Response of the brand
Dear Ruth,
thank you for your review on our horse riding helmets. I am sorry to read to you were not satisfied with our product.
All our Fouganza helmets are legal in UK and follow the European standards with either Directive 89/686/EEC or VG1 01.040 2014-12. Also, our products are tested in labs and real life situations to ensure the safety and security of our riders.
Our helmets are only suitable for private riding in the UK and I am aware that the riding schools are requesting this PAS015 standards to ride in clubs. We are working hard to ensure that all our Fouganza helmets will be validated PAS015 for summer 2019.
To find a solution to the problem, I offer you to return or exchange your helmet in one of our Decathlon stores with a printed copy a this email.
I apologize about the lack of information you had in store and wish you a lovely day.

Great helmet
Used for 1 week or less
I’m extremely happy with this hat. I got my original size from my other hat and it fits me perfectly. It also came quicker than it was supposed to do that’s a bonus!
Stunning looking hat of good quality.
Used for 1 week or less
Unfortunately this hat is too big. I took the advice of ordering a hat of 1cm larger than my head measurement. I was dubious about this but thought Decathlon would know best. I should have listened to my gut. Now I need to go through the hassle of sending it back and ordering another. This one took almost 2 weeks to arrive - my advice , go to the store and try on!
