Safety Vests

Do you wear a safety vest for showjumping? I have to wear one, my mom says I wear one or i cant show...

I have seen alot of people wear them. I have never worn a show jacket for showjumping though (It has always been optional and it is always hot!). So do you wear the vest under or over?

Thanks

i don't for showjumping but i do for hunter paces though most people don't. to me HPs are just about the same as eventing - with in some case more obstacles and miles to cover and just as dangerous so i wear one even when my barn is the only team at the pace with them on!

Not for show jumping, just for cross country! However a lot of the events around here that are held in one day have stadium and XC 20 minutes apart and ask that you come to stadium dressed for cross country. So then of course I wear one.

if you are wearing your show jacket you can get a black vest and wear it over your jacket. that is what ive seen people doing anyways and it looks fine.
