Proper hunter attire should always be the norm, even in open shows.
No colored pads or wraps. Save the colored stuff for hacking or trail riding.
Yes, the colors are cute. No, they're not proper attire for the hunt ring, regardless of how many other people use them.
I'm a snob when it comes to acceptable turn out for shows. If you're serious about riding and showing in a particular discipline, you should always have the proper attire.
