XR9 new Helmet
English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: IRH
Model: XR9 new Helmet
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: Bought it at Summerwind tack ebay store for 155 $ US.

Likes: This is a great helmet! It is a copy of the GR8 from Charles Owen (at half of the price...)I'm a senior dressage pony rider and I'm very hard to fit in term or helmet (I have a tiny head size 6 1/2 with a very oval shape). So when I look for a helmet, I want: 1. Low profile, in order not to look huge on the pony. 2. A great design in order to fit my head properly and securely. The XR9 gives me hall that! It really elegant and looks sharp in the dressage ring. It doesnt give too much of a bubble head. It comes in different colors. I like the black/black for the dressage ring, but they made it in black/ charcoal, black/silver, black/baby blue and black/pink. It is surprisingly lightweight and cool.

Dislikes: Some people are concerned with the triangular IRH logo in front of the helmet. They thinks it's too big... I'm very conservative in term of show turnout and I'm not bothered with the logo. I think it looks nice.

Quality: Great quality and construction! The material on the helmet is easy to clean! Just brush it off! I like the harness which is not too bulky! It close like the Charles Owen helmets, with a snap.

Summary: Love the XR9 model! Its appropriated for many activities such as show and schooling, as well as many disciplines! Great for pony riders looking for a low profile helmet in order to flatter their overall appearance! Everybody should have one!
