A lighter colored palomino will look good in just about any color, because any color will show up well!

I'm just a sucker for turquoise in general, so that would be my pick.

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

Well....seen as I'm an!....I'm going to give my opinion in terms of color opposites.....These colors are opposites, so they POP against each other:
(this is how I like to match things up nice)

Yellow tones (palomino, perlino, cremellos) = purples, the lighter the horse - the lighter the shade of purple
Red tones (rich chestnuts/sorrels and blood type bays) = greens, again the lighter the horse the lighter the shade
Orange tones (light chestnuts/washed out bays) = blues, again the lighter the horse the lighter the shade
Black horses = these guys can wear anything! (bar white, not a fan of white though!)
'White' horses: anything neutral or washed through with white, ie. light colors
(I used the term 'white' horses in terms of visual, not genes)
Roaned horses: again go with the base coat color and dilute the color of tack to match nice, ie. red roan who is greying out I'd used a neutral saddle pad with green tones in it.

Essentially, I like to match the intensity of a horses color with the intensity of the color of the tack. Ie, strong color horse = strong color tack in a color opposite

Did that make sense???

As for the 'fluorescent' colors....they don't count! No such thing as a fluorescent horse!

Nope..and it irritates me. I wanted a burnt orange for Lark and couldn't find it anywhere.. Boo.

I like dark colors on light horses and visa versa.. Go with a dark purple.

I like red on palominos. Turquoise or any color of blue looks good on any color. The dark purple does look nice as well.
