Horse Riding Hat

  Riding hats consist of a hard shell lined with shock absorbing material and provide vital protection for the rider's head should they fall from or be kicked by a horse. As well as wearing a riding hat at all times when riding, it’s also recommended to wear a riding hat while lungeing, or handling any horse from the ground. Riding hats should always be replaced immediately if they suffer a severe impact, whether this if from being dropped onto a hard surface or after a fall from a horse. Although no visible damage may be seen, any severe impact to the riding hat can result in diminished protection. In addition the protection offered by any riding hat diminishes over time as the padding inside becomes compressed. This is why  riding hat should be routinely replaced every 4-5 years even if there are no visible signs of damage. You should never buy a second hand hat as there’s no way to be certain that any second hand riding hat, even if it looks intact, has not received a severe impact in the past that could result in diminished protection.
