Do you use the type that goes over the rider as well, or just the horse?
I would walk and trot in them outside on a windy day. I seem to recall that I had a strap that went under the tail to hold it down a little. If it was REALLY windy that I think I maybe would turn around and hold it down!
So trotting in an arena should present no problem at all.
On type, for me I never found one in the keyhole style that anabel describes that fitted but my mare was on the broad side. Whatever fits works, and if you are going to take it off after warming up then the sort that goes under the saddle wouldn't be any good.
