Anyone know where to get some? I got a new helmet for Christmas and even though it is the same brand and size as my old one, it is a smidgen too big.
In the past, foam inserts have always come with the helmet but not this time. I've tried various searches to no avail and looked at "helmet accessories" on tack websites. The only thing remotely close are the cooling/sweat liners that are disposable.
I don't have a tack shop nearby (closest English shop is nearly 2 hours away) so I have been searching online and failing...
Check the home section of Walmart for adhesive foam insulation - like you'd use around a door. I used this back in the day to adjust the fit of a hat by tucking it under the sweatband. Realize, too, though that if your helmet doesn't fit so well, it may not protect so well.
My girls are in Pony Club and we do a lot of helmet fitting. Your helmet should be pretty snug when it's new --- you may need the next smallest size. Over time it the padding will pack down and it will loosen. When it's on and harnesed, you should be able to tug the brim up and down and see your eyebrows move.
As other have said, panty liners work well. I keep a supply of them on hand just for this!
