Is it safe to ride a horse without a helmet?
We do not recommend ever letting your child ride without a helmet. Even though western riders tend to ride without one we still encourage the young riders to wear one. You can invest in a helmet that has a comfortable fit and your child won't even know it's there. The risk of injury is always there when dealing with horses, children should ideally always wear one when handling horses on the ground too. In Australia riding schools also often offers children's horse riding helmets to borrow for each riding lesson. Make sure the helmet you invest in also covers the back of the head completely. We stock different colours and brands so have made it easy to find the right helmet for your kids.
Measuring a Child’s Head Size for a Horse Riding Helmet
A child's head usually measures between 49-54cm. Grab a measuring tape and measure (in cm) around the widest part of your child's head, this will give you the right helmet size. If unsure and in between 2 sizes we recommend to go up one size unless you want a snug fit.
