Yep, that's the norm. I know, horse fashion doesn't always make sense. I remember I was telling a mom of one of my students what colors she needed to buy for her daughter and she (who owned a high end fashion store) was very confused.... "black helmet, black, boots and.... NAVY jacket??" I had a tack store actually call me because another mom went to buy her daughter a saddle and insisted that she wanted a black one so it would match her boots! Thank goodness the store called me (I have a good relationship wtih them), my hunter student almost came home with a dressage saddle because it was "prettier"!
