    Her hooves are dark except for a white strip on her two hind hooves, so I'm going with black, (it is allowed at the shows I'll be doing this summer) Almost EVERYONE uses it, and even at shows where it's not allowed, some people paint the hooves the day before and then say they had a show where it was allowed the day before.

    And yes I know, I've been told this time and time again on this thread, I took my leather punch to it and now it fits much better.

    Sometimes I just get the hoof super clean and smooth and use hoof oil. I don't do hoof polish anymore (unless it's a HUGE show) because it's drying to the hoof and takes forever to come off.

    Yeah.But some shows don't allow black hoof oil. Lots of dressage, hunter and in-hand shows dont allow it, but eventing and XC your are allowed. My horse has 3 white hooves and one black, so I usually use a black tinted. But Worlsd Best Hoof Oil clear woks REALLY well. It just depends what comps you choose.
