I'm not a jumper, but the blind spot isn't that big. I will have to find a pic to show you, but they access what they need to do a few strides before they get to the jump.
Color is based off of:
Skin pigment (red family or black family)
Actual hair color (as in what color(s) the hairs on the belly, neck, and rump are)
Points (this means if the ear tips, legs, muzzle, mane, and tail are darker than the coat hairs)
For example a true Bay will have:
Reddish Brown actual hair color
To qualify as a dun, a horse must exhibit a dorsal stripe, leg barrings, and a marking on the withers. (The withers markings should not be white, as this is an indication of severe saddle fit.)
For Appaloosas, and paints:
Coat patterns are based on the shape, color, and placing of the markings on the horse.
I hope this helped you, and even if your question is dumb...now you have the answer, which makes you smart.
