I can't sell DD's old riding hat, can I?

Bought DD a new hat yesterday, to replace one which never really fitted her properly (1/4in too small, so uncomfy rather than unsafe). It honestly looks like new, but she's fallen off twice while wearing it, once onto her head (indoor school, soft surface).

I shouldn't sell it, or give it away, even as "buyer beware", should I?

And there's no way to find out whether it's still sound or not?

No. You shouldn't use it again after a fall anyway. Bin it.

Of course you should not sell it and you should have replaced it after every fall.

Thank you, just needed a bit of a slap. It's so frustrating, it doesn't look like it's been worn, let alone damaged! I might just go and throw it out of an upstairs window a few times. wink

You should send it back to the manufacturer as they like to have old hates back for research and development, especially as your daughter has fallen off whilst wearing the hat

Often the damage to hats is internal. If it's been fallen on, then it is not safe. Sorry.
