Solid AP for local show

My friend and I are going to a local horse show to compete. It's not a serious show..they just require the proper riding boots but I plan on wearing a nice pair of breeches,paddock boots,and a show shirt that my mom has
Anyways my question is should I have a solid color pad or can it be any kind of pad..should it be a fitted pad or an AP pad?

Using a standard fitted white pad might give you an edge. Even if it isn't required, it would make you look more turned out, and judges like that. But if you do go with an AP, I'd pick a solid color that isn't too bright, maybe a hunter green or navy blue, something that won't scream "look at me!" unless you want them to see every little error you make. They wouldn't be able to help having their eye drawn to a bright color or pattern, and that's not always a good thing.
