Help me choose saddle pad color? -just for fun-

Hello all!

I'm thinking about getting another saddle pad as I only have one right now and it's hard to keep it clean all the time.

The one I have right now is blue and I think Diamond looks adorable in it. My problem is that If I got another one I'd like for it to be a different color and there are just too many to choose from!

I understand that there are quite a few people on this forum that enjoy finding and coordinating colorful tack for their horses so I thought I'd ask for your opinions. What would you go with?

Here are the pads I'm looking at (quite a few fun colors):
PRI Saddle Pads - Pacific Rim International PRI Cotton Quilted Saddle Pads from Equus Now!


Here is Miss Diamond sporting her current pad which is the 'Coast' blue. My apologies for the awful cell phone pictures!





Also I found these the other day:
Colored Fillis Stirrup Pads | Dover Saddlery

I've been imagining how we'd look with a set of them. If I ever ordered something from Dover it would be awfully tempting to add these on. Based on current and potential saddle pad colors, what color do you think would match the best? XD

Thank you! I hope the topic of this post isn't too rediculous.

I am here to learn! :)

Wow. I like the teal, the magenta, the lavender, and the kelly. I think on a dark horse these colors would "pop". I personally love the color orange and the pumpkin.

I couldn't pull up the dover site...so I can't say there.

My mare is chestnut and I want to put her in either a light purple or a light pumpkin. If you go to my profile you'll see her. Do you think she is too "red" though?

I wanted those stirrup pads really bad at one point, but a group of people had bought them and said that they faded really fast. I don't know, because I didn't buy them, but that's what I was told(:

Thank you so much for your suggestions everyone, the different perspective is very helpful. Now I've got the choices narrowed down to something more manageable!

You have a 'D' too! I think she'd look really nice in any shade of purple; I know a few darker chestnuts that rock it.

I like the green and yellow as well. Burgundy would be pretty too, it's a very regal colour.

I prefer thicker pads. I feel like a lot of the pads that are sold are really thin and that is true too about colors fading.

Here are two pics of nice pads that are thick and have beautiful "rich" colors as well. They are a little more expensive than the PRI Saddle Pads you were talking about but I feel like it's worth it.
