INTERNATIONAL RIDING HELMETS, INC. is a tradition that evolved from a family that has been in the riding industry for four decades. in the early fifties, Angelo Plastino began making riding caps, which were sold by major department stores and a handful of specialty retail shops. He also designed riding caps for members of the royal family, statesmen and other prominent equestrians.
Early in the seventies Angelo’s son, Frank, joined the business. As time passed and the sport of riding evolved, Frank became convinced that issues such as safety would be driving the industry. In 1986 he founded International Riding Helmets, Inc. to meet the changing needs with new initiatives in product engineering.
In January of 2021, Frank combined IRH helmets and Intec Performance Gear into one company under the name of IRH.
We love that IRH provides top quality helmets and meets all ASTM/SEI certified safety requirement. They are fashionable with modern styling and comfortable with removable and washable liners.
