A Family History
For over 100 years, Charles Owen has been guided by the mission of manufacturing products for a safer world.
Now under the direction of Charles Owen’s great-grandson, the mission has remained the same while extending its reach to all parts of the globe and into a variety of equestrian disciplines.
Equestrian safety products can only protect riders if they work in real life situations. All Charles Owen helmets are tested and worn by top riders to ensure the products suit the job of riding horses.

Making a real difference in others’ lives is what drives me, like it did my father and grandfather. The values my grandfather, Charles Owen, held are well established in my DNA. The challenges that made the company flourish in his time are still very much here today: Fit, Function and Fashion. Staying true to one’s traditional values has been the secret of the company’s longevity, along with a bit hard work.
