Rated 5 out of 5 by whooo going to get one excited! February 24, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Troxel may have saved my life I took a fall from a horse that resuled in a direct kick to the side of my head causing a brain bleed. The doctor said this helmet may have safed my life.The helmet was crushed but not my brain.Thank you Troxel November 25, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome helmet! Fits my head great and is soooo light and comfortable! Its taken some beatings and doesn't even have a scratch. EXCELLENT PRICE! November 21, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great!! I have had this helmet for 8 yrs. I love it, was my very first helmet that i bought and still in great condition. I use mine just for schooling because it does looked worn.(scratches/dings) Very comfortable and at a great price, would recomend to anyone. November 1, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Great Helmet! This helmet looks nice, fits marvelously well, and is the best helmet you can find for the money! I'd used them for my riding students for years, and then i had a realization: why pay more for a "fancy" schooling helmet for myself that performs the exact same function? So I bought one of these, and I haven't looked back! They're very lightweight, low-profile (don't look bulky like a lot of helmets do), and comfortable. They have nice vents for good airflow, and nothing bulky at the nape of your neck like some of the dial-fit helmets do. I definitely recommend this helmet!! October 27, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic! My best friend bought one of these helmets when she was in a tight spot. She fell off and cracked her previous helmet and had to hurry out and get a new one. At first she was afraid that she made a rushed decision and would come to realize that she hated it. Fortunately, she LOVES the helmet. You can hardly get her to take it off. She said Troxel will be the only helmet brand she'll be buying for a long time! She's actually convinced me to buy my own. I highly recommend this helmet! August 22, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great deal It is an affordable helmet, is comfortable and fits well. I hate the dial system because it gets caught in my hair and is generally uncomfortable. I LOVE that this helmet goes on easily and once fitted it doesn't have to be adjusted again. Just buckle up and ride! July 28, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good for a beginner This was my first helmet. Although it was not pretty, it was functional and comfortable. I wish the venting was better and I wish there were more Duratec Matte colors. The dial sizing makes it easy to grow in the helmet. A great helmet for beginners. July 7, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Helmet I have owned these helmets for many years. They have been tossed around by my kids and even when thrown from the horse the plastic did not even crack. Great value for the price however I do prefer the dial system now. Too bad they would not change to the quick fit system. June 15, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by runs a little large I was debating between this and the equi-lite dfs helmet and went with Troxel based on the brand name and the slightly lower profile/look of the helmet. I didn't realize this did not have a dial fit system in it and now wish I had gone with the equi-lite. I know it doesn't advertise as a dfs, I just missed that detail. They do include some extra padding that you can put under the edges of the liner to adjust the fit, but I really prefer a dial system and since I bought this to fit different kids the dial would have been easier. The plastic outside part of the helmet also seems a little brittle. January 7, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good helmet I have had this helmet for a long time and it has served me well for lots of rides, shows (and some falls). It is a good quality yet cheaply-priced helmet. It is very light and comfortable. The one complaint I have is that it cracks VERY easily, even when you haven't fallen (like, by transporting in a suitcase/duffel or a helmet bag). Overall I think it has held up very nicely and I would buy it again. December 27, 2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice Helmet I had this helmet for about 4 years, it was very nice and held up well. The only problems are that on the plastic, lots of marks show up, also it looks kind of funny, becuase it makes your head big. I liked this helmet, but recently upgraded to an IRH ATH, which I highly recommend, by the way. November 28, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by saved me numerous times I have an appy who is a rescue horse and from what we (trainer and I) can tell he was abused, he is and always will be a nervous horse.. but has come a long way and is usually very good on the trail. That being said I have been thrown (bucking is his fav way of getting rid of you and I have had horses all of my life but he bucks hard and fast). Anyway when he was still fairly green broke he decided he did not want me getting on but i was already practically on when he started bucking. I went off his left side and rolled to my right ending up facing away from him. As he was running off he was kicking out with his back feet, yep you guessed it, one of those hooves hit the back of my helmet. I ended up with some scratches on my forearm and a pretty good crack down the back of the helmet (immed bought another), but it saved my life I have no doubt. I have been tossed a few more times, not neccessarily involving my head but still glad it was there (I landed on my side/back those times). I wish everyone would wear a helmet, I hear about way to many people dying from hitting their heads when being thrown..too many think they are to cool to wear one or "my horse won't freak".. well we had two women over the last two years that thought that and ended up dying, neither had a helmet and both hit their heads... another survived (no helmet... but almost didn't pull thru-hospitalized for a long time... she now wears one. well you are not to cool to live another day when you choose to wear a helmet.. November 28, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very nice helmet for the price Fits well and good overall helmet for the price. Good quality and a good look. October 6, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by :) I have had this helment for 8 years. I have fallen off many times and even though it cracks easily it is still great quality! August 18, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by nice helmet! I have been bucked off a lot but yesterday i went head first into a rock and just minor injuries. If i didnt have this helmet on, who knows what would have does crack easily which is why im buying a new one now but they last many yrs but a cover helps protect it July 30, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great, but some kinks I love this helmet but my only problem is after awhile of long rides in the sun the glue holding the visor on melted and now I am basically either riding without a visor (with all the dried up glue it looks disgusting) or I'm pinning it on and fighting it. But overall great helmet! July 18, 2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by Saved my brain I got t-boned by a 1400lb horse last night and though my helmet is "toast" all I got was a lump on my head and a headache. Thank goodness for this helmut! July 10, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Loved mine I loved my Sport helmet. The price was right and it worked for several years before I noticed a soft spot in the back. It had plenty of ventilation, and was quite comfy. July 8, 2010
Rated 2 out of 5 by Helmet protection I have owned this style helmet for several year and had been happy until 2 weeks ago. I was bucked off my horse and when he decided to use my helmet as a starting block, I received a severe concussion, with some bleeding. It was because this helmet did not come down long enough. So, I would suggest you make the foam edge longer and sturdier. If had not had a helmet on, I would not be writing this, however, it will not be able to ride for at least another month. Please know what you are buying and think about what COULD happen if...! July 8, 2010

My head is 22 1/2 in. What size is that?
A shopper on Oct 6, 2013
Best Answer: I bought a small for a 21-1/2 head size. It fit perfectly. I would suggest you get a medium for the 22-1/2 inch size.

sorry it took so long to answer but I couldn't remember what size I bought for my granddaughter so had to wait until I could find out from her.

It is a great helmet

how good are these helmets?
Kevin M on Dec 24, 2013
Best Answer: Troxel Sport Schooling Helmets are a great value. Their safely rating has been as good or better than other brands. I have a children's riding program, and use several of these. They look nice and are easy to clean. I have had other more expensive helmets for myself and when it was time to replace them, I went back to the basic Troxel Sport Schooling Helmet.
I also have a couple of the next level of Troxel helmets which have the dial fit system. There is a dial at the back of the helmet to help adjust the fit. It helps to quickly change the fit when the helmet is being used by more than one person. In my experience, for people with a small head, it creates a better fit.

how do you size a helmet?
A shopper on Sep 10, 2013
Best Answer: Measure around the crown of your head so put the beginning of the tape in the middle of your forehead, wrap around the back of the head and bring the measuring tape back to the front of your forehead where you started. It is easiest to have someone else do the measuring. Helmet sizes vary so there should be a chart that is associated with the brand of helmet you are looking for. Does that help?

Does this fit a 2.5 year old?
danielle r on Dec 30, 2014
Best Answer: It depends on the circumference of the child's head as sizes vary among the same age range. This helmet is not adjustable for size like some of the other helmets are. We use this helmet for some 2 1/2 year-olds and for others up to age 8 or 9, depending on their size. We use it mostly for our "Little Buckaroos" riders, age 5 to 7, but, again there is a wide variance in sizes by age.

Best Answer: For adults, although it depends on the size of your head. The straps are adjustable, and there are spongy inserts that come with it that can be put inside the helmet to make it fit snugger or looser. I am 5'10", but I have a pretty small head. My friends with teenagers have tried to borrow the helmet for their kids, but it's actually too small for them. I have the same helmet in a small and a medium. I wear the small in the summer. This allows heat to escape through the vent holes in the top and front. Helmets with a solid top and no vent holes are too hot for me in the middle of the summer. I wear the medium in the winter because it allows enough space to get a hood or a toboggan under it to keep my ears warm and still have the helmet protection.

I absolutely love this particular helmet. The shape and contour are very comfortable for my head shape, so that it never gives me a headache after hours of wearing it like many helmets do. It's lightweight, and I barely even notice having it on. It's also the most durable helmet I've ever had in this price range. I do mostly mountain trail riding, and my helmets get used and abused HARD. None of the snaps have ever broken, the joints have never separated, and the bill has never cracked. I had my first one for about six years and took several hard falls and many tree limbs in the face without it breaking. My horse shied hard at a full gallop one day, and the saddle girth had gotten too loose. The saddle slid sideways and I flew off and landed head first on a big rock. The rock broke out the back of the helmet where it took the brunt of the impact, but it completely protected me from what would likely have been a deadly accident. I was already very happy with the helmet, but that sealed it for me. I have never used any helmet but this one since. For the price, you can't get better, more comfortable protection, and the durability is excellent in my experience.

Could you give me the interior measurements of xs helmets?. We have several helmets and we don't want to buy additional same size helmets. I don't have head size measurements because I am teaching multiple children.
A shopper on Mar 23, 2015
Best Answer: The extra small will fit a head up to 20 1/2 inches in circumference. If you need something adjustable, the Troxel Spirit Schooling Helmet can fit 20 1/2 inches up to 22 inches.
