I have a GPA kids helmet and it fits good. So few week ago my young mare got me off and in the dirt. Now the visor part is a little bit broken and I had to tape it. So for shows I need a new helmet. I was thinking about getting a CO Wellington Pro or Classic or a Hampton. Which one would you recommend? And is there a size diffrence in between GPA and CO?
If your GPA fits, a CO may or may NOT fit. The different models have different shapes. For example, I fit a GR8 great. I also wear an older model GPA Textium. The Titium, however, doesn't fit me at all!
You'll really have to try them on and see

In my experience CO & IRH's fit pretty much the same.
GPA fits like no other.
I personally do not like the fit of my GPA. Makes xtra space on the sides of my head and tight from front to back.
CO & IRH are a perfect fit.. well, for my head!
to me the CO and IRH do not fit the same... the CO fits me perfectly, the IRH gave me a headache having it on for 5 min in the tack store! the IRH is more circular, the CO more oval...
if you are having a problem with too much space in the back, im not sure CO is the way to go... because, IMO they are more elongated, oval shape than the GPA is (which also hurt my head-- too tight back to front)
