Showing Question.....

Ok so in western classes I see lots of people that show in color coordinated tack. But in english it seems more refined and the horses usually just have white saddle pads and no leg wear etc. Is it only in western classes that are allowed color??? I showed once at a schooling show in all purple tack. Would that count against me.

Locally I don't see it being a problem, but in bigger shows like breed shows that's look down upon. More and more people are getting more about "color and bling" in the english world its coming up slowly but as of right now its not the "in" thing.

Ohh could you imagine English saddles with silver?! That might be kind a cool!

Lady - I've seen both that the shows here, color coordinated and not. I think both look great but some of the breed shows don't seem to be as color coordinated as the open ones.

Good luck!

Ohh I wasnt refering to silver english saddles/bridles. Mostly saddle pads and leg wear etc. Like instead of white saddle pads with your white shirt and black/blue jacket it would be say a blue saddle pad with a blue shirt with or without jacket.

I was responding to Delete's post about English 'bling'.

I was trying to think how you would do it!

Do you have pictures of your show outfit? Purple is my fave color. I finally found a draft horse halter in purple. Love, love, love it!

In a jumper class, you could wear coordinating wraps and saddle pad, but its not for a hunter class. No boots or wraps for any HUS class.
