Question Would this show color go with my horse? Please help!

Ok, I have been showing in a lighter (but not quite lime) green for the past few years. However, I just made a horse change, so do I need to make a color change? In other words, would this color green:



Go with a buckskin of about this color?:



Or should I change my show colors?

Please help because I can't decide!!!

Thanks!!

I would say yes, if money prevails. However, one way to tell: take a photo of the horse tacked up. Make it a close up shot and a distant shot. You and a friend look at it and see what you think. Try and manufacture different lighting if posisble (times of day/indoor).

It's a little to limey for my taste. I'd go with a darker green(:

I have seen lime green work on some buckskins and others not so much but 2 colors that seem to look amazing on them are red and purple

I'm not a fan of lime green, but just wanted to say your horse is beautiful. You almost don't want a loud color that would take attention away from the horse.

Is the pic of the saddle pad you posted the actual color that you all ready own?
I might be the odd man out here, but I think that kind of "mossy" green would look really nice on a buckskin!
Very earthy, and would not detract from your horse....
And you would save money.

No, it's not the ACTUAL color, the color I'd want is a little bit more "earthy". And I agree, I like the green

I'm a big green fan any way, just about any shade or tone...
Like jdw said, take some pics all tacked up, might make it much easier to decide.
Don't forget to post pics for us to see too!
