What helmet should I wear?

I am going to try out horses next week in FL, and I don't know what helmet I should use. I have my CO Hampton Hat for showing, and it is alot nicer! Then I have my Troxel schooling helmet, it is black, but it is kinda scratched up, so which should I use?

As long as it is ASE certified... it doesnt matter... unless you are going for looks.

In FL right now, I'd go with a vented schooling helmet. It's hot out there right now, and humid.

yea I live here, definitely go with the vented, anyone who rides here would completely understand y you would be wearing the vented schooling helmet. Most people I know any way only wear the nice helmets when theyre showing, and wears the schooling helmets all the rest of the time.

Agreed. Are you trying to make an impression on the sellers?
Personally, as a seller, as long as the client comes well dressed with appropriate clothing (boots with heel, helmet) I'm good to go.

As long as it is a certified helmet, you are just fine. I wouldn't make a set decision on a certain helmet until you actually try a few. Chances are it might not fit you the way you wish it did.

Go out to your local tack store and try out a few that are within your price range

Technically it doesn't matter since they're both approved. I personally try to look my best and more professional when I go to another barn (but that's just me). I would choose the CO but be thinking about my much cooler troxel. :) so which would you rather? Look more professional or be more comfortable?

Just out of curiosity... do people really care what kind of helmet you wear?
