Breast Collar Colour Advise?

I'm curious what y'all think. I'm in the process of buying new tack for my new mare and trying to figure out what would look best.

My (Western) saddle, bridle, and reins are a medium dark brown, and my heart is set on a zebra print saddle pad. I also always use a breast collar because I do a bit of trail riding, and I'm trying to decide what colour I should go with for it.

What about a dark oil breastcollar with hair-on-hide zebra on it? I know I've seen one and I can picture it, I just can't figure out where it was online. A bit of googling should turn something up.

Aha! Found one. I don't know how close it is to your saddle's colour, but this is what I mean:

Only problem I should have mentioned is I really don't use leather..which does limit things a lot!
One option, though, is that I could buy one to match the saddle and bridle and add on some zebra material. I do a lot of modifications and customization on my tack and equipment and they always turn out quite sharp!

I'm just not entirely sure if that would be best, I'm having trouble imagining it all put together well. The only thing that would make me go with the zebra collar that I found would be because it has black neoprene which would tie in more to the black wear 'leathers' and lining on the saddle pad I'm eying, but I really don't know if I need to do that or not.

If it would help I can go ahead and post the pictures of the different things I have in mind!

Pictures would be lovely! Do you use a synthetic saddle? I think Abetta might have a synthetic breastcollar with zebra, but I'm not 100%.

I always match saddle/bridle/breastplate (although I ride english and my saddle pad is quite conservative color).

Rocky, I'd go with a breastcollar matching your saddle and bridle, and then get a zebra browband to tie the saddle pad in!

Here are the pictures of everything:
I have the standard Wintec Western (I know it has a bad rep, but it works well for me and fits my horse!) in brown. I can never get pictures of what the colour is really like, but this picture of their barrel saddle is the closest:


This is my bridle, it's Weaver


This is the pad I want along with the zebra collar option. It is the Abetta one, actually!


And this is the main brown breast collar I am eying, which is from the same set as my bridle:

Aspin231- That is definitely a thought, too! I really like the look of the V-shaped browbands and was considering changing this one out for one at one point...I could totally make one with zebra print. I will keep that in mind, too!

I love that zebra pad & breast collar! If it were me, I would get the set. But I am an animal print junkie, my granddaughter is dressed up in giraffe print right now, lol.
