An approved riding helmet is the cleverest way to keep yourself safe when riding. Whilst no helmet prevents all types of damage, you are far less likely to sustain a severe scalp lesion if you wear an ASTM / SEI-certified helmet. Riding helms are engineered with one major objective to safeguard your mind and your brains when you are falling.
A large part of the collision with the horses heads is absorbed by the shock-absorbing inserts inside. Formerly known as the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), ASTM International is one of the world's most prestigious standardization bodies, which sets the standard for everything from hardening of cement and the sharpness of paprika to protecting headwear.
SEI has chosen the ASTM F1163 norm for riding helms to assess the helmet's performances. The SEI test must be performed in an accredited laboratory in accordance with ASTM F1163. A number of different types of sport use different yardsticks, such as polo and bull riding. Normally Bred Racing demands a helmet according to the Snell norm. The ASTM/SEI helmet contains the date of production and the SEI label under the headlining inside the helmet.
Alternatively, you can go to the SEI website for a list of SEI approved wear. It is Troxel's recommendation to change the helmet every five years or whenever the helmet suffers a severe shock. Riding helms are designed for one collision only. If you do not see any harm, the area of the helmet where the collision took place may be at risk.
Helmet damaged in an crash can be repaired for a charge within two years from the date of sale.
