TuffRider Show Time Plus Helmet


The two Harris sisters, Emily and Sarah, have dove into the equestrian world full force. From visiting top venues to speaking with professionals to creating informative articles and equestrian product reviews, Sarah and Emily have sure caught the horse bug and want to share all of their experiences and discoveries! 

When visiting, you are visiting the home of TuffRider and Henri de Rivel. Our entire line of products are available at competitive prices with quality materials from helmets to saddles...

If you plan on showing your horse, you will need a show-appropriate helmet. The TuffRider Show Time Plus helmet has a sleek, professional look that is sought after in the show ring and gives  a fashionable edge while schooling. This unique look is achieved with a soft, traditional suede exterior with a decorative sparkle patch on top- a great look and feel for all of you dressage queens out there! This helmet easily rivals the look of more expensive brands without the price tag and all of the style. 

For comfort while riding, the Show Time Plus helmet does feature vent slots around the sparkle top. A CoolMax liner comes with all TuffRider helmets. This liner is lightweight, breathable and moisture wicking. Helmets tend to collect sweat and dirt from hair; to combat this, the liner is removable and machine washable to maintain a fresh scent and keep your helmet clean. 

A removable liner is also convenient for size adjustments. If you’re required to wear your hair tucked and, like Emily, have A LOT of hair, removing the liner will give you some more room to accommodate a luscious, thick mane. The liner is also sold separately in case you need a replacement. 

Only available in black, a safe color to wear for every discipline, this helmet is available in a range of sizes from 6 ⅜  to 7 ⅝. 

Safety first, every time- this helmet is certified with the ASTM # F1163-15 as recommended by USEF. 

A drawstring TuffRider helmet bag makes it convenient to carry your helmet to and from the barn and gives protection from dust and scratches. 


Let’s take a look at the bones: 

ABS and EPS are both specialized economic materials for safety equipment. 

ABS stands for Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (say that 10 times fast!), which is a specialized plastic that can hold up with extreme temperatures without cracking and is scratch resistant. EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) is the protective inner portion that absorbs impact and reduces the aggregate force that your head undergoes during a blow or fall. 

EPS crushes after impact, this is why it is imperative to not drop or hit your helmet and to always replace after a fall or blow to the head. 

Look good, feel good. Feel good, ride good.
