Help choosing show colors for bay mare plz :)

What are your show/any colors for your BAY horses?

Most of my tack has been handed down to me or purchased on a shoe-string budget, which means I currenlty have little to no matching gear. The few things I have bought new have been pink (I was really liking it initially, but now I feel like I'm playing Barbie dream horse dress-up with my mare and am having second thoughts).

I would love to see some pictures of your BAY horses in their colors. Doesn't matter if they are english or western, just want a visual of how they look in different colors.

I know jewel tones are supposed to be the best, but I'm looking for actual pictures.


Here is my mare under her pink saddle pad...

I don't have any pictures on this computer, but my color is purple with my bay. I have a purple pad and purple outfit. I chose purple because purple is a complementry color of brown.

I was thinking about purple. She has a dark purple halter that looks nice on her...

My bay gelding is in baby blue, but I used to have a bay pony in pink then purple (my fav colors when i was little). My mom's bay filly is in baby pink, which I think looks great on her. I don't have any pics of her though
