Colors for a Sorrel Flaxen?

I was thinking like Flaxen/Caramel color with white or something to match Jimmy's mane and tail. My tack is darker and I found that Red colors look best in light earth tones...

Any suggestions?

I have a sorrel horse with a darker flaxen tail and I have chaps that are very similar in color to the wiskey chaps. Pair that color with a tourquiose or light blue and it looks great.

I think sorrels look good in copper/whiskey colors. I like them in green too.

I love brassy redheads in greens, and also muted tans/browns/brown reds. :]

I like them in green! Caramel's nice, too.
