Jockey skull caps are designed and manufactured to provide riders with the highest levels of protection and safety across all equestrian disciplines in the event of an accident or fall. Though not a “stylish” as peaked styles of helmet, jockey skulls are the ultimate safety option for all riders; they are also often a cheaper option for every day riding or for a children’s riding hat.
Skull caps must be worn for cross country riding when you’re running at affiliated, Pony Club or Riding Club events – fixed peak helmets are not permitted. They are typically worn with a hat silk and so will generally have a more textured outside surface to give the silk something to grip to. Choosing a jockey skull lets you change your hat silk to match your outfit or to swap for a smarter one for competing.
