Excellent child's horse riding hat easy size adjust and comfortable fit, my 10 year old daughter loves that it looks professional
Price does not comply with British standard
I bought this hat for my son who is a modern pentathlete and he has been told he cannot wear this hat in competition as it does not comply with British standard. It makes me think it does not provide sufficient protection. There was no information at the store to explain this.Brand response :
Thanks for your message and apologies that you bought the wrong hat. The legislation changed on the 1st Jan this year, so all the Fouganza hats are only suitable for private riding. For competitions and club use, a hat that conforms to PAS015 is necessary. We have worked to make this clear online, however in store the signs only state the legislation that the hats comply to rather than specifically stating whether they are suitable for competitions or not. We are working on some signage to easily display this.
In the meantime, please could you return your hat to your closest store for a full refund/exchange, we do sell some hats that do comply with PAS015, links below.

Fits really well, light weight, reasonable price -
This riding helmet is great for anyone who is a beginner. It's lightweight and quite comfortable. The quality is outstanding, considering the price. Great for anyone who is just starting off, and wants their own helmet.
My only minus is that the size guide is somewhat iffy. According to the size guide, I should wear a 54 cm helmet, when in reality my size is a 58 cm. I would suggest trying on a few helms in stores, and then buying the best-fitting size here.
