Oh, I was just thinking of going with a classic white saddle pad in the show ring. I didn't know you could use different color pads with english classes in the show ring now...when I used to show back in 100 BC it was classic white only....You can REALLY show with colored pads in english classes now??
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.
