Ear bonnets?

Hi
Is it ok to use Ear bonnets in XC, Show Jumping, and dressage? My XC color is yellow, and I have a matching bonnet.
I would use the same one for SJ, as my colors are yellow and green.
And how about Dressage? Never seen anyone use one but Sheena is sensitive to bugs so...
What do you think? To bonnet or not to bonnet?
Thanks

I would definitely not bonnet in dressage. As it is supposed to show how willing and concentrative the horse is and ear bonnets would give the impression that Sheena doesn't listen once there is bugs around her ears. XC, I don't see why not......
Actually, you can get ear plugs for horse, you can't see them and they are safe.
I love Sheena BTW

I don't know if it would be okay in dressage, never seen it before.
Maybe ask a coach or something or even ring up the show organisers and ask, explain why you need them.
XC and SJ should be fine though, I want to get a pair for my horse as well in XC and SJ just so the wind doesn't bother him and because they look cool :P
