No. You'll need tan breeches.

Unless it's dressage. Then you have to wear white breeches.

Dang... could I ask why they would sell black then?

Because people school or hack in them. You just can't show in them.

You can school/hack in whatever you want, but when it comes to shows, its tradition all the way. It gives the more professional, clean look they like to see.

I have only heard 'Light Colored' Breeches for Hunters. Can't you use white in Hunters too? I know no black. I wear tan, because white for me is like water and gasoline - bad idea xD
