Lots of racehorses wear white bridles. You'd be hardpressed to find a white saddle.

Look for biothane. Comes in lots of colors and wipes clean easily.

Yeah, my favourite ever racehorse Sunline ran in a white bridle throughout her career - very distinctive! Although I do think they look best on dark bays/browns or young greys, where there's some contrast. They're all synthetic so a lot easier to clean and they won't get the same wear marks that white leather does (although they do tend to look a bit shiny sometimes).

There really needs to be a (free! ) computer program where you can choose the coat colour, build and approximate markings of your horse and then test out all different colours of tack on them! Almost tempted to create one myself...only spare time is nonexistent at the moment

Not all are synthetic, my Great-uncle's are leather. I saw a bay racer that had a teal biothane bridle once. You could see him all the way to the backstretch in that thing! Sooooo pretty!

Interesting, never seen a leather one over here, all the ones I've seen are PVC. I must assume that's because it's is much easier to care for than leather and doesn't use structural stitching (so won't break when they're having a silly moment), because PVC has a higher density than leather and is therefore heavier for the same amount of material (and obviously the lighter the better with gear!).

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.
I've PMd you links of whats used on the track. Its biothane just as people have said. But I included links to a horse tack website that carries it as well as several EBay links.

Now that I think back to it... my great uncle had white bridles for his draft horses to wear in the in hand classes. Possibly when hitched as well, though I can't remember. I do know that he had them for sure for the in hand.

I'd think for white biothane would be the way to go. I have a yellow bridle, breast collar, halter & reins set and when it gets dirty (all the time) I just use a baby wipe to clean it and it is good as new.

Taylored Tack is where I got mine and she makes it in white as well as a ton of other colors.
