My sorrel and white paint horse has a burgundy/brownish coloured Stubben saddle which I think looks good on him. I think a black saddle looks too harsh with the red and white body colouring for my particular taste. I also have a brown Wintec that I like as well. I have an orangey leather coloured western saddle, the maker calls it chestnut and I use a burgundy blanket under it. It may seem weird but it looks good on him. I am partial to a royal blue or purple on a solid coloured red horse.

I think that hunter green and navy blue looks great on chestnuts.

I like havana brown (dark brown) leather tack and leather halters.

I like white boots on chestnuts, especially if they have white socks and/or stockings. Polo wraps, in white, hunter green or navy blue. Saddle pads in hunter green or navy blue or white with hunter or navy trim. White sheepskin half pad, if needed.

I think that the navy blue with red accents colour choice you mentioned would look really nice as well.

Have fun shopping for your new horse!
