Fans of CBC’s Heartland will be wanting a new riding helmet this Christmas. The star of Canada’s longest running drama series, Amber Marshall, has collaborated with Resistol RideSafe to create the Amber Marshall Safety Helmet. For western riders out there this is a must-have; not only does the helmet satisfy all ASTM safety standards and SEI regulations, its cowboy hat shape ensures a chic bit of shade, too.
“I am very fortunate to be able to work with horses not only on screen, but in my everyday life as well,” stated Marshall. “Horses have been a passion of mine since I was very young and working on the set of Heartland has allowed me to gain a following with the riding community. I have always felt strongly about safety around horses and believe the western world needs to have a greater awareness of protecting ourselves. It is my hope that by combining the western look and the highest safety standards available, this is a no-brainer! (no pun intended)!”
Resistol has been producing cowboy hats in Garland, Texas since 1927 and has a vast collection of traditional felt and straw hats as well as the safety helmet. Other popular collections include those inspired by country music superstars George Strait and Jason Aldean.
The Amber Marshall Safety Helmet is available in straw or black felt, and is designed for all equestrian sports and made with high-density, high-impact foam and a rigid ABS shell. The felt or straw hat’s brim is shapeable to suit your unique style. A separate travel case can be purchased as well so that your hat stays show-ready.
The Amber Marshall Safety Helmet is sold exclusively online at RMG Outfitters. For a limited time, orders will include an Amber Marshall magazine and signed photo of the star.
