English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Manufacturer: Troxel
Model: Dakota
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: I bought this helmet almost 4 years ago from my local tack shop, just after my first riding lesson. I think it was around $70.00. I didn't know a whole lot about brands of horse gear, but had heard and seen a lot of Troxels. They are reasonably priced and have many styles to choose from.

Likes: I really like the design of it and it fits really comfortably. When I'm riding, I usually don't even know its there its very comfortable to wear.

Dislikes: About six months ago, the snap on it (one of the prongs) was about to break off. It still fit but i didn't know if it was still safe and would hold up. (It did.. it had lasted through a few falls like that) When i went to the tack shop to see if they had a replacement, they must have changed the clip because theirs didn't fit my helmet (it is 4 years old) but i did find my dogs collar clip fit in it perfectly he he) The leather piece going around the front of the helmet, has snapped of on one side about 3 times.. it just snaps right back on though. I also don't like covers do not fit over it (they slip off) but it was not meant for a cover. It is also kind of bulky, so I wouldn't wear it to a show, even with a cover (since they don't stay on well) but since I don't show that is not a problem.

Quality: I think it is excellent quality. I have not noticed anything wrong with it and I've been really happy with it since i started riding. Like I said earlier, this helmet fits me perfectly. When I got it, I only tried on one or two helmets, and I just really liked this one because it fit great.

Summary: When I get my next helmet, I will definitely be getting a troxel because they are very durable and fit and look great!
