    Colors: One fits all.

    So I realized today that I have way too many colors going on in my tack collection. After jumping from horse to horse in the last year or two, each one has had their "special" color, and consequently I have green, turquoise, burgundy, purple, royal blue and yellow themed tack. My tack locker at the barn I just transferred over to is...well, stuffed with my rainbow of saddle pads, polos and halters.

    I am at the point where I'm about to purchase my own horse (or possibly off-property lease under the right circumstances), but at the same time, it *may* not be the only horse I ride, so I'm kind of wanting to invest in some wraps, boots and saddle pads that are a color that will look good with any coat color.

    Help me? I am advertising some of the colored items I want to be rid of on Craigslist as we type. Just way too much stuff and it would be much easier if I could just buy a few nice items in one color that I can use on whoever!

    Edited to add:
    And also perhaps make it unisex colors...I just personally feel silly putting pink on a gelding, even though I know it doesn't matter at all.

    A paler colour will go easily with all coat colours. Something like pale green or pale blue :)

    Black, Tan, and just plain Leather all look good and really professional. I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure Red and Royal Blue looks good on the majority of horse colors.

    Black or white goes with everything! Its boring, but it works.

    Agreed, black and white are simple and classical and work for literally any colour. I quite like them!

    The only objection I have with white is it's sooo easy to stain. And horses like dirt. Lol.

    I agree with black, tan and leather looking professional though. I should have said though that this is just a schooling color - I am always black/white/possibly navy/brown and nothing else where I need to look professional! ;)

    Navy looks good on most horses.

    You could do a black with a pattern for casual...I bet something like zebra print, plaid, checks, etc would work on pretty much any horse
    Just a thought!

    I didn't even think of patterns. I know I saw some zebra polo wraps the other day, haha! That would be different.

    I like navy as a generic color. Black is also very nice.
