I agree with what has been said above. It really doesn't matter. It's not like you are showing...

Vented! I could not imagine not having a vented helmet mid summer. Either that or rig up a fan to point right at your head. Now that would be nice. Just not very fasionable. Well....you could start a trend.

JDI, I'm with you. Who gives a pooper what helmet you wear. No matter how well or poor you ride, a helmet isn't goin to make a difference what-so-ever.

Id dress for comfort...you don't want any excuse for having a bad ride when testing horses. Wear the helmet that fits the best.

On a side note...I've never been able to get the Troxels to fit me properly...so I wear a non vented helmet all the time...even in the triple digit Texas summers.

Ah, people that do give a flying flip what people wear then?

Might I remind you what the Canadian showjumping team wore to the olympics:


...eewwwww!!!



Okay in all seriousness, if you are concerned about your appearance, then go full show, and wear your CO. Wear show breeches, and a very nice shirt. Make sure everything is tucked in and go with a belt to, a la GM :)
