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.
