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.

Well....seen as I'm an artist...lol!....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.
