Help with choosing showmanship colors

So I am planning on showing my paint gelding in showmanship, but I need ideas for colors.What do y'all think would look nice on him? Up until now Ive shown in a turquoise blue, but I want to look nicer than a walking piece of cotton candy. Any suggestions?

I think any rich jewel tones would look really good with him, like hunter green or midnight blue, maybe a rich purple.

I agree Rich jewel tones would look very good. I put different colors against the picture of your horse so you could see how they would look. Dark colors look really good on lighter horses.

Strength doesn't come from what you can do. It comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn't do.

If he where mine, I would wear royal blue, red or purple. A color to make you pop while showing off your horse!
