So I am saying that, at least for the shows here, you won't see anyone wearing them openly in the hunters.
Here you go, Oxer. I think this rule pretty much says what I said. You can wear it and they can not penalize you for it.
The rules do not allow me to copy and paste but you can see them Here
Here is my attempt to type what it says:
Any exhibitor may wear protective headgear (ASTM/SEI) and/or protective safety vest, specifically designed for use in equestrian sport in any division or class with out penalty from the judge. The Federation recommends that the vest meet or surpass the current ASTM standard or be certified by the Safety Equipment Institute.
