It probably depends on the material that is used for the lime green. The noseband in the above picture is...8? Years old...and still looks as bright as it did when I purchased it.

Ohhh..I would almost go with white..Oh! I know what would look great! The new Classic Equine Black Lace boots..mix a combo of black and white together and you'd look sharp..and classy.. Black saddle pad, Black Lace boots, black and white reins..



This is actually what I'm thinking about doing with my black mare..

Why pick one colour? Go with plaid

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.

It's nylon, but has some type of coating over the top of it. So it doesn't feel like "clothy nylon" it's more of a "stiff nylon" Not sure what the exact name of it is. I've actually never cleaned it either, but it's used at shows only and my horses are usually washed before shows. LoL.

DR, I LOVE those boots! But they'd never be the same after the first time of wearing them. I'd never want to use them because they'd get dirty so quickly!

Me too!! They are so awesome..and really you could throw any color bell boot with that and make it louder...I would definitely go with those, it would look super classy and neat..It's a look that will last a long time too.

I have a secret for that! I'm a professional boot cleaner lol...Oxyclean is my friend or the car interior cleaner.. I have the Professional's Choice giraffe boots and they still look like they did when I first got them 2 years ago. Just make sure you clean them off after every show and wash them and you'll be good...The best trick for washing tack EVER is the pressure washer or to take all of it to the big car wash places with the spray nozzle things..Soak the tack in cleaner then pressure wash it off. Looks brand new when you're done.
