Question Western Pleasure In Nylon

I was just wondering if it is alright to show WP in a nylon headset and breast collar?

I wouldn't.
To do well in a show, you must be as well turned out as the best of your competition.
I would use the nicest leather tack I could find, and make sure it, the horse and I were all scrupulously clean.

1 dog away from hoarderdom!

No. Most places would not be able to disqualify you for it, but the majority of judges would frown upon it. The only time nylon is really okay is in gaming classes, like barrels and poles.

I think it will depend on the level of showing. I would rather see clean nylon than ratty leather. If it is truly suppose to be about the horse it really shouldn't matter, but I know it would at bigger shows :)

Bright blue neon nylon bridle & breast collar? No, not even in lower levels.
