Color ideas?

Okay I'm thinking about changing colors with I have on him. Right now I have green but I got bored with it so I wanted to change it up. What color do you think would look best on him?

I was thinking maybe one of theses colors but I'm open to any color ideas

(ignore the blurred out parts of the picture of my horse)

Turquoise is always my fav on brown! I use it on my bay paint, he's so handsome!

One is closer to God's heart on a horse than anywhere else on earth!

Check out Hobby Horse's website. They have a pretty good color wheel.

Turquoise

Orange

Im torn between these two colors. I'm not getting either of these particular pads but just using them for color reference.

I normally try to avoid reds and oranges on sorrel/chestnut horses. It is too easy for the colors to clash with his coat.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
