Saddle Pad Color Suggestions? And Some Other Help...

Well, I've decided that I have enough money to buy a white saddle pad, a fun colored saddle pad, and a Christmas present for Thumper . My Christmas present is going to be a new bridle, since his bridle at the moment is a hand-me-down from another horse and just about dead... not really, but I don't really think that it's Thumptastic!
Anyway, I thought I would ask for some help regarding colors that you think would work with Thumper's coat color. Here's a picture of my beautiful boy...

I'm for sure getting a white saddle pad, but what color do you think would look good on him? I'm more into the subtle colors like navy, burgundy, etc. but I'm definitely open to other ideas! I'm really horrible at color-matching so please help me out!

Also, I've been looking into inexpensive bridles for a Christmas present for Thumper. Here is one I found- is it any good? Do you have any other suggestions? I'll post more I've looked at in a couple minutes- my computer is acting up

I'm looking for something that would match his saddle relatively well, doesn't have to be perfect as I'm not picky . I'm partial to raised and stitched bridles, though! I'm looking for something that's inexpensive but still nice enough to show in. I just do small schooling shows with him, but I'd still like to look presentable .

I think a navy or baby blue would look great with your saddle and the color of Thumper. I like blues and greens on a bay horse.

For his color I would recommend black, navy blue, or very dark purple.

Okay, thanks :). I never thought of baby blue! Maybe I'll have to get THREE saddle pads lol. There IS Christmas coming up, after all . I've been looking at Riders International saddle pads- they have a gorgeous baby blue saddle pad! I just might have to get that one later! Anyway, here's the link. They're really popular at my barn.

I'm a little iffy about the gray/maroon/navy blue saddle pad... any opinions? I'm just not sure about the gray.

Definitely blue on a bay. I love red bays with bright blue.

It sounds like blue is pretty popular :). Any opinions about the navy saddle pad? It's growing on me, but I'm still not sure... I'm going to start a new thread for the bridles, here it is if you want to comment/help me out: Bridle Help!

Navy is a lovely color! And very easy to co-ordinate with! Going to check out your bridle thread.

Navy with baby blue piping is my colours- I have a red bay and a brown so tey look pretty cool- but I def love the baby blue with navy trim!!!!!!!!!! Its super-- think I might get one!

Navy would look very good on him, so would burgundy, but I think burgundy would be harder to co-ordinate!
