How about a Mahogany?

The dark red tint would look good with that color


May all your Trails be happy and safe ones

So far for brushes I've been buying blues/greens (mostly like turquoise and neon-ish green). I bought a lead rope that has bright green & turquoise dots in it. I had my brush tote embroidered with burgundy.... not sure what I'll go with for a saddle pad but I was thinking of turquoise or burgundy.

Turquoise is the big "in" color these days. I was slow to appreciate the hot colors but love them now. And now they are getting hard to get. I'd so love have a hot lime pad with my black horse and saddle.

Black is in :) I'd recommend looking for a nice older blue ribbon, Harris, etc and then dying it. There's people out there that can do it, or there's DIY tutorials. Both companies also sell black, but new prices are $$$$$$..

It can be really hard to find a black trail/pleasure type saddle!

We have a black leather endurance saddle $449.99

We also have several black show saddles if you are interested in a little bling ;)

I would be really careful with having a saddle dyed...if it isn't done right you will forever be staining your clothes/horse/pad.

Good luck in your search!

Feel free to PM with any questions!

I really like an older half leather half cordura saddle. My dad has one that is WONDERFUL. However when they started getting newer, they went downhill...

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.
