Hat and Body Protector Fitting

At RB Equestrian we’re passionate about rider safety.

And because we want to help you stay safe in the saddle we:

1. train our team. So with BETA trained hat and body protector fitters, who receive regular ongoing refreshers and updates, you can be confident that we genuinely know what we’re doing;

2. have a huge range of safety products in all price points. Because one (or two, or even three) styles don’t fit all so, we invest in our stock to make sure we can offer you the best possible selection;

3. understand that if you’re just starting out you might not want to spend a fortune. We’ll discuss your budget and talk honestly to you about what your options are;

4. offer an unlimited after-sales service. When you buy a hat or body protector from us we’ll check its fit for you as many times as you need – for free;

5. will tell you when we can’t find your perfect fit. Rarely (but it does happen) we’ll not find a good enough fit for you. And if we don’t have a hat or body protector that we think is satisfactory, we won’t sell you one that isn’t;

6. work with our UK brands to provide made to measure or specifically modified hats and body protectors for tricky fits or where ‘off the peg’ simply isn’t sufficient.

Bespoke and custom hats

We offer a full customisation service on hats from Charles Owen, Samshield and Kask. Visit us in-store to find your perfect fit and choose your bespoke options. Delivery ranges from four to twelve weeks.

Please note:

We do not sell riding hats online. This is because we are legally required to accept returns on all items we sell via the internet. If we sold hats this way we would have no knowledge of what has happened to that hat in the time between it leaving our store and being returned to us (and we’ve all seen how some internet parcels are treated!).

We would strongly recommend any riding hat you purchase is fitted to you before you buy.

All safety equipment is non-returnable unless it is faulty. Please leave yourself at least one hour to have a hat fitted and to ensure you have some time to wear it in-store before you commit to purchasing it. You or your parent/guardian will be required to complete a BETA safety equipment fitting form.
