Need help with what color tack to get..

I'm looking to get a new saddle but have run into a problem. What color saddle would look good on my Grullo QH gelding Wolf? Here is a picture of my boy to give you an idea of what he looks like atm.

And here is a link to a saddle that I used to always want..Would that medium oil color look alright? or no? American Saddlery Bear Trap Rancher Saddle -

The medium is the darker of the two, yes? If it is, I vote yes for it. I think any darker color would look good on him, as far as the saddle/bridle/breast collar go.
Do not tell me I can't...because I will show you that I can.

I really like yellow on grullas....But a darker saddle I think. He'd look good in quite a few colors actually....I think anything you'd want to put him in.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I suggest medium or dark brown tack, with teal accents :)

He is super cute!

He would look great in any medium to dark oil saddle, you could even get away with black, which is coming back into style in the show ring ;)

Thanks for the replies and compliments everyone :) DH said that I could get some new tack for him as a late anniversary present so the only thing stopping me was what color tack to Now I can continue my search and hopefully find something before spring.
