How to Check Helmet Fit
Follow these steps when you're deciding whether a helmet size and style is right for you.

Check the overall fit. A correctly sized helmet sits down snugly on your head and covers your entire skull with equal pressure all around. No gap exists between your helmet and your head; even pressure with the lining allows the helmet to absorb force in the event of an accident.

If you feel the helmet wants to rise or pop upward from your head, then it is too small. If the helmet is loose around your head and sitting low on the eyebrows, it is too large.

Try to wiggle the helmet up and down. The skin on your forehead and your eyebrows should move with the helmet. If the helmet slides freely and your skin doesn't move, then it is too large for your head. Shake your head from side to side and up and down. The helmet should not pivot on your head. If it does, then the helmet is too large.

While a slightly large helmet may feel very comfortable initially, if you select one that does not fit snugly when it is new, it will become too large over time as the lining breaks in. A large helmet will shift during riding, could become a distraction and will not protect you well during a fall.

If you are trying on an adjustable helmet and the fit is very close to being correct, you may tighten it through the use of slides, dials, changeable padding or ties, and repeat these tests. Otherwise, try another size, style or brand of helmet.

Check the brim. The front brim should not sit more than two fingers' width above your eyebrows. It should not sit any lower than 1/2" above your eyebrows or it could block your vision. If the brim does not sit correctly, try a different helmet that is either deeper or shallower.

Adjust the chin strap. When you're sure the helmet stays in place without the harness, adjust the chin strap so that it fits snugly under your chin. It should be able to hold the helmet in place, but not be so tight as to cause discomfort against your throat or make you feel as though you can't swallow or might choke. Some helmets have sliding clips that allow you to adjust the harness for comfort around the ears.

When you find your perfect helmet, you'll discover an added benefit- it will flatter the shape of your face.

Tip: Got long hair?
If you plan on wearing long or thick hair under your helmet, the length of your hair or the way you tie it up may change the way your helmet sits on your head. You want to be sure that your hair lies as flat to your head as possible under your helmet. To achieve both a snug helmet fit and a neat appearance, consider using two hair nets and the step-by-step method shown here:
  • Hair and hair net are gathered into a ponytail holder. Note the traditional styling of the hair covering the top half of the ear.
  • Position ponytail like this, laying it as flat as possible against the head, and place a second hair net over the hair and pony tail.
  • Tilt your head forward to slide on the helmet, putting it on from the back first, with the harness settling over the ponytail holder, and working toward the front.
  • Tuck in your hair and hair net over your forehead neatly so that neither shows under the brim.
Note: If you change the length of your hair, it may affect the way your helmet fits.

**Helmet Notice, Disclaimer & Warning

All equestrian sports are inherently dangerous and involve the risk of serious injury or death. Riders using these products ride at their own risk with full knowledge of the hazards and risks associated with their activities. Helmets are designed for equestrian use only. Helmets cannot offer complete protection from injury or death to riders in case of fall, collision, impact, loss of control or otherwise. Helmets cannot protect areas of the head that are not covered. Helmets offer no protection against injuries involving forces other than impact.

CAUTION: Helmets must fit well and all retention straps must be securely fastened. Helmets are constructed so that the energy of an impact may be absorbed through partial destruction of the helmet. Helmets that suffer an impact should be destroyed and replaced. The protective qualities of helmets may be compromised by prior impact, age, use and many common substances. Always follow the manufacturer’s recommendations before applying cleaning agents, paints, or adhesives.

Dover Saddlery disclaims any responsibility for injuries or death incurred while wearing any of the helmets offered for sale. Representations regarding testing results, equipment ratings, product specifications, ASTM and/or SEI standards, and the adequacy of all such standards and designations are made solely by the product’s manufacturer. Dover Saddlery does not warrant or confirm the representations of the manufacturers. Dover Saddlery makes no representations expressed or implied regarding the fitness of these products for any particular purpose nor the extent to which the products protect riders from injury or death. By purchasing any of the helmets offered for sale and using it in an equestrian sport, the purchaser AGREES FREELY AND VOLUNTARILY TO ASSUME ALL RISKS RELATED TO EQUESTRIAN SPORTS, including the risk of personal injury, damage, death or property damage.

How to Store and Clean Your Riding Helmet

Place your helmet between uses in a helmet bag, hat bag or hat box that will shield it from dust, scuffs and accidental impacts. Most of these storage options allow breathability. If your helmet is damp inside from perspiration or outside from rain, allow it to dry naturally, away from artificial heat sources, before placing it in its storage container.

Keep your helmet in a temperature-controlled environment, such as inside your home or inside a heated/air-conditioned tack room. Never leave your helmet in your car. Extreme heat and extreme cold compromise the integrity of the shock-absorbing materials necessary to protect your head. Some barn locations are not optimal places to store your helmet because fluctuating temperatures can degrade the materials meant to protect your head on impact.

Regular weekly cleaning reduces accumulated perspiration and grease buildup from your hair, both of which create unpleasant odors inside your helmet. Clean your helmet only with a product formulated specifically for the purpose, such as Charles Owen Hat Cleaner. Spray the interior of your helmet with the cleanser, let it sit for several minutes, and then wipe it clean with a damp cloth.

Never use household cleaners on your helmet and never run your helmet through a dishwasher. Harsh chemicals will destroy the effectiveness of the safety materials in the helmet.
MFR’S RECOMMENDED REPLACEMENT AGE, ASSUMING NO FALL OR CRASH
At least every 5 years from date of purchase. Those who ride often should replace their helmet more often.

CRASH HELMET POLICY BASICS
