Do you think the bridle or colours/print would clash?

Because I have a zebra pad & bridle I was hoping to have as my second set..

I'm going to kick in a potentially dissenting opinion: What color is your horse, and what color are your show clothes? Because I love that rhinestone-y bling in #1, but I also love that blast of color and the zebra thing in #2.

(As a disclaimer, I should say 1) I am a Texan, and we have Different Feelings about these things from Normal People, and 2) the Western Riders at my barn think I have the aesthetic tastes of an 8-year-old girl, but they are from New England, not Texas, and I think that is most of it.)

That is, that saddle will go with either set, so I think the decision has to be about the horse and your other colors...

I agree, he is a chestnut and I don't exactly wear show clothes but I prefer black.

First set would look perfect with your saddle. If you want a pop of color, you could always get some pretty colored SMBs.

Where are these tack sets from?

The zebra set will look STUNNING with you in black. But I'd say a black blanket for the horse, too...

And with a chestnut, I'd say the white, green, or blue zebra, but not the pink.

even with all that factored in i think the white zebra set is just that, to white, and thats what makes it clash with your saddle,

the first set matches your saddles perfectly, and doesn't make the saddle look washed out or anything, plus your show clothes match the seat of the saddle, and with the rhinestones its perfect, all you would have to do to tie that in is to get matching SMB's to the rhinestones and you have perfection!
