Bold, Black Legs
Does your horse have black legs? Here’s how to maximize their beauty in four easy steps.
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. When used correctly, colorenhancing sprays can sharpen your horse’s appearance, as well as conceal stains, scars, and blemishes that take away from the pretty picture. Enhancing a horse’s black points is permissible at AQHA- and APHA-sanctioned events; however, it’s illegal to alter a horse’s color by covering up a coronet band or white sock or stocking.
