Color tack for Color horse

I was just wondering what color tack you think goes best for a certain color horse?
I love Green (any shade) with a White(Grey) or black horse
For a palomino, I like either blue (royal or light), pink, or purple
For blood bay, I like white, red, or gold
I like white for a chestnut

Just curious about what colors other people like with certain color horses, or even if it's something you ever thought about.

I want to buy some things for the two horses I have this summer and am interested in color combinations people like

Hmm. There are a lot of nice colour combos, but these are my favourites.
Red on bays and chestnuts.
Purple on greys <3
Most colours look good on blacks, but I think green is nice.
Light/pastelly colours on palominos :)

My favorite color is lime green, so majority of my stuff(not just tack but everything) is lime green :)

But, for my chestnut, green looks really nice on him. My bay has red stuff, and my moms paints (bay/black) have blue tack. I do like purple on greys and palominos though.

There are so many shades of certain colors that I usually just pick based on the specific horse.

I ride my very weirdly colored grey mare in turquoise and black. I am putting my bay tobiano gelding in a regal all black and white. And when my colt is big enough to break out, I don't know what I'll put him in yet. He is thus far a bay, but of course hasn't finished his foal transitions.

I love weird colour combinations... my sister's blue roan, who has rose dapples on his hindquarters, wears a dark pink, almost burgundy. My blood bay wears bright purple - really suits it too!

I love it! It's so cute!! How do you like riding in the nylon type bridle as opposed to leather?

I have a dark bay gelding, of which I think he would look lovely in pink and purple but I feel like he'd look at me and say "but I'm a boy..." so I put royal blue and orange on him lol

Well, it's not nylon, its biothane. I HATE nylon lol but I LOVE the biothane! I was always a strictly good quality heavy leather person until I found out this was waterproof :) I am one of those super anal about everything owners who cleans her tack a lot and after cleaning and cleaning and oiling my tack a lot I was soooo ready for something I can hose down and just swipe with a rag and not have to worry about cracking leather and then oiling :) It's really flexible and very light! Def worth the $ I spent on it :) Although I still love my leather pieces and sets :) I'm a sucker for some pretty tooling <3

That might be the coolest thing ever. I might have to look into this biothane stuff!! I've never seen it before, but the serious lack of major maintenance is nice!! Plus... COLOR!! I love color haha.

I think my chestnut paint looks good in baby blue, navy, black, and white. ;) He looks good in a rich dark royal purple too, but it's tough finding stuff in that colour here. Anytime I put him in white it really brings out his chrome!
