Wink Black Horse: What Color Tack?

So I am excited to start showing my mare this year but I am in desperate need of new show tack so I need help with colors. Charm's "color" is turquise(spelling?) or light blue. I will be shopping for an all leather barrel saddle and possibly just a regular all around western saddle with some silver on it. I am also going to get matching headstalls and breast collars as well of course!

What color tack do you reccomend for a black horse?

I was thinking about black on black but many people say no to that. What do you think?

For references of what my mare looks like look at my avatar or any of my other pictures.

I like black and black too. But I do Dressage so I think black looks good on anything .

She is BEAUTIFUL first off, and second, I think that maybe black with studs, or silver would look good; or maybe mahogany/dark brown... not many horses can pull off mahogany(my horse for instance) but I think your girl could. :p Good luck, she looks wonderful.

Here is the website I got my saddle from, they are beautiful and VERY affordable.

Black looks good on all horses, IMO. I've had Chestnuts and Black horses that looked amazing in black tack

Black tack on a black horse with silver/chrome hardware makes me shiver with delight. I think it would be stunning with turquoise accents for her saddle blanket/boots.

It looks way too good to be true. What's the quality like?

Thanks guys! Yah black is safe and its my fav color in tack. Now I have to try and find a nice looking barrel saddle with some nice trim.... hmmm... that might be tough! Lots of light oil brown but not a whole lot of black.

Thanks Haylee! I like to think she is pretty but everyone thinks their own horse is lol. I have a mahogany/ dark brown trail saddle for her at the moment and I like it on her but it is a little to long for her back.
