Smile Best tack color to match my Chestnut gelding

I recently got my first horse, Roman, a 16.1 Dutch Warmblood gelding, and I really want to pick a color that would make him stand out on the show jumper ring or on the cross country field. Any imput would be great!

Hi there:) First of all, GORGEOUS horse! Love the coloring, he's beautiful! I can imagine a dark cherry or burgundy on him, or even very deep, dark washed tack would draw some attention! I think the contrast would look great. Good luck!

He is gorgeous! I would also go with a deep burgundy color. Would love to see pics with what you do =)

My horse's feet are as swift as rolling thunder He carries me away from all my fears And when the world threatens to fall asunder His mane is there to wipe away my tears.

absolutely beautiful boy!!! ♥ i think a nice dark rich hunter green would look nice on him :) or maybe this shade of green:

i also find that baby blue & navy blue look REALLY good on any horse! i had a baby blue saddlepad that looked gorgeous on every horse i rode, and my chestnut paint looks great in his new navy one :)

Teal or Turquoise.

I think any shade of blue or green would look good, as well as the deep maroon/burgandy

Gorgeous horse! I have a gelding is the same color(he's a little darker) and he looks fantastic in a neon green. Also a lavender color, or any blue, especially navy.

I agree with the teal/turquoise! I have 2 chestnuts, similar in colour to your horse and I love this colour on them! The colour I use is called "Caribbean Sea". If you're not really keen on that colour a nice dark hunter green is nice too!

He's a very handsome horse!
