How to Fit for an Equestrian Riding Helmet

In honor of Helmet Awareness Week we will be sharing valuable information about helmets with all of you all week! The first installment covers how to properly fit your riding helmet.

Does your riding helmet fit well?

A well-fitting riding helmet should fit snugly and not rock from side to side or from front to back. As helmets age they may not fit as well and may need to be replaced. Alternatively you could consider a helmet replacement liner. The first step to make sure that you get a helmet that fits is to measure your head correctly!

A little while ago we actually put together a post on How to Measure your Head for a Helmet. Follow these guidelines to measure your own head or ask a friend to help or go into any Dover Saddlery store for a helmet fitting. After you know your correct size you can have fun choosing a new riding helmet from the huge selection at Dover Saddlery.
