The mission to make the world safer through riding helmets

Charles Owen was founded in England in 1911 with the mission of creating products for a safer world. Initially, the company manufactured helmets for the British army, but 17 years into the helmet industry, they shifted their focus to the equestrian sector and quickly gained a reputation as advocates for rider safety. In 1983, for instance, Charles Owen played a key role in developing the first safety standards for riding helmets. The company has since been passed down through generations and is still family-owned, with Charles Owen's great-grandchildren now serving as CEO. Their mission to make the world safer remains central to the production of their riding helmets today.

VG1-Approved Helmets - A must when choosing Charles Owen

All helmets from Charles Owen are, of course, CE-marked and approved according to the EU's basic health and safety requirements. However, every helmet from Charles Owen, and our entire range of riding helmets, is also VG1-approved - because we believe safety is the most crucial attribute of a helmet. It's no accident that Charles Owen was among the first manufacturers in the market to achieve VG1 approval. They are renowned for setting the standard for safety in the industry, and with a helmet from them, you can feel truly secure in the saddle.

VG1 is an additional certification indicating that the riding helmet has been tested to a higher standard, which is not a requirement but a recommendation from the EU Commission to helmet manufacturers. If you want to compete, however, you are required to wear a VG1-approved helmet as a rider.
As we understand that safety comes first, and you have many other important decisions to make when purchasing a new helmet, you are free to choose from all helmets in our carefully curated selection, always ensuring you receive a top-quality approved helmet.
