A good, correctly fitting riding hat is an essential piece of kit to ensure your child is safe in the saddle and whilst on the ground handling ponies. The Gatehouse kids riding hats range includes hats and skull caps certified to Snell E2016, making them the perfect choice for everyday use as well as competition. Gatehouse are pioneers in riding hat technology and are proudly recognised by the British Standards Institute for consistency and high levels of test results
Riding hats should always be properly fitted to ensure they can work effectively and offer the correct degree of protection. We recommend always getting a hat fitted by a BETA certified hat fitter and offer this service in our store in Northumberland. Also remember that whilst children are growing the shape and size of their head will change so you should check the fit of a childs hat regularly to avoid any discomfort.
