* The manufacturers of these helmets have not sent us their certificates, but because they are adapted general equestrian helmets, we accept them.
In addition, we have seen evidence to suggest that that La Martina and Falcon/Kolt Gear are soon to introduce compliant helmets. These companies do not produce general equestrian helmets, so the certification process has been novel for them.
