I am feeling so paranoid about this right now. Everywhere I look qhs at the circuit shows are being ridden in brown tack, however I switched over to black tack for my horse and will have to use the same tack for the mare that I will be showing english. Is black tack just uncommon, or is it super frowned upon? :?

I don't show but I would think that they are judging horse and rider not the tack....:wink:

I know that they are suppose to judge horse and rider, however sometimes tie breaks come down to tack and appearance. Plus we all know the politics of horse shows...

The AQHA circuit is definitely a fad driven circuit as far as tack and dress but I've seen all colors and brands of tack out there. I think you'll be fine in black tack. Just keep it clean and present yourself well...

You should be fine in black tack, I looked up some pictures/results from congress and World in 2009 to see if there were any black tack goes and I foudn this: (couldn't find any world pics that were not fuzzy)
2009 AQHA Congress HUS Futurnity Open Finals (1st place)Horse: Skys Blue Eyes
2009 AQHA Congress HUS Futurnity LTD Finals (1st-place)Horse:Skys Blue Eyes
2009 AQHA Congress Youth HUS 12-14yrs Place: UnknownHorse: Looks like Sky, but Sky wasn't listed in the placings.
2009 AQHA Congress Youth 12-14 Hunt Seat Eq Finals(It seems like darker leather to black is popular amoungs lighter horses)

It does seem there are some dark oil/black bridles out there but hard to tell with some of the saddles. Hope this helps :D There was a winner at congress with in the least a black bridle :p
