colors for creams

I have been involved with horses for ages, working at horse barns riding all sort of horses for reining, and my own but due to work I have missed out showing since I'm never around during shows season because I'm out on the road.. but I'm starting to change my career so I can enjoy more of the stuff I like and spend more time with my horses that I usually miss out on and try to play catch up during the winter when work is slow..

So my question since I have two new horses coming up that I plan on showing next year which colors should I be looking to use on them for shows?.. They are half sisters, one is a dunskin and the other is a dunalino both on the lighter side, minimal white.. I'm probably going to have black for the dunskin and cream for the dunalino because you can't go wrong with either of those colors, but far as the brighter colors I'm lost, I want to start putting together a collection now so hubby wont notice as much lol

I don't think you can really go wrong with any color, except yellow.
I think turquoise, royal blue, raspberry pink, or purple would really pop. If you wanted to be a bit more understated, teal, olive, sage, or hunter green would be nice.

A picture of the horse could help :>

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

First two are of my Dunskin "Chloe" and last two are of the Dunalino "Farrah" full body picture of Farrah is darker because she was wet from her bath.

On the dunskin, royal purple, and on the dunalino, raspberry pink or turquoise or teal.

Dark brown would go well with the dunalino, dark brown chaps, brown and white print shirt and a white hat for summer and switch out the hat to dark brown for winter and add a vest that matches the chaps.

i think raspberry flatters their color family very well. I would try to stay away from black just because it is going to be extremely in your face, browns and tans would be much softer, but still have pop
