Exclamation What color outfit?!

I have a chestnut. And I want to get a new outfit for this year. I want to get colored chaps, so black is not really and option. Lighter colors like white and sand are also not really an option because knowing me I would get the outfit dirty within a couple of seconds!! I am also trying to avoid teal or blue because me and my friend go to nearly every show together and her shirt is teal. Also, could you maybe send me some links to some websites that have outfits or shirts that I may be interested in? Thanks!


My horse is my everything.

What about a really pretty coral-type color? "Redheaded" horses I think look great in peachy/orange/pink colors.

What discipline do you show in?

My QH is a sorrel, and she looks stunning in Hunter Green- I can definitely picture that for with your chestnut! :)

I show in 4-H and open shows. This outfit would be for western pleasure and horsemanship. And also western riding.

also, my sister says I should show in a deep purple color. But I'm not too sure about it. I don't think it would look very good with my horse.

My best friend had a bright chestnut Arab mare and deep purple looked absolutely stunning on her.

I think this website might help you:
Snafflez

Pick whatever event you are doing and see what colors look good on the chestnut horse.
