Hi Alexis,

Usually you can show with white or black gloves. White gloves show all the movement with your hands so I wouldn’t recommend them if you don’t have quiet or soft hands. Black gloves also look nice and don’t show much hand movement. I honestly think white gloves look better for turnout but not if your hands can’t stay still.

Hope this helps :)
That Looks nice 😛
In my rules- USDF. You can show in black or white. But if you have good/steady hands wear white; if you dont have the best or you do a right,left,right,left type thing to get your horse round. Wear black. They stand out less.
It depends on where about you live because some competitions will tell you what equipment or clothing items you will need for it so it really depends on where abouts you are

Hi
In lots of countries you can wear only white gloves for dressage competitions and I think it should be like that cause you see every move of riders hands better than in black gloves and it looks really good tbh :)
Hi Alexis
I think white gloves look great and just add a final touch and where I am you can show in black gloves but it might be different where you are
