After riding my hony yesterday (who I've come to discover LOOOOOOOOOOVES to jump, but that's another thread), I decided to do a little shopping. I've been unemployed since March 6th and I haven't done ANY horse shopping because I knew I couldn't afford it. Well, I got a job offer the other day (yay!) and start on June 1st. So, to celebrate the fact that I am no longer going to have to get rid of my horses, I went to Saddlery Liquidators and Dover to see if there was anything I couldn't live without.

When I got to Dover, I stopped by the helmet section to take a look around. I need a new schooling helmet, so I was able to justify trying on a few. I'm not a GPA fan, simply because of the price tag attached. However, I really like the look of the GR8s and the IRH Elite. I tried on a couple of IRH helmets and they just didn't fit right. A little too round for my head. And then I tried on the GR8... *dreamy sigh* HEAVEN!!!

I am now in love and feel as though I MUST get one. It's totally out of my price range and I'm not sure how I can justify it to myself, but I WANT!!! And it looked really darned good on me, too. My other helmets give me a bit of that bobblehead look, but this helmet was out of this world.

So, I am now a convert and am working on crossing over the dark side of expensive helmet head land. Now to decide which color to get... :winkgrin:

The JR8 is almost the exact same thing and it's at least $100 cheaper :)

Ooooh, good call! Thanks! I'll check into ebay and the JR8. Does the JR8 come in brown or blue? Though for saving $100, I'm willing to sacrifice my color choice. :lol:

I love the GR8- and I don't believe they are exact same- Different harness maybe?

You're right. I just looked them up online and that was the one thing that was really different. I admit to liking the harness on the GR8 better.

Search for the topic about the gr8 and ayr8 in the hunter ring. Someone posted some uk ebay sellers who had the gr8 for like $160 plus about $20 shipping. I bought my ayr8 overseas for cheap and its the same thing as the ones sold here.

I couldn't find it (found the thread I thought, but no answers to the question) and couldn't find any on eBay. Where did you find yours?
