Parents often ask us, "what helmet should I buy..." The first helmet we purchased was directed by Emily's first routine instructor. She insisted on a specific helmet so we had no choice. When we progressed to a new instructor, she said "pick whatever..." Well I ended up with this larger helmet that made my daughter look like a bit like a mushroom! We eventually moved on to a slim design that was no less safe, but was more stylish. Today, her helmet is suitable for eventing competition, but you don't need to start there! If you want a reasonably priced, stylish helmet for use in our lesson program, my recommendations are below. If you haven't already, you can click on our Helmets tab for more information.
