White bandages?

I was just wondering if any of you well informed people know the reason why so many people use white bandages for dressage school and clinics and what not?

Tradition, tradition, tradition!

That's the response I got when I asked. Though I'd love to hear if it actually holds more weight than that.

I've had a few people tell me they use white bandages to draw attention to their horses leg movements. Along with the fact that its traditional and some people hold prejudices to colourful and flashy apparell. Don't know if that's a main reason or not, just what i've been told along the horsey road

Bringing attention to leg movements wouldnt be any good really cause they arent allowed in competition eh.

Pretty much the main reason and they just want to pretty up their horse.

Basically because it looks neat and pretty, but white bandages do also show off the horses movement better and of course because of tradition.

I went to one horse show without white bandages and all of the trainers came up to me and told me that I was crazy and I needed some right away. I totally don't believe that anyone _needs___ them. I was the only one at the show without them during the awards

Because everything should be white. Technically we should have white breeches, shirt, polos, saddle pad and bridle padding. When it's white it can't be dirty and we don't like dirty. Also the white polos contrast against dark surfaces or legs and make the movement easier to see.
