I love the red! I'd also go invest in some black slacks from Goodwill. ;) I tell all my 4H kids to do so. $5 gets you a finished and polished look.

The blue is more pleasing to the eye and balanced. With the blue I notice the horse. The red draws my attention to the red and I don't see anything else but the red and aqua. It is very distracting and unpleasant.

This may sound weird because I bet most horses look good in black, but I've always thought that black looked really sharp on him. That was random.
I personally think that most chestnuts don't look good in black (don't know why, just doesn't appeal to me) but I do like the look of the black pad on your horse with your brown tack. I love black anything on a bay, buckskin, or similar, but black and red wouldn't be my first color choice if I had a chestnut.

So, I'd go with the blue shirt and pad. I love the first pad, but I agree that it clashes with your horse... if I rode western I'd love to have one for my bay! Regardless of which combo you pick, I agree with what someone else said. Picking up a pair of black slacks will make you look infinitely more spiffy Nothing wrong with riding in jeans, it'll just add to the picture.

Thanks guys for the suggestions! TheChelseyDee and DuckDogger, you both mentioned the black pants- are you talking about show pants? Would that be appropriate at small county shows?

Honestly, I don't know anything about western shows. Best to ask someone else about proper show attire, but I don't think there's any show in which jeans would look better than black pants for a finished look :)

^ Black jeans, or a dark wash would be more appropriate. Generally the slacks look better with chaps, otherwise they ride up your leg. Jeans tend to "stick" better, but the ones you are riding in are too light and "casual" looking.



These are my "local show jeans", they are darker and cut like slacks. They are also starched and ironed. Bling pockets are optional xD
