Helmet: Velvet or no?

For my early birthday present, my mom drove me an hour to Big Dee's and I picked out a new helmet, I ended up getting an IRH:


And I bought a velvet helmet cover while I was there. I'm going to be doing some showing this year and was wondering when to wear the cover and when to just wear the helmet. I'll do dressage, hunters, eventing, and jumping, all locally.

The actual helmet is better as it is about looks as well as performance and a cover doesn't look as good as the real thing.

No cover at all. Ride in the helmet as is.

Yep, as is. I only like the velvet cover if your using a plastic helmet, and that's only sometimes.
