Question Is there a reason for jump poles to be striped?

My mum said she thought it was something to do with the horse being able to see it better. But I thought it was just traditional.
This all started when I said I wanted to paint my new jump poles all white.
So is there a reason?

It depends on what color they are whether or not they can see it better. But just plain white is fine ! People just like interesting jumps/cool colored jumps

Yeah that's what I thought, at the stables I jump spotty ones, striped ones and plain ones

They look cool, unless you're the one who has to repair & repaint a whole course every 6 months/yr haha

I stripe most of my poles in very scary colors so that the ones at competitions will look easy...or at least less scary

I usually just use a tarp or blanket over a jump to make it look scary !

For looks, and it's easier to judge the center of a pole (ie the center of a jump) when you have marks spelling it out for you.
