Can’t find a riding helmet to fit your child?

You may remember that in 2016 we were approached by a school on behalf of young man called Tommy Lee. Tommy Lee was unable to participate in their weekly horse riding sessions as the riding centre did not have a helmet that would fit Tommy Lee’s unique head shape.

Our Innovation Team worked hard to design and make a bespoke riding helmet that meant Tommy Lee could take part in riding lessons with his friends. The helmet was not only comfortable but safe and certified by the British Standard Institute (BSI).

Thanks to a donation from Mr and Mrs Coventry at Claire’s Project our team are now able to develop more of these equestrian helmets. So if your child loves horses and would love to try equestrian hobbies but can’t participate because of the standard helmet size,  then please get in touch to find out more.
