help on choosing colors.

i need help in choosing my 2 horses colors.i have a 3 yr old tn walker mare thats chestnut and her saddle and tack is brown but i dont know what saddle pad or other colors would look good on aunt suggested a flouresant green,not neon but a bright green.she is a medium chestnut.

my 2nd horse is a 18 month old quarter horse that im going to be showing in halter soon.he is also about the same color as my tn walker but he looks a little darker.i have no idea what colors would look good on him.

All I can say is don't choose red. I've noticed that red typically looks terrible on chestnuts.

I understand your dislike of blue, I don't like blue either. Of course, my horse looks stunning in blue, especially since she has blue eyes, but I don't care. =P

Maybe you can go to the local hardware store and get those colored cards to help you pick out paint? That way you can actually see the colors, and it's free. =]

I've seen chestnuts that look awesome in Dark/Hunter Green. But, it depends on how dark the horse is... just a thought.
