Gatehouse Riding Hats and the SNELL Standard Tests

We sell a large number of riding hats and for those riding hats with a SNELL Standard it is quite impressive to see the testing they have gone through to achieve this Safety Grading.



In the Gatehouse Riding Hats range we keep 4 in stock of which the RXC1 and the HS1 have the Snell Standard


Gatehouse HS1 Jockey Skull Riding Helmets - Adults

The HS1 Jockey Skull conforms to SNELL E2001, the highest manufacturer equestrian safety standard in the world. This standard includes a unique test that simulates a rider falling into a fence rail, or having a secondary hit by a horse’s hoof.

The hat features a top quality leather four point harness and Gatehouse Airflow lining.

All hats are supplied with a free padded storage bag.

The HS1 helmet lining fabric is now treated with the AEGIS Microbe Shield. This is a permanently bonded anti-microbial barrier that provides protection against odour, staining, and the deterioration caused by bacteria, fungus and other micro-organisms.

Suitable for all affiliated competition (BHA exception, check for their most up-to-date announcement regarding SNELL 2001 acceptance).

You can find the SNELL E2001 safety standard located on the crown liner as you look directly into the hat or under the black removable crown liner next to the batch number and production date on the white EPS shell.
