I was thinking about getting a black close contact saddle. I though that not only would it look cool, but then I could have a black bridle that I can use for both dressage and jumping. So ultimately, less tack I have to own= more money saved.
BUT I'm wondering... is black tack acceptable in the hunter and equitation rings?
I'm going to start doing jumping shows next summer (instead of just dressage), and I'd like to try out hunters, jumpers, and equitation to see what I like best. I don't want to have the wrong tack, especially since I hear Hunters and Equitation shows are are rather picky.
Thanks in advance for your opinions!
