Try posting a picture of him, or a horse that is similar in color :) I'm usually really good with matching colors. Cowboy is a chestnut and he looks good in purple lol. And most bays look good in orange, or teal :3

I say white and black. Always looks classy! White leg wraps and saddle pad. Black saddle and bridle.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

What classes will you be showing in?

That would be a very vital piece of information. Some english styles require certain traditions to be maintained (hunters-white or cream shaped/half pad), while others you can be flashy with colours (eventing).

Depends on the shade. My horse is a very red liver chestnut and yellow looked very good.

I saw a medium chestnut/sorrel in pale, pale green and it looked stunning! Pale green saddlepad with white pping, and brown tack.

This is helpful even though it's for western clothes. It'll give you an idea of where to start...
