Question What color does your BUCKSKIN or DUN wear?

Have a buckskin and a smokey dun (almost grulla) that need to find colors! My saddle blankets are neutral and look bad on them! Please post your pics so I can get ideas PLEASE and THANK YOU!

I use purple on my red dun, I think it would also look great on your buckskin.


On the smokey dun have you thought of using teal? My friend had a grulla that she used teal on and it was spectacular, really brought out the blue hues.

I personally prefer black or white on a buckskin but hunter green and purple go well too.
On my dun she goes in pink & purple lol
For a grulla i'd say black, purple, or green ;)

Then there was black/baby pink:



We've rocked the navy blue:

Burgundy was a fave of ours for awhile!


Green...


And our very first color ever...light blue :)

My personal faves are the burgundy and the black/plaid looks! :) And for dressage we always go black...it looks so nice with the black points a buckskin has!

I'm thinking red or purple!
And sixlets, I tried a teal/turquoise on her and WOW!!! That was an easy choice!

I'm going to vote for Hoofprints' green - that is an amazing look on the buckskin!

One of our boarders, Cash, wears hunter green. It goes good with him. He's a darker buckskin.

Whereas another one of our boarders, Silver, is a lighter dun but wears a lime green. She looks great in it!

Her halter is lime, it's just a little faded.
I think purple looks good on Duns and buckskins(:
