Pads in Dressage competition
OK, folks... After responding in thread about noseband I started reading through other rules and now am puzzled with the pad one. The book is saying:
"1. An English type saddle with stirrups is compulsory for U.S. Equestrian and USDF tests. A Dressage saddle with stirrups is compulsory for FEI tests. Saddle pads are optional, but should be white or of conservative color. While present in the competition area and during prize giving ceremonies, the name and/or logo of the individual's sponsor(s) may appear on a surface area not exceeding 200 cm2 on each side of the saddle cloth. Breed logos (for horses registered with that breed), national flags (for citizens of that country), and business/farm names or logos (used with permission of farm/business owner) are also permitted and must have the same specifications as sponsor logos. No other advertisement or publicity is permitted on saddle cloths or horses."
So what is considered to be conservative color? And what is breed logo?
