Newmarket colour tack on bay horse?

I really want newmarket tan tack, i love the colour. I feel as if it would make my mare stand out, and look really nice! Does anyone have any picture sof tan tack on bay horses?
The saddle im getting as a gift from my dad is the Wintec 500 jump saddle, and i was thinking the newmarket colour, but im not sure howd it look! Someone please help:(
My picture is showing her in western but she is a english horse. Shes wearing a tan bridle, but a little darker than newmarket.

Me too. Newmarket was just about the only colour available when I started (apart from black).

Showing my age, now ;)

You can probably get a secondhand caramel Wintec cc for a good price because most people prefer the dark brown or possibly black. Wintecs tend to have low resale so a nice used one is always a financially prudent buy, compared to a new one. Also, Wintec ccs run 1/2" large. The 16.5" actually measures a full 17". Beware of that and don't buy one too large for you.

Personally? I'm not a fan of the color on darker horses. I think that it looks great on lighter horses, but I don't like it when the leather tack is darker than the horse.

You asked for my opinion, but don't buy your tack just based on what I have to say I know a ton of people that use this color on their dark bays, and it works for them. Just not my favorite!

I think it could look great, but I've never seen a brown wintec.
