I have a vest. If Vega's feeling fresh, i wear one. The next time i ride Gem, i'm wearing one. I also plan on wearing one when i start jumping Vega.

In riding a horse we borrow freedom

I don't, but I don't see anything wrong having extra-protection with unknown horses (especially greenies).

Yeah I usually where one every time I ride no matter what I do. I took a nasty fall about three years ago and landed right on top of a jump, it was a miracle that I didn't break my back.

Now with my youngster, it's not worth it to me NOT to wear it.

Although, in this 90 degree weather I will admit I haven't worn it in a couple of days. He's been pretty calm though. *knock on wood*
