Rich, black leg mark­ings ac­cen­tu­ate an al­ready­pol­ished turnout. As an AQHA, APHA, NSBA, and NRHA judge, I can say that touch­in­gup your horse’s black stock­ings doesn’t nec­es­sar­ily earn ex­tra points on my score card, but it demon­strates that you’ve made ex­tra ef­fort to give the best pre­sen­ta­tion pos­si­ble. The en­vi­able, ebony look isn’t solely achieved through good groom­ing and bathing.
