We’ve all seen western helmet/hats and to be truthful they just don’t have the same visual appeal as a traditional western cowboy hat. I know we should all be wearing helmets and I totally agree that it’s the safer option. It’s just so hard to find one that looks good while riding western!
Thankfully Karen and her husband Mark Plumlee have come up with a great looking way to sport a western helmet. The best part is you can choose the brim of any hat you like and you can make it yourself! They have a Facebook page with instructions, but we have also included them below.
I can see this being done with show hats as well. Just use something like a GPS helmet that’s small and dark black and put your favorite black hat brim on it. We encourage everyone to ride with a helmet and this just makes it a bit more stylish!
