I do love riding in that black Stubben. Its the heaviest saddle I've ever lifted onto a horse, and I thought it would be too much between me and my horse's back, but actually it has an excellent close contact-type feel. Looks like it is black for me! Now for the matching black Stubben bridle. Ack! The money is flying out the door!

I would never show in black tack in the hunter ring...then again I wouldn't ever buy a black huny coat either but apparently now they are in style.

I have a dapple Grey as well and the brown looks awful. I'm hoping for a black saddle for Christmas!

Most of the time a judge should not drop you a placing on the color of your tack. It is purely aesthetic as long as it is of good quality and well maintained. Most of the time you don't see people using black hunt seat equipment. The brown is more traditional and right now the lighter colored browns such as chestnut or caramel are in style. My sister had a black huntseat saddle of very good quality made in England and the seat faded on it big time. It turned to almost an olive green and did not leave the saddle very attractive looking. She bought a new light colored brown saddle when she started showing on the breed circuit.
