Nose piercings and riding...

Hey guys,

Do any of you have nose piercings? I really want a little stud in my nose but I don't know how it would work with riding. Anyone ever had a problem with it? Do you have to take them out for competition? How bad did it hurt?

I have one :)
It's never caused a problem with me at all.
I don't have to take it out or anything.

When they go to do it, it's just a quick little pinch, but it's quite worth it :)

Thanks Possum!

I was hoping it would be. I can't get one until after my competition at the tail end of October because I'm pretty sure all piercings have to be taken out in eventing.

I want one so bad! I'm excited!!!

My best friend has her nose pierced. She has to take it out at State level comps but everything else is fine, and it hasn't been any kind of issue.

Alright. Good to know!

I've checked the USEA rulebook and it doesn't say anything about piercings. So I'm assuming I'd be allowed to just wear a little stud?

Shouldn't be an issue for riding, hurts real bad getting it done though lol!

Does it really? :(

How bad on a scale of papercut to stabbing? Haha

Well I've never been stabbed LOL so I can't really gauge that.. but I will say I used to have both my lip and my nose pierced and the nose hurt 20x more than the lip!

Wahhhh :(

Oh well I think it'll be worth it. Though I probably won't think that when I'm sitting there crying.

It's over pretty quickly though. Just make sure you go to a reputable place, when I got it done not only did it hurt like heck but to make it worse, the lady couldn't get the ring in (I had wanted a metal one) so she had to make like 5 attempts and finally gave up and used a plastic one. It caused a big growth to grow around the piercing inside my nose and I couldn't breath out of that nostril! So I took it out and the bump took a few months to recede.

As long as you don't have an experience like mine, it will be over fairly quickly and then you'll have a nose piercing! Lol
