In the summer time, do you put a fly mask to ride? Is it allowed to keep it in the show arena?

I always turn them out with fly masks and in summer we ride in fly nets for the ears 😊 I don't like to ride in them because I can't compete in them so it can distract the horse when you take it off 😊
I always put one at home, we have a lake close to the arena so there are a lot of flies in summer... it keeps them more concentrated :) You can put a fly mask in the paddock while at a show, put you have to take it off in the arena!
I do! There're soooo many flies here when it's hot, I prefer to put a mask so my horse does not get irritated.
