Charles Owen, Have been producing riding hats and promoting safety hat standards for four generations.
To own a Charles Owen helmet is to own not only a part of equestrian history, but its future.
World famous for raising the bar in safety, Charles Owen is a leading British manufacturer of riding helmets with a history dating back over 110 years.
When Charles Owen himself founded the company in 1911, his mission was to make products ‘for a safer world’.
The company has remained within the same family for four generations, today under the direction of founder Charles Owen’s great-grandson.
A brief history
The early days revolved around manufacturing military helmets for the British Army. The company transitioned into the equestrian market 17 years later with racing helmets for jockeys and quickly established itself as the gold standard for safety.
Charles Owen was involved in creating the very first equestrian helmet safety standard, and in 1983 the company created the first dual-standard riding helmet in answer to Pony Club’s demand for safer riding gear.
One year later, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II awarded Charles Owen the Royal Warrant as protective headgear supplier to the Royal Mews at Buckingham Palace.
From the first patent granted in 1924 to improve ventilation and fit through the Microfit system found in all Charles Owen helmets today, the company has always prioritised correct and comfortable fit.
Today the company name is deeply ingrained within the global equestrian industry as a trusted brand known for safety, quality and prestige fashion.
