Hunters are still white fleece, but jumpers are getting a little more accepting of colored pads, according to most of what I've seen and heard. Not neons so much (unless the show is tiny), but solid "normal" colors or conservative patterns with contrast piping type of pads. I'm paranoid, and even if I showed jumpers I'd stick with plain white out of fear.

psst; somebody please tell me what color Havana is?

Thank you in advance! I hate dumb human rules about what the horse's tack colors must be in competitions. What simply looks good is of interest to me, & I agree also with RidrGirl that black tack & white pad on a black horse looks sharp!

I honestly think that black horses look good in just about anything. It is kinda like a black pair of pants that will match with any shirt. The only black horse that I have ever had the honor of riding is my Perch, John. My saddle is kindof a dark brown and I thought he looked pretty darn good in it.

This is a havana saddle: Event Saddle - Pessoa Legacy Event XCH-AMS Dark Havana Saddle
The shade can vary from brand to brand, but basically dark brown. The brown preference in hunters is a product of the tradition behind the "discipline". That makes a lot more sense to me than the current vendetta against dark tack in WP.

Smrobs, that is one handsome Perch!

I agree with smrobs, blacks tend to look good in any color. I have two differant saddles that I have used for my black mare. One was a dark oil saddle and another was a med oil one. And I once tried my friend's light oil saddle on her too after our ride (I was bareback), but it was much too big on her. I think I have a pic of it...... Here are my saddles, they both look good on her, though if I could, I would love to have all black tack. I saw someone on this forum that has a black horse and black tack and it looked really sharp. Maybe it was Cloudsmystique..? I don't remember... anyway, here are pics!!

Thank you so much...I'm starting to think that once I get my pad on, all will be well. I do have another question though...when showing in English classes, is it preferable that your bridle match your saddle? I"m just wondering if I should buy a bridle in the same HORRIBLE color as my saddle.
