Adjusting the helmet:
For optimal protection, the helmet should be in close contact with the head without squeezing it. When properly adjusted, the helmet should not slide forward, backward, or from side to side, even when you are in motion while riding.
3
Harness adjustment
For optimal support, the helmet's harness/chinstrap should go under the throat, not over the chin.

Shock absorption
This helmet has been designed to completely or partially absorb impacts to the rider's head in the event of a fall or violent impact. When an impact occurs, the helmet and/or the padding can deform or break to absorb the energy of the impact. DAMAGE MAY NOT BE VISIBLE, BUT ANY HELMET THAT HAS SUFFERED AN IMPACT MUST BE REPLACED.

Do not buy - Not legal at riding schools
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I purchased this about 4-5 weeks ago for my daughter to start having lessons. Unfortunately after wearing twice for private hacking we booked at a BHA registered school for proper lessons to be told it does not meant required standards. It is unacceptable to say it is ok for private riding, the standards are there for a reason and as a parent I want the product to meet those standards. I was unable to return as the store would not accept a return on the hat. The poor review is delayed as it was whilst on holiday that we were told it was not up to standard.

All our Fouganza helmets are legal in UK and follow the European standards with either Directive 89/686/EEC or VG1 01.040 2014-12. Also, our products are tested in labs and real life situations to ensure the safety and security of our riders.
Our helmets are only suitable for private riding in the UK and I am aware that the riding schools are requesting this PAS015 standards to ride in clubs. We are working hard to ensure that all our Fouganza helmets will be validated PAS015 for summer 2019 and remain the same prices.

Bought this helmet for my daughter to have horse riding lessons but the horse riding school has said it does not conform to required standards. Nowhere is this made clear when we bought the helmet which we wouldn't have bought had we known

Great value riding hat
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
My daughter loves her new riding hat. Fits well, very adjustable and looks great
Does not meet British Horse Society standards.
Used for 1 week or less
It does not meet British Horse Society standards so you are actually not allowed to wear it in any of the member stalls.
Wasn't even allowed to wear it once and now I have to return it at my own expenses...
Response of the brand
Hi Andrea,
Thanks for your message and apologies for the confusion with the hat. We have a message below all the riding hats online explaining whether that specific model is suitable for use at stables or competitions, as opposed to purely private riding in the UK. We understand that it's possible to miss these, so would be more than happy to exchange the hat for another model (PAS015 certified) or for a full refund.
Apologies for the inconvenience,
Regards, 
ROSS
Horse riding hat

Ordered two hats which arrived in good time and were well packed. We had seen them in the shop previously so I knew what to expect with the product. They fit the children well and look smart.
