I really like bight on dark, so I do a lot of red for my gelding, and pink and purple for my mare.

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.

I think liver chestnut is the hardest color to match tack to... I have to go with maroon and white.

Loving these photos!

Personally, my buckskin wears purple and dun wears turquoise. As for darker colors, they both look good in navy. The dun also looks good in a dark red.

I guess I didn't realize the link I posted didn't say what it was. It's a color wheel that matches coat colors to tack colors they look best in.

Sasalama, grulla is listed under the "neutrals" group, meaning they usually look good in both the redhead and brunette groups, depending on the rider's preference.

Sasalama, I think a light blue or hunter green would look awesome on a grulla :)

I find my sorrel looks really good in royal blue, thus why I have so much of that colour, but my black and white paint I feel I can put anything on him which is nice. Started with an iced baby blue with him but thinking turquoise or purple might be what I collect next.

I think your right - you just can't get a wrong color on a black and/or white horse.

I found some shots of Grulla horses. I wish I had found purple as it would be cool to see if that set them off well, but here's what I did find from people who called their horses Grulla.

This gal has a shirt that kinda sets off the horses coat.

Tiny photo, but the periwinkle blue bag hanging off the back of this horse caught my eye.

This gals shirt kinda shows what a green would look like on the horse.

Some of the colors look good, some not so much.

I use pink, deep purple, bright blue and black on my buckskin (or maybe she is a smokey brown) and lime green, aqua and brown on the golden buckskin gelding
