Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets
Purchase: I received this helmet about 2 years ago for my birthday. I got it at my local tack shop for around $150. I wanted a nice helmet to use for schooling and show. I now school in it and keep it as my back up show helmet ( i received another helmet for another birthday that is my main show helmet).
Likes: It is extremely comfortable and the fit is really good, there are no pressure points. It is very durable and you can clean it easily. When you wear it for schooling it presents a more formal polished picture then wearing a plastic schooling helmet ( that is what I think anyway). You can get the GPA look but without the price tag. It will work for hunter/jumper or dressage shows and schooling. I got the black/black so I could show anything in it. If you wear it to show in it creates a very nice polished look.
Dislikes: nothing really expect for every little bit of dust is drawn to it but if you carefully use a dry totally clean shoe polish brush then you can get all of that off
Quality: very high quality for the price. it has held up really well.
Summary: If you want a GPA but you can't afford it then get an IRH. You can show and school in it. For schooling it is a very good helmet and it creates a nice picture. For show it helps pull your whole look together. It also will protect your head since it is ASTM/SEI certified.
Usefulness Rating: 2.75 out of 5.
