A favorite among eventers and jockeys, skull caps are a great way to protect yourself from injury while in the saddle. With their brimless design, skull caps do not impede the rider's vision in any way. Some equestrians also prefer skull caps over brimmed helmets because there is no brim to shatter or push into the forehead in the case of impact.
At The Cheshire Horse, we carry an extensive selection of skull caps from Charles Owen. These helmets are all SEI/ASTM certified, and they are proven to provide protection against concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). Safety is of the utmost concern with all of our helmet manufacturers.
The Charles Owen 4Star Jockey Helmet, Charles Owen Pro II Skull Helmet, and Charles Owen J3 Skull all have extensive ventilation which keeps the rider cool in the saddle. The innovation 4Star system, developed by Charles Owen, actually encourages sweat to evaporate during your ride.
The skull caps that we sell each come with their own helmet covers (with a soft brim) to provide a traditional look as well as protection for the elements.
To properly care for your skull cap, check out our Helmet Accessories section for cleaning supplies, deodorizers, and helmet bags.
In order to protect you, your helmet must fit correctly. Learn how to select the perfect size for your head on our blog (https://www.cheshirehorse.com/blog/2016/09/fitting-your-riding-helmet/).
