At M & M Tack Shop we feel that it is of the utmost importance for every equestrian to wear a properly fitted, certified helmet every ride, every time.
We pride ourselves on carrying a wide selection of ASTM/SEI (American Society for Testing and Materials/Safety Equipment Institute) certified helmets to fit every budget.
We recommend that all helmets be replaced after a fall, even if there is no outwardly visible damage. Helmets absorb the force of an impact and interior damage will not be visible to the naked eye.
We also recommend that helmets be replaced at least every 5 years to accomodate for improving technology and as general wear and tear will cause the material of the helmet to degrade over time.
Be sure to store your helmet in an temperature controlled environment and to check it regularly for any obvious signs of damage or wear, for any cracks and to be sure that the buckle is functioning properly.
