How to choose your helmet size

Step 1: Measure your head

Use a measuring tape to measure around your head one inch above your eyebrows. Or use a string to measure and then lay it out and measure the length of the string.

Step 2: Choose your size

Use the chart to convert the measurement to your helmet size

Step 3: Fit your Helmet

Fit the helmet model you would like to purchase. The helmet should have a snug-but-comfortable fit and should sit within the width of one or two fingers above your brow. A helmet that sits low on your eyebrows is too big.

Step 4: Buckle the Chin Strap

This strap should hold the helmet in place without discomfort.

Tip: dress your hair as you would do during horse riding

Riding Helmet Size Chart

There is no standardized horse riding helmet size chart. Helmets may fit you differently from different manufacturers, as the sizing can be different.

The shape of the helmets may also be different. Some will fit perfectly for you while others won’t fit well based on the shape of your head. Compare your head measurement with the size chart for each manufacturer to get a starting point for trying on helmets, and allow that to guide which helmets you try on.
