what colour?

i have a golden buckskin mare iam showing this year...having a hard time deciding on show colours that would look good on her. as her colour changes with the seasons. i like black paired with some other colour..i lovee bright pink but im nt sure if shes too "orangey" looking for pink. i like purple too, like a deep purple or gold maybe if it was the right shade...? what do you think would look good on her? ive posted a whole bunch of pictures of her coat spring, summer, fall, and winter (sorry for the overload lol). any ideas would be very appreciated:) thanks!

I use teal/light blue, shades of purple, black, and maroon on the buckskin gelding I have on free lease. I would stay away from very light brown and gold.

I'm going to say she would look very classy in plain old black! Purple would be nice too.

I think dark purple would be beautiful on her. (:

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

Buckskins look good is so many colors paired with black. I like a black, gold, hunter green combo....or deep green/teal (not bright teal) with black and gold, purple is ok as long as it is a rich purple not a bright purple. Whatever colors you do, use black as your base and gold as your accent.

I think baby blue and black would look good but she is so stunning on her own I don't think you could go wrong!

I think plain black would look really classy. Deep teal would be lovely, too.
