Riding helmets can save lives!

It is not without reason that rider helmets are part of the basic equipment in equestrian sport as riding clothing. When riding, no matter how much experience you have on horseback, you must never neglect your safety. It doesn't matter how nice and reliable your horse is. Because accidents are usually one thing: unforeseen. A horse slips on wet ground, or simply stumbles, and your head is in danger. Falls are not only painful, but also dangerous. In the event of a head injury, there is a risk of permanent damage. To avoid this, there is the riding helmet. The riding cap is made of plastic in a similar way to the bicycle helmet, which makes it pleasantly light. The best-known manufacturers of riding helmets in Germany are probably Uvex, Samshield, Casco and Kep. But also brands like Pikeur, ELT, BR or Swing make riding helmets. No matter which manufacturer you prefer: the main thing is that you wear a helmet.

How are riding helmets constructed?

Rider helmets usually consist of a plastic outer shell and a styrofoam inner shell. Many high-quality riding helmets are also reinforced with a layer of carbon or polycarbonate to increase the protective effect. The inner shell made of styrofoam or EPS is protected by an inlay. This often removable padding absorbs sweat and protects the inner shell. If the inlay can be removed, it can easily be cleaned by hand or in the washing machine. Follow the washing instructions in the helmet.

An additional element of a riding helmet is the sun visor on the front, which, for example, can be found on a Samshield Miss Shield is particularly wide. This polo visor protects even more from the sun than the usual short visor. Especially when riding out, it can be advisable to protect your eyes from the sun. In addition, of course, the closure also belongs on the helmet. This can be adjusted in width and position on many helmets. Furthermore, many riding helmets have an adjustment wheel in the neck area, with which you can adjust the width of the helmet.

When building a riding helmet, one can distinguish between three different technologies. In the Inmould technology the inner layer is inseparably connected with the outer shell. This ensures a lightweight helmet construction with maximum impact strength. The Hard shell technology refers to the separate structure of the outer shell and inner shell. This construction enables a better installation of ventilation openings and air channels. The breathability is increased and thus ensures optimal wearing comfort. The third variant is that Hybrid technology. This combines the advantages of hard shell and inmould technology with a very low helmet weight. The protective effect is given in all variants. No matter which riding cap you choose, the riding helmet is indispensable in show jumping, eventing and dressage riding.

What designs are there for riding caps?

With riding helmets you have a very large selection. The classic helmet is covered with velvet and is reminiscent of the dressage caps of the past. Nowadays you will mainly find matte or glossy plastic surfaces. Whether velvety or matt - many riding helmets for women are provided with decorative elements. Swarowski stones, chrome elements or colorful piping adorn the modern riding helmet. Many riders even have a particularly nice helmet just for the tournament. This can be a little more unusual in dressage. Uvex specially developed the Suxxeed series. The perfect square look is achieved with the Suxxeed Glamor riding helmet. This dressage helmet is just as elegant in its effect as a top hat. With a darkening glitter insert, the Swarowski crystals and the combination with blue, black or brown imitation velor, this helmet is particularly elegant. If you like it a little more radiant, the riding helmets are Suxxeed Delight or Suxxeed Flash something for you. These luxury riding helmets are limited edition in black and navy available - perfect for a really grand entrance.

For jumping or versatility, you might want a somewhat sportier riding helmet. For example, the Uvex Perfexxion at. The ventilation has been technically renewed and the entire helmet is streamlined. If you still don't want to do without a bit of glitter on your head protection, you can go for Perfexxion Glamor. With this Uvex Perfexxion, tiny rhinestones are embedded in the honeycomb structure of the ventilation. And don't worry - the stones don't hinder breathability. Aesthetics are very important to many riders and especially female riders - but only head protection is really important.

What functions and properties does the riding helmet have?

The most important function of a riding helmet is obvious: it should protect your head from damage in the event of a fall or riding accident. In the event of an accident, the helmet serves as a buffer to absorb the impact energy. This can occur in the event of a fall or drop, eventual hoof kicks or drooping branches may be the case. You should never ride without a riding helmet, because even the best horse can slip or be frightened. The manufacturers we manage GPA, Casco, Uvex, Pikeur, BR, Samshield and all others meet the current safety standard VG1. The safety certificate is given inside the helmet with the CE mark and states that the helmet corresponds to the product-specific applicable European directives.
The headgear also serves as protection against rain and solar radiation, which can disturb you while riding. It can be very dangerous under certain circumstances if you overlook obstacles or other riders due to the sun's rays.
Riding helmets also have a ventilation function. The manufacturers are continuously developing ventilation systems so that you don't get too warm under the helmet. Specifically placed ventilation slots and channels ensure optimal air circulation in the helmet in summer. A high level of breathability prevents heat build-up.

When should the riding helmet be replaced? Can you still ride with a helmet after a riding accident or a fall?

If your helmet has hit hard ground, such as an accidental fall from the gang, you should replace it. Even small blows can lead to micro-cracks in the shell and thus impair the protective function. Many manufacturers also indicate a material durability of 5 to 7 years. Therefore, you should also replace your helmet after this period at the latest to ensure safety when riding. If you fell with your helmet, it is also advisable to replace the riding cap. Head protection can then no longer be 100% guaranteed.

Buying a used riding helmet?

Used riding helmets are not a particularly good idea. You never know for sure whether the protective effect is still there. Perhaps the helmet has already been involved in a riding accident or fall, which you cannot always tell from the rider's helmet. A fully functional helmet is indispensable in equestrian sports. In addition, the upholstery may already have suffered. In most cases the inlay can be replaced, but the foam can also have been damaged by dirt and sweat. It is therefore advisable to buy your own helmet for reasons of hygiene.

This is how you can find the right riding helmet

If you are looking for a riding helmet, make sure that your preferred model has a valid certification mark. The CE EN 1384-2000 test mark is required for riding helmets. In recent years, this guideline has been subject to repeated adjustments. The riding helmet must also fit perfectly and should guarantee solid ventilation. If you are buying a riding helmet for the first time, you should first measure your head circumference. Today almost all riding helmets are adjustable in size. This principle was adopted from the bicycle helmets and is easy to use. Just try the different riding helmets with us, because every brand has a different shape and looks a little different on every head. It is important that the riding helmet must not slip. Especially when jumping and eventing, the helmet must not slip on your eyes. But a wobbling helmet can also be a nuisance when riding and dressage and no longer shows its full protective effect.

This is how you measure the riding helmet and find the right size

How do I measure the riding helmet so that it fits correctly? How do I know what size I need for a riding helmet? We are often asked this question. Of course, it's best to try on a helmet straight away. Then you notice relatively quickly whether it fits, pushes somewhere or sits strangely. However, if you want to order your first riding helmet online and do not have the opportunity to come to us in Lippstadt, you can read off the right size from a size table.

Take a tape measure and measure the circumference of your head. To do this, place the measuring tape around your head at the widest point, e.g. just above your ears or at the level of the middle of your forehead. Then you can read off the circumference and compare it with the measurement table. If you're between two sizes, go for the larger size. Most rider helmets are adjustable, so you can put it a little tighter so it doesn't slip.

What do you have to consider when wearing a riding cap?

You should note the following when buying a riding helmet and then wearing it:

  1. Position the riding cap horizontally on your head. You should not pull the helmet too low over your forehead so as not to restrict your view. At the back of the head, the riding cap should completely enclose the occiput, the adjustment knob on many helmets is then exactly above the hollow above the atlas vertebra. Your ears should be centered in the triangle of the fastening straps. Many helmets allow you to adjust the position of the straps.
  2. High-quality products can be adjusted both in height and in width. So you can adapt the helmet to the shape of your head. The riding helmet should neither be too tight nor too loose. You should adjust the chin strap so that it fits, but does not cut in or press.
  3. Test the adjustment of your helmet by shaking your head. With a vigorous nod, you check whether it slips forward onto your eyebrows. If this is the case, or if the helmet wobbles with a slight shake of the head, it is not yet properly locked or is simply too big. Only a correctly adjusted riding helmet offers you optimal protection. If you are not sure of your helmet size, we will be happy to help you on site in our shop in Lippstadt.

Do you have to look after a riding helmet and how is a helmet properly stored?

If the helmet is dirty, you can wipe it with a damp cloth. For riding hats with velor or imitation velor, you can use a suede brush and carefully brush the helmet. In summer you benefit from a removable inlay. You can then wash it by hand or in the machine according to the washing instructions. Please do not put your riding cap in the dry cleaning, washing machine or even in the dishwasher. Regular maintenance increases the durability of your helmet.

You should never put the helb upside down on the floor. Because this leads to scratches on the plastic surface. Instead, lay it correctly on a soft surface. In addition, never expose it to direct sun, because intense heat can age the material quickly. To protect your riding helmet, you can keep it in a helmet bag. Many manufacturers offer a thin helmet bag as an extra when buying. A real helmet bag offers better protection against dirt and bumps. You can find helmet bags in our category bags
