Truthfully I dont' think it much matters what the color of the horse is. If it's a good mover and is built correctly for the discipline it's being shown in, it's USUALLY judged farely. Once in a while you get a judge that isnt keen on a certain breed or color, but for the most part, it's not the big a deal... I don't know that I've ever seen a palomino discriminated against in the hunt ring though...... paints, apps, drafts, arabs yes... but not a palomino....
