What color western tack looks good on a bay?

So I just got this little guy, and I'm planning on showing him this summer.. He has absolutely no white on him at all, just black socks.. And I'm talking colors for boots, saddle blankets. Anything.. Please don't just say every color looks good, please give me specific colors! Thanks!

Well I always liked the look of classic white on a dark horse, just looks clean and really professional imo. But honestly lots of colors would look good, I just like to keep it uniform, like white boots with a white show pad, or red boots with a red saddle pad, or purple with purple, ect. I dunno if that made any sense LOL... oh well I tried.

Btw he is one cute pony with a sweet expressive face :) (and I'm only mildly jealous of the property he's on hehe)

I like that shade of red on him. I'd go with something more subdued, red shades (orange), or maybe hunter green. He's not a horse I'd put bright pink on lol. As a western rider I wouldn't do white. It would look nice for dressage or something but I think a little tacky for western and will get dirty easily!
Do you do barrels or games? Or just trail ride/leisure?

Just wanted to add, he is technically brown so you can probably expect some color changes with him.

I ride western, do barrels, bout to start my new filly on reining and cowhorse events next year. I think lavender would be cute on him. I don't have a bay or brown horse but my sorrel gelding rocks the lime green and my dunskin filly sports purple lol. Although for showing my gelding I use white leg wraps and boots just because he has 4 white stockings and he pulls it off nice.

IMHO, generally speaking, warmer hued horses like chestnuts, bays, and some palominos/buckskins/browns, generally look better in the colder colors like green, blue, purple, and some can even pull off gray.

There are some warm colored horses that can do well in oranges and reds and yellows, but many don't.

I think he would look dashing in an emerald green.

Yeah I wouldn't go for a "bright" red or yellow or something. I think darker red hues would look good, no bright for this guy :)

Dark red, dark purple, dark green IMO.
We always showed my moms bay mare in purple.
