I don't know how to load pictures, so I'll have to add links.

I like lime green or turquoise on a bay. It really pops, and looks so eyecatching. They're not the same thing everyone else is wearing, but not too difficult to find. If you're on a budget, check ebay.

Here is a bay in some lime green:
</title></head><body onload='if (!window.parent.StateManager || window.parent.StateManager.frameSaving) return;window.parent.StateManager.restore(decodeUR IComponent(document.body.innerText));'>"+enc(b)+"</body></html>");c.close();a.frameSaving=false}

More green:
</title></head><body onload='if (!window.parent.StateManager || window.parent.StateManager.frameSaving) return;window.parent.StateManager.restore(decodeUR IComponent(document.body.innerText));'>"+enc(b)+"</body></html>");c.close();a.frameSaving=false}

Another lime green:

And turquoise:
Turquoise halter:

You could just get a saddle pad or blanket, reins, halter and maybe some leg wraps. Then either match your shirt, or get a white or black shirt and wear accessories to match (like vest, bandana or wild rag, tank top underneath, belt, or hair accessories), just depending on what kind of riding/showing you do.

And if you decide on your color quickly, and let Santa know, maybe he'll bring you something in that new color for Christmas!

If you don't invest a ton, you can change every year, or every show!
Let us know what you decide, and post pics!

My hope-to-have-soon gymkhana outfit for Molly! She looks black but she's really light bay in summer!

I would say yellow would look best but it is the hardest color to keep clean. Srry don't have pics to show you! I use yellow on my grey and it looks great!

Check out my bay in my picture with royal blue.... he looks stunning and most everything comes in the color..... from the cheapest to the most custom made item- you can always get it in royal blue :)

I agree that blue would look excellent, also hunter green always looks good on dark bays which yours looks to be
