I think you're over thinking things, and making a mountain out of a molehill :) And I find it hard to believe that you're the only one with a colored pad, for CC at Events.
In stadium, you should be in a white pad or black pad - so that's understandable, but CC - who cares what color you are.
I love your pad, go for it - regardless if you are doing Prelim or not. If you don't want it, I'll take it :)
I have seen all ranges of colors and horse names - from BN to 3*. So what! I see colors from Hot Pinks, to Oranges, to Reds, to Blues in the Professional World - go with whatever you want.
It isn't about what color of pad you have, or what the name of your horse is - it is about your performance and your ability to proove yourself competative wise. Not color wise.
