help me pick a new tack color :)

Hi everyone! I am getting all new tack for my boy. I have posted some pictures of hime and hie old stuff. I have already gotten a very lighty used saddle (took fro ever to find something that fits perfectly, ended up buying used cause I found one that fits us both like a glove). The one I was using didnt give me the clearence I wanted-he has ver prominaent withers--getting off track anyways... I used to have a lot of teal on him, I am bored with it... I am also a minimalist (when it comes to color) but I do like Bling. The saddle that I bought is a very dark oil with a black suade seat and some silver-it is a barrel saddle. I am also riding him in a little s-hackamore (just though I would throuw that in there). I have attached pictures of a few headstalls I am looking for, simple but with a bit of bling. AND a few saddle pads-plain jane, but what do you think? Hubby told my to pick out what ever I wanted for my birthday :) Also will be getting a matching breast collar and a new rope halter. My hubby thinks I should go with a sharp blue (think grover)...

Oh, forgive me the goofy, pictures, Blitz really is a handsome boy, but he is not very photogenic, and I am a bad photographer. He is a black solid, registered paint, 16.1hh, 5 yrs old.

Sorry, couldnt mark pictures I am looking at th efirst and last headstall (with matching breast collar, and saddle pad black/cream and blue/black. I would love to find a solid blue pad too with no pattern.

If the saddle is more brown than it is black, I'd go with the chocolate black saddle pad, the red would look pretty showy on him, but if the saddle is more black I'd go with the blue to help make his coat stand out more.

Pics of the "new" saddle with your boy modelling it? The teal may take on a whole new look once he's decked out with the new saddle. You'll see better what colors suit him and the saddle.

The saddle is mostly the dark brown, thats why I am looking at the dark headstalls. I donk think I could do lime green-not a fan, or the pastel purple :) Maybe a dark royal purple though (he is a boy, but I dont think he cares :). I would like to stay away from patterns/loud patterns-maybe a solid colour. Why is thi so hard, lol. Its just a saddle pad :)

I think he's look good with burgundy accents - a light burgundy blanket and bridle headstall with matching crystals.
