Helmets are sensitive to extreme heat (70°C+) and solvents (dry cleaning fluids).
Cleaning of the interior should be done using helmet cleaning products, followed by vacuum drying the lining. It is important to use minimum amounts of water as helmets are difficult to dry and can easily become mouldy.
With any cleaning agent, it is important to test a small section to establish any adverse reaction from the material.
After riding, leave the helmet in a warm, dry place overnight.
Do not dry in front of a fire or on a radiator.
Do not store it in a plastic bag before it is dry.
A properly fitted Riding Helmet helps to absorb any impact to the head and provides cushioning to the skull, reducing the risk of a serious head injury or even saving your life.
There are several different types of protective headgear for riding horses but they fall largely into two broader categories – Riding Helmets and Skull Caps.
Riding helmets are the traditional type of hard hat. They are sometimes covered in velvet or maybe plastic. They usually come in dark colours.
Skull caps are like the type of headgear which jockeys wear. They can be personalised with coloured silks – peaked covers in bright colours which fit over the cap.
How Riding Helmets work: On impact the helmet does two things. Firstly the shell diffuses the impact over a large area, secondly the liner reduces bruising to the brain by increasing the length of time it takes you to stop. Basically the hat liner collapses, protecting your head.
It is best to refrain from ever buying a second hand hat, as you do not know what has happened to it before. Any hat that has been involved in an impact, even one so little as having been dropped onto a hard surface, should be replaced. This is because even small hair line cracks, which can be caused by slight impacts, can reduce the effectiveness of the hat.
