In honor of the upcoming Riders4Helmets International Helmet Awareness Day, check out this one-of-a-kind lid showcase.

Our source? The Internet’s one-stop-shopping destination for all things random: Etsy, of course.

Let’s kick off the freak show with this English Riding Helmet Topiary that would look smashing in any home or office…

And then we start getting into the weirdy stuff. Like this Moschell Riding Head Piece, a steal at just $725. The description reads: “A coveted treasure. This thick, red, felt, vintage riding cap was taken to the heights of head couture as I adorned it with huge German glass doll eyes, paint, a rare mix of feathers, a silky ponytail extension attached with scraps from a favourite old shirt covered with vintage pins and then … REAL horse teeth! A one of a kind creation.”

Five words: What. Would. George. Morris. Say?

The end. Microphone drop. Walking away. Can’t beat that, not gonna try.

ThinLine pads can’t stop you from blowing $725 on the most disturbing riding helmet ever, but they WILL keep you and your horse performing at your best. ThinLine pads use non-compression technology to dissipate impact and pressure, creating a more comfortable riding experience for you and your horse.
