I have yet to see a horse that didn't look good in a royal blue color. It works for mares or geldings of any age and any color. Not to mention that it's easy to find matching tack when you choose a popular color like that. Some colors like teal are hard to find and even harder to match because different companies have different shades.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Not red. Since the horse is red itself. I think that a periwinkle blue looks good on a chessie. Also a lime green

I think that a bright blue... or almost any shade of blue would look good. Lime green would also look nice :)

You know when you are a horse person when you start clicking at people to move.

This is totally unrelated to what colour would suit him. Have you got any other photos than the one in your profile? I would love to see them, I am really curious about his colour now

I looked after and rode a chestnut for a friend for a while, and we found that sarah looked good in the olive green (well I think that's what you would call it) and a light/babyish blue... But because I'm hopeless at describing colours I've uploaded some pics to show them.
