    Exactly. I have had the same experience. I just don't get it.

    I don't think it is the black color as much as the quality of leather and the method of tanning/dyeing that makes a difference.

    What if you own a black horse? There is a pair of CWD EquiFit open front boots on Ebay right now. They are a great price because they are black, not brown. I own a black horse and thought they would look good on him, but I hesitate to buy because they are black and I am used to brown tack.

    I have some black horses, and I like brown on them. Imo it makes their black look blacker whereas the black on a black doesn't look so good to me.

    Most equifit boots are black. I don't think anyone will look askance.
