New helmet for an old brain

I have a velvet-covered helmet that I like a lot (Harry Hall), but lately my head has been dripping when when I'm done riding.  It's hard work! Seldom is my helmet dry by the next time I ride, and the ick factor is off scale.

I opted to get a second helmet for swapping out -- got a deal on a Tipperary Sportage at Riding Warehouse. $55 as opposed to almost $80 retail. And it comes in MANY colors! Not orange, however, so I got blue.

It comes in eight colors, and reviews in online forums like the Chronicle of the Horse and  blogs tout it's highly ventilated design and extra coverage of the nape of the neck. Also see the Riding Warehouse youtube review.

I also like the fact that the harness is "leather" and not just the nylon straps that you see on other helmets at this price point.

Note that while I have an advertising relationship with Riding Warehouse, they did not reimburse me for this ad, I did not receive a discount or free product, and Tipperary doesn't know I exist. This is what I ordered, based on my own research and the fact that I truly have had great experiences purchasing from Riding Warehouse...

  2. I'm due for a new helmet. No crashes or falls, but never a bad idea to replace them once in a while. At least every few years, right?

  3. What about a pony tail? That low cut doesn't look like it would accomodate...
