Youth that rides the wildest horse,

Youth that throws the dead­li­est steer, Spend­ing strength without re­morse,

Grap­pling with the ghosts of fear, Knows it only holds to-day All it freely flings away. ---Vance Palmer, “Youth and Age”

Rid­ers who pur­chase an Equi-Pro West­ern hel­met (sug­gested re­tail, $59.95), from In­ter­na­tional Rid­ing Hel­mets, can choose from one of three West­ern-themed de­signs in four col­ors. In ad­di­tion to a dial-fit sys­tem for cus­tom­ized fit, the hel­met has a mois­ture-wick­ing, re­mov­able, wash­able liner and mul­ti­ple front vents to fa­cil­i­tate air cir­cu­la­tion. Avail­able in XS (61/ to 6 3/8) to M/L (6 7/ to 7 3/8). Visit 8 8 www.IRHhel­mets.com.

Fea­tur­ing a rub­ber­ized sur­face with an eye-catch­ing “crackle” fin­ish, the Deluxe Schooler Matte Crackle Hel­met (sug­gested re­tail, $59.95), from Ova­tion, has high-flow air vents, a re­mov­able break­away vi­sor, a re­mov­able, wash­able liner and an easy-ad­just dial for a snug, com­fort­able fit.

Com­bin­ing top-of-the-line lux­ury with per­for­mance, the Star Lady Car­bon (sug­gested re­tail, $1,839.95), from Kask, fea­tures a light­weight, im­pact-re­sis­tant molded car­bon outer shell. The lin­ing is 100 per­cent merino wool, which is both nat­u­rally breath­able and an­tibac­te­rial. A self-ad­just­ing fit­ting sys­tem cra­dles the back of the rider’s head, and the chin­strap is lined with soft­ened leather for comfort.
