I have a Sorrel Paint gelding that has 4 white stockings and almost a completely white face. My color is red but with his coat being such a deep red, it probably won't be the best idea. I really want a color on him that would pop out and someone suggested trying white tack. I have NO IDEA where in the world to find white tack I've looked from Green River Horse Tack to State Line Tack and can't find any. Does anyone know of where I can go or have any suggestions as far as a good color for him? I'm not a big fan of blue and neon green is great but it's so common.
You can find white hair on hide I believe and white reins but not sure on the saddles you can also find white pads or white/ mixed color pads. I love purple/ hunter green and yellow( sometimes) on sorrel horses. I had my guy in baby blue and I liked that a lot on him as well Posted via Mobile Device
White leather quickly wears out to become a cement sort of grey and also gets very dirty...I'd avoid. Go mahogany for the saddle and use white for the saddle blanket and other stuff. Could do a mahogany bridle with white leather tassels on the bit where the cheekpiece meets the throatlash - and mahogany reins with white ends.
I have a lot of white gear and while it does get dirty quickly a bit of cheap concentrate shampoo in a bath of warm water is a great way to clean it - but it's all nylon, polyfleece or cotton. White leather saddle (or gloves) I wouldn't touch with a bargepole, primarily because the actual colour of the leather isn't white but mid-grey-green or brown and it's only covered by a thin layer of white paint. So when you even get the slightest scratch or rub it is very noticeable.
