Charlie 1 Horse Hats to Add to Your Fit Check

The Charlie 1 Horse brand has combined art and unique style with western hats since 1978, when the company was founded by a man named Gordon in St. Joseph, Missouri. Now, the recognizable hat company is owned by Hatco with production in Garland, Texas. Charlie 1 Horse hats allow those that wear them to express their personality with a very fashion-forward style at a truly affordable price. Here are our top Charlie 1 Horse picks to add to your collection this year!

The Guardian

This beautiful turquoise straw fashion hat catches the eye every single time! With a 3 ¾” brim and a 3 ¾” crown, it offers the perfect amount of shade on these hot summer days, whether you’re at a rodeo, country music concert, shopping with the girls, or anywhere else. 

Attached to the outside ribbon band is the cutest studded butterfly pin that just adds to the quirky vibe this hat gives!

The Mexico Shore

For a summer fashion hat that is a little simpler and can tie into any outfit, check out this natural tan straw complete with a brown ribbon band with a pinched crown. This hat has a 4” crown and a 3 ¾” brim, and looks great on the beach or in arena stands!

This straw features very unique venting in an eagle shape, which really completes this look in our opinion. And, it’s super affordable at only $37!

The Ransom

The Ransom is part of Charlie 1 Horse’s Competition Collection. This is a hat that is truly versatile, as you could wear this inside or outside the arena, on the ranch, or out on the town. Wherever you wear this hat, you’ll feel comfortable representing the western lifestyle in a Charlie 1 Horse.

This hat has a 4 ¼” brim with a 4 ⅛” crown, a cattleman crease, and a gray suede ribbon band. It comes in sizes 6 ¾ through 7 ¾.

Looking Ahead to Fall and Cooler Weather

The Big Iron

This hat is a showstopper that is very unique, even amongst the rest of the Charlie 1 Horse fashion hats. This wool hat comes in a sand color, an open 5” crown and a short 3” brim. The style of this hat is very different from what you typically see anywhere, and we think it’s the perfect accessory to jazz up your outfits this fall! I mean, do you see those stunning antiqued conchos all the way around?!

The Sundance

Another colorful hat to brighten up your outfit is the Sundance, which comes in baby blue and complete with a bright yellow velvet band and a beautiful silver concho. This is a firm felt that has a 3 ¾” brim, and again is very affordable at only $95.

We love the crease in this beautiful blue hat!

The 6X Cash

Another Competition Collection hat, this felt is the perfect all-around cowgirl felt! The price tag is reasonable at $265, and it comes in two colors: Sahara and Granite. Charlie 1 Horse offers this hat in sizes 6 ¾ through 7 ⅝ with a 4” brim. This is a staple piece in every cowgirl’s closet!

While these are some of our favorite Charlie 1 Horse hats, there are so many beauties to choose from! You can check out their complete collection of unique and quality western hats at

CLN Community & Event Sponsor

Originally from Earth, Texas, a small town in the Texas panhandle, I was raised around rodeo, agriculture, and the western lifestyle. With a degree from Texas A&M University, I have found a passion for promoting the lifestyle that made me who I am today. I am an experienced writer, marketer, and event professional with a strong desire to share the stories of those in our industry. When I’m not busy seeking out ways to promote the western way of life, I enjoy following those I care about around to rodeos, hunting, and going on runs with my blue-eyed, blue-merle Australian Shepherd.
