Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: I acquired this item at a local tack store for $159.99. I decided I would get it because a lot of people at the barn love this helmet and I know it's very safe and attractive. It is very similar to the GPA helmet, but for a fraction of the cost. I thought this would be a wise choice as a show helmet.

Likes: The look and protection is fantastic. I think it's one of the best looking helmets you can buy. It is very comfortable and it keeps your head cool on hot days. I have only fallen in it once (read about what I don't like), and the protection was great. You can get a replacement helmet from International if it's within three years of purchase for $65 if the helmet has been damaged.

Dislikes: When I fell off, I was able to press the black stripe in. Although it gave me excellent protection in the fall and I didn't have any pain in my head at all (I fell on a jump pole), I was surprised to see the external damage to the helmet.

Quality: Great quality and construction except for the damage I noted above when I fell off.

Summary: Excellent quality and a great helmet that is very comfortable. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a show helmet that is like the GPA, but can't afford the large price tag. The ATH's come in navy/silver, black/clear, black/black (which I have), black/silver, black/gunmetal, black velvet/black, black velvet/silver. The prices vary, with the cheapest ATH the navy/silver for $99 at Dover and a possibly different ATH from State Line Tack in black/black for $99.
