White saddle pad with rhinestones for shows?

Hello! I am mainly a western rider, but I also ride english. I am a self-taught jumper and I know the basics. I'm not serious about english like I am western, however. I'm not a completely suckish english rider, i'm not the best, but I'm definitely not bouncing all over the saddle like a maniac with a half-asleep horse.

I am planning on going to some very small, local shows next fall and doing crossrails and 2'3 - 2'6 oxers, just for the fun of it. It's not really serious or competitive riding up there, but we do have regulations like every thing else.
I only have a hunter green saddle pad, and I was wondering if I could get a white pad like this: but with personalized rhinestones. The rules say nothing against rhinestoned pads, actually we don't even have to have white pads. By rhinestoned I mean something like this:

So, since it's not a compeitive show at all, and we don't have any tack color restrictions, do you think it would be acceptable?

See, this is why I prefer barrels. It doesn't matter if you use tie-dyed zebra tack! Haha!

if it's a local show and you're doing the jumpers then i see no reason why a white pad with rhinestones would be a problem. jumpers tend to be more colorful and a local show is usually more accepting of "out of the norm" attire.

have fun!

those are really cute, i show in local shows and i see people just wearing polo shirts most of the time, it is perfectly fine if you use a pad with rhinestones, i would pick the white one, but i dont think they would penalize you for a color pad
