Colorful pads in English classes

When did they become popular?? I must of missed this fun train because when I was showing unless I was jumping I had a simple white fleece pad. Someone I am going to a show with has this really colorful coral pad she does flat classes in.

I think I am to chicken because I just ordered another white fleece pad lol

Yeah, when I was doing Flat Shows *gag* white was the only acceptable color. Whether they were fitted or square - white was only permitted.

The only time we were allowed to go with colors, was when I was Eventing, or in the Show Jumping Ring.

I am no longer involved with Flat Shows - so I haven't seen colored pads in the show ring.

I see colored pads all the time though at my barn for lessons and schooling - but since it is primariy a Hunter/Jumper barn that is very involved with the LMHJA circuit, when they show, they are only in white.

Myself, since I am an Eventer - I'm all about colors.

Unless you're a pro representing a product or going into a jumper class in an unrecognized show I wouldn't venture into the colorful pads. Keep them for trail rides or schooling.

Why not doing Jumpers in a recognized show? I see it all the time - there's nothing wrong with having a colored pad in the Jumper Ring - recognized or not.

Its fine in the jumper ring...but never in the hunter ring or the equitation ring. Its points off and unattractive. Save them for when you're schooling at home. That's what I do(:

Hmm... I haven't seen any of that around here. We always used write without question... Which is why I love my competitive trail. Colors are welcome.

My daughter has a really fun pad (fuchsia w/ the green 4H emblem on the side)I think that would be a fun pad for her 4H fun show, but for the Round Up show we are sticking to the white pad. I don't really go to alot of rated shows but there are few in my area and I have never seen anything else but white.

I think colourful pads are fine here as long as there a solid colour.

I see a lot of colored pads in the jumper ring, not so many (or any) in the hunter/eq ring. The kids at our barn love schooling in the brightest craziest colored pads they can find....
