Best Tack Colors for Each Horse Color?

Can you all share photos showing which tack colors (in your opinion) set off a horses particular coat color?



For instance, the chestnut/sorrel colored horses never really caught my eye, until I saw an endurance horse of that color tacked up in bright teal blue. Wowza, it just made the horse POP.

And a fleabitten horse just draws me in, with a skyblue/purplish tack color.

Via: Beta Biothane® Horse Tack for endurance riders, pleasure trail riders, and any one wanting the best quality synthetic tack on the market today.



Anybody have any favorites they wanna share? For any color of horse?

I have a Blood Bay mare and love her to bits, but I have no idea what color would make her pop so I just fall back on black. It's kinda boring though. :)

Don't have a pic of it, but royal purple looks amazing on red horses (bright chestnuts and bays).

I have a bay aswell and I think he looks epic in royal blue. I love dressing my horse up in random things. He also looks cool in zebra print and/or lime green

I like orange on a redhead. And a rather dark teal, depending on character of the horse.

Wow, Olive, that blue looks beautiful on him.

Your making me wonder if that color would look like that on my mare... She's a bit more redish, but wow, that blue looks so good on him.

Just ran across this. Not a color I would think of, but it really sets this Bay off. :)
