Charles Owen
English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Charles Owen
Model: JR8
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: I bought this helmet from Gallops Saddlery for $149.95 and I am so, so glad I did! I saved my allowance for weeks after doing research, and reading reviews to buy it as soon as I could.

Likes: What I love about this helmet is that is is covered in an anti-scuffing, easy to clean elegant material. I also like the slightly rounded visor because it is flattering to the face and is an attractive helmet by itself. I've always been picky about riding helmets, but not this one. And, it doesn't make you look like a bobble head! This helmet is specifically designed for young riders, but since it is made in sizes 6 1/2 all the way to 7 1/2, adults could definitely purchase it as well. The similar model that Charles Owen makes to this helmet, the GR8, is just as quality, if not the same, as this helmet, only it's about $200 more than the JR8. I honestly don't see a difference, and I tried on both! The helmet is also lined with a silver material, that is stitched in to keep better hygiene inside the helmet. The helmet is also very well ventilated, so your head doesn't even get hot. I ride in the summer time a lot, especially in outdoor arenas, and although I still sweat a little, my head never feels hot.

Dislikes: What's not to like? This is not applicable.

Quality: Very high quality, and it's triple certified, making it an even safer piece of technology. I simply couldn't ask for any better quality of a helmet, truly. And when I got my helmet, the company even holds a guarantee, where if you crash or damage your helmet within the first year of owning it, they will replace it for you. How cool is that?

Summary: If you are an avid Hunter/Jumper, you might already have this helmet, because it's very popular in the hunter/jumper circuit. I compete in dressage, hunter/jumpers, 4H and sometimes western, and this helmet suits all of my needs for it all. I couldn't ask for more!
