Can protective boot be colors?
Can protective boots be colors other than black, white, or brown when showing in a reining event?
I haven seen skid boots in many colors so I'm taking front boots. What is and isn't allowed in protective gear? Lol :lol:
Or does it depend on which events your running?
I'm just thinking while dreaming of my future reining horse! I like horse shopping, and like taking my time looking, and I don't want to fall in love with the first horse I see... And my budget makes shopping a bit harder..... But I still cannot wait to go out and have some fun! :-(
I do not believe there is any rule in reining where the horse boots have to be a certain color, or that you even have to wear boots at all.
However, I would say that the STYLE right now is white boots, because that's what you see the pro's using.
That's what I thought.... I also figure I could use colored boots but I'm really going to stick out... So my horse and I better bring our A game or else that attention won't be such a good thing....lol
There is no set rule on color however there is a rule of thumb. If your horse is a nice mover/good turns you use white if not so much you use black.
I've seen youths with coloured boots, but even then they stick with navy, hunter green, etc.
I think black, white or brown boots (depending on horse's colour) look much cleaner.
White is classy;)
I say use all the color you want!! .... at home :wink:
Good to know about the movement and the black and white thing, totally makes sense now that I think about it!
Are the white boots super hard to keep clean? I look at them in the tack shop and think, hmmm.... Nothing else at the barn stays white for more than roughly 3.5 minutes, soooo.... I do love how they look though. I have thought, also, could white theoretically keep the tendons cooler than black or another dark color?
