Horseback riding, however marvelous and exciting, exposes the rider to certain risks. You should never forget that it’s a living being you are dealing with, and its behavior, even though predictable, is never under your complete control. Horseback riders wear a full set of protective equipment for a good reason. A reason that should never be neglected, for there is nothing more important than your life. Whereas it might not be entirely fair to other body parts, the head is our operations center, and its safety is of paramount importance. For this purpose, you need a reliable helmet, and nobody knows more about preserving a rider’s head than Troxel.
To whom are you ready to entrust your safety when riding a horse? Horseback riding instructors are the obvious answer, but what about the equipment? It's hard to find people more knowledgeable about our health than doctors, and that’s where Troxel outruns all other horseback riding equipment brands. The company was founded by Dr. Richard Timms, a physician with a background in critical care and research. He was honored to be an expert consultant to the State of California Department of Public Health on all injury monitoring and prevention efforts - a position that leaves no doubts about his level of expertise. All Troxel helmets are designed with this mastery as their mainstay, not having let the users down since the year the company introduced its first helmet - 1992. Today, Troxel keeps being the most trusted brand of ASTM/SEI-certified equestrian helmets, with over 4 million riders actively using their goods.
An inexperienced rider may think that all helmets are the same and they can use cycling, construction, and Troxel riding helmets interchangeably. The truth is, they are all certified to a different standard and are not tested to the same impact speed. A Troxel helmet may not save you from a falling brick (only providence is capable of that), but you won’t find better protection for your head when riding a horse. Gritr Outdoors has a rich selection of Troxel helmets of various configurations and styles. Be it a Troxel Spirit, Intrepid, Liberty, Sierra helmet, or headgear from any other series, you can find it here. If you are not sure which size suits you best, you can follow a Troxel helmet size chart.
