Okay, I know this is a very minor detail, but I wanted the opinion of those who have shown Hunters or Equitation a lot:
Is it ... acceptable / the norm / trendy / horrifying ... to use BLACK stirrup pads in your irons for showing (mainly equitation)?
I have two pairs of Sprenger jointed irons that need new pads. They both have black rubber covering the joints. I kind of want to get black pads to match, but I'm used to seeing white pads for show.
Sprenger's pads are like $10 (not the usual buck-fifty), so I thought I'd research a little before I go buy a bunch of pairs. =) Thanks!
