There's nothing that I can find about safety certifications, though presumably they have different regulations in Europe? I've never seen Casco in the U.S. and couldn't find any info so far in my Google searching. I'm planning to stick to my traditional velvet helmet or my top hat in the show ring but does anyone know if these would they be legal for warm-up/schooling days? Also, any experiences with them? Are they as pretty in person as they look in the pics?
I have one! Not to make anyone jealous or anything But, I'm not really in need of it, I prefer the look of my Hampton. Considering putting it on eBay but with all the recent horror stories I've heard about sellers being scammed, not sure I'll go that route!
Hey there people with Casco helmets can you tell me if they would fit a round head. I have an old style GPA textium that fit me but it's getting old. The new ones (GPA,CO,Samshield) are way too oval so I'm hopeful that this brand might work. I'm looking at this one: http://www.calevo.com/cgi-bin/calevo/2100227.html
It comes in S,M,L so I assume that the interior is adjustable to fit a range of sizes? Your advice needed.
I don't know for the US, but in Canada the equine Canada rules states that the helmet must be ASTM/SEI or BSI/BS EN1384, I’m sure the US rule is similar since Canada pretty much follow the US rules. The Casco helmets are EN1384 certify so they should be accepted on the show ground even do they are not ASTM/SEI certify. There is also a distributor in the US that sell ASTM/SEI Casco helmet, they have a different model call for example Spirit US. http://www.pillasport.com/
I bought a Casco Spirit Dressage helmet black and gold from Calevo. It is very comfortable and it looks amazing. It came with 4 small pads that you can add inside to change the shape of it. My head is oval and I did not need them, but I guess you could add the pad front and back to make the shape rounder.
" properly fastened protective headgear which meets or exceeds ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials)/SEI (Safety Equipment Institute) standards for equestrian use and carries the SEI tag."
On the SEI site only the "Casco Spirit US" is SEI certified.

I guess that means no Peacock helmet....
