family was relieved that another horse sparked some interest. Meanwhile, middle age had arrived, so they sent me off to Tractor Supply for the protection needed riding a young unbroke horse. Lexington LidLocker was the fit and rating that was the best. The velcro is great for adjustments needed for winter riding and even for hair loss from chemotherapy. The cost of the helmet was comparable to other brands at the time, the deciding factor was the fit.

Likes: The great thing about the helmet is the fit. It can be adjusted for winter riding making it comfortable to have your ears covered, and even wear a fleece hat when it's colder. When the weather is hot, or hair is short, the velcro adjusts to make a snug fit. It stays put in any gait. If it would be too loose or tight, there isn't a problem to size while riding. Although I suggest getting a young horse accustomed to the sound of velcro before mounting.

Dislikes: Perhaps it's the age of the helmet since it was purchased around 2000, the plastic covering has become brittle and started to break in places, exposing the inner material. It isn't as streamlined in appearance as some other models, but will forgo fashion for function.

Quality: The construction is strong, solid and long lasting. There is no visible damage, except to the exterior covering after todays impact. I really like the quality of the helmet, that's why my husband looked for a Lexington replacement. When you find something good, you stay with it.

Summary: Today, the day after Christmas, a perfect day for a ride. Five lady friends hit the trail, one of us, me, literally did hit the trail. As my feet were vertically above my head, my friend who happens to be a registered nurse said she just closed her eyes. When she opened them again she saw me reaching for the reins of my mare who calmly was standing behind me, wondering why I was dismounted. What my friend missed was a hard blow to the side of my trusty LidLockeer as I tucked and rolled, pressing grass, pine needles and mud into the holes and velcro of my helmet. Except for a scrape on the side of my face, there was fortunately no damage. Everyone had a relieved laugh at the mossy look I was now sporting. That's how my husband, looking to replace my helmet found this site and urged me to "tell them how you ride". Thanks Hon.
