Trade your cowboy hat for a helmet
Troxel Equestrian Helmets
My first riding helmet was one of those English riding helmets, covered in black velvet. Riding helmets have come a long way since my youth. Troxel makes helmets for English and Western riders that are lightweight and low profile. From schooling helmets, to show helmets, there is an equestrian helmet for every type of rider.
Troxel Legacy Gold Helmet
I own the Troxel Legacy Gold all purpose helmet. With hunt cap styling, this riding helmet is marketed to English riders looking for durable and sleek headgear protection. As a California-based equestrian, I like this riding helmet for the ventilation – seven mesh covered vents. The latest Troxel helmets also come with a removable, washable headliner.
Riding helmet fit
The key to a good helmet is proper fit. With Troxel’s CinchFit Pro, the helmet naturally adjusts to the shape and size of the riders head. Remember, if you have been in a riding accident, make sure to re-evaluate your helmet. When in doubt, purchase a new helmet. I’m not saying this as a shill for Troxel Helmets; I am speaking as an equestrian and mother. Suggested retail value of Troxel Legacy Gold Helmet, $79.95. Check website for pricing.
