I agree with nrhareiner.

I show my mare in white because it emphasizes how much "action" she has. I school and run barrels on her in pink, purple, or star boots however. The white is strictly reserved for shows.



Here she is in polo wraps (And turned bell boots, grr), but I definitely prefer white I discovered after showing her the first couple times in them. Black makes her look choppy.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I suggest not using anything bright for reining because it can appear tacky:)

Same thing I have been told by two trainers I know who are also judges. Just draws attention to the movement of the horses legs more than other colors (unless your horse is white!)....unless your horse can plus a turn-why draw attention to it!

You mean color of boots? You can always wrap them in polos-that is how they keep the white ones white until they get in the pen.....

I wish that was the issue...

I can't find a horse to put the wraps on

Truth be told I would probably just purchase SMB boots that would be "Show only" reserved because I just suck with polo wraps!

As far as keeping white boots white...

We never warmed up horses in white boots. They wore different boots for warm up, then right before the gate boots were changed to white ones, sweat was cleaned up, mane brushed, tail let out and brushed and an all-over spray of Pepi. As soon as the horse came out of the ring-white boots taken off and tail put back up. Then white boots were washed as not to stain.
