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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dominogirl 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!!

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!

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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rachel 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.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jennifer 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.

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DOYEACO 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..

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kelsea 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!

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!

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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lynda Burch 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
