:( I'm sorry I don't know how to put photos up from my phone. My grulla mare wears black and purple. HorsePoorn where on earth did you find Sage's halter? I want one!!!!! Hahaha. Blaize just has a black halter and purple 12' line coz I can't find halters like yours. I also adore the turquoise and you have given me that color choice I never thought of coz I am already trying to think of colors for he foals that will suit but a color I don't already have. (each horse has it's own color as I have 5horses lol) please post pic when you try that burnt orange too!!!! She is a beautiful mare!!!!

Royal blue. I go with blue for pretty much everything because it works for both genders and I have yet to find a horse color that doesn't look good in it.

Unfortunately, this is one of the few pictures I have of my Dad's buckskin with my saddle/pad on him. The pad was really dirty so the color seems a bit washed out.


The one time I've had Jesse under saddle, the only pad color I had was hunter green and red. He looked pretty good in it, though not as good as he would have in blue.

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/

I sure am loving all these beautiful ponies!

HorsePoor - what kind of blanket is that? I love it! I'm totally sold on the turquoise for my grulla... she is still a baby and kind of dun-ish in this summer sun (but she was dark silver in winter), but when she grows out of her baby hair I hope she looks just like yours!!!!!

Smrobs - I have my sorrel decked out in blue and my buckskin looks great in it... I just like variety in my horse diet!

Hey Smrobs... this is off topic, but I see both pics you use a mohair cinch. Do they really help a sensative horse as much as I have seen advertised?

Actually, the first pic (with the blue) is a Merino wool cinch, though the second is a mohair. I do like them and they seem to be more consistent with stopping galls but I've yet to find anything that works great on all horses.

I have always used a neoprene Smart Cinch, but my mare doesn't like it, she gets cinchy. Rode her in a fleece and she was fine with that but it only lasted about a dozen rides before it started falling apart. (Not made for the ruggid terrain type riding like we do I guess!) I'm gonna try a mohair on her. Thanks for the response!

I did use red on my grulla gelding, but I currently have him in raspberry. He looks stunning in it!
