Color to match my gelding?

Here is Rico, I hope to show him this summer at our local fair and need to know what color(s) would best go with this color. I plan to make my showmanship top but posting links to already made tops would be helpful also. Thanks!

I think blue would look nice.. or purple!

I love Hobby Horse's color wheel: Hobby Horse Clothing Co. - Description

Personally, I think any shade of blue or green would look nice, or maybe a deep burgundy color. What a handsome fella!

It might be hard to find, but i think a turquoise-y color would look nice!

I think he'd look good in a dark maroon, any deep color such as a dark purple honestly. Also black.

I'm a huge green fan. I think Hunter would look fantastic on him, bring out the reddish in his coat...but I'm bias.

Wow, thanks for all the ideas. Purple and turqouse, hmmm, wonder what they would look like together? Hunter, as in Green? That would look good too. Black wouldn't be dark? Maybe I will drape him in some colors and take pictures. Have to wait for good weather, he's a bit dirty!

I think he could really pull off all those colors. I have a white, silver, red, and black outfit for my black & white tobiano and I love it hehehe I also have a a LIGHT blue outfit I really need to get a pic of him with... but here is us:

(please ignore the heading I tried to crop it off but I suck >.<)
^^ Can be pricey but can def. spark some ideas
^^ never seen these guys before but once again never hurts to poke around for ideas. Once you decide on one sometimes you can get them dirt cheap on eBay

scoutrider, I love hobby horse's color wheel too! *was gonna post it but was obviously too slow* It really helps I think.

To rein a horse is not only to guide him,
but also to control his every movement.
