WE ARE COMMITTED TO GIVING RIDERS WHAT THEY WANT!
As many of you may know, the history of IRH began in the 1950’s when Angelo Plastino began making riding caps for department stores, retail shops, the Royal Family, and other prominent equestrians of that time. Frank Plastino joined his dad in the 1970s, and in 1986 Frank founded IRH with the vision that safety would drive this industry. During the early 2000’s Frank expanded IRH into a worldwide brand.
Currently Frank's only son, Justin Plastino stepped into IRH. While he was juggling the daily workings of IRH and his work of 11 years in the financial field, Justin realized that this great company and the Equestrian industry is truly where his heart lies.
It is now Justin’s turn to take the reins and continue the family’s passion for producing great products that are safe,
effective, and beautiful! By combining his passion and the old school family values that were instilled in him by his
parents, Justin believes that he and his great team will take IRH to the next level.

NEW! Helmet Bag with IRH Logo
Protect your investment with a stylish padded helmet bag from International Riding Helmets. Gone are the days of tossing your helmet into the tack box after a ride. Hang this IRH logo bag from the carry handle or shoulder strap to protect it from potential scuffs and marks made by other riding equipment. Hang it neatly in the tack room, trailer or storage unit in between rides. Remember to always store your helmets in a climate-controlled space (definitely not in the trunk of your car or in the direct hot sun)
I wanted to send a message to tell you how this helmet saved me from an injury or even worse. I was eventing a few weeks ago and my horse stopped at the cross country jump and I came off hitting my head, arm and knee and scraping my face. I just ordered another IRH to replace it. I'm so happy with how this helmet worked. I never felt any head related symptoms. Never realized I hit my head until I saw my helmet. Thank you for making such a great product!
My IRH helmet saved me from serious injury or death. I was thrown from my 17.3hh + gelding and landed on my head. I walked away with 13 stitches, no concussion - not even a headache. Highly recommend IRH.
Thanks to IRH helmet, my daughter in law survived a horrible crash with her horse landing on top of her.
Your IRH helmet allowed my daughter to walk away from a nasty fall yesterday. I seriously believe this hit could have severely injured her if she was not wearing a good helmet. She has had previous falls that ended with concussions that made us switch brands to IRH. I will replace this helmet with a new IRH!
We just wanted to give a huge shout out to IRH. Our daughter has a show helmet and lesson helmet that are both IRH. She loves the comfort and durability, and as parents, we love the safety features on all of your helmets! We just wanted to let you all know how wonderful your helmets are. Thanks IRH!
