About Us

Ian Beattie, Founder, has been involved with safety headwear for many years, being an official for Head Safety with British Eventing. After a horrific fall, Peter Charles approached Ian to make the safest hat possible for him to use showjumping which was still both comfortable and stylish.

With extreme investigation into all types of horse and rider falls, and a search for the highest standard of safety, the PROtector horse riding hat is produced with the SNELL E2001, the highest manufactured standard in the World.

The standard tests are extremely aggressive including a UNIQUE TEST simulating a hit from a flying hoof or rail. The compression test gives the rider the best possible chance of survival should the horse roll over him or fall on him. To achieve this, the helmet has an immensely strong carbon fibre reinforced shell, with a high density liner which can take huge IMPACTS.

The fitting system of the PROtector riding helmet allows the hat to fit your head just for you and the lacing at the back of the harness, when firmly secured, helps to prevent any tipping forward over a fence. The PROtector hat is surprisingly light in weight and is sold with a very nice padded and zipped hat bag to keep it safe.
