Question What Color??

I just got a dark bay filly, and I need to choose her color. I ride dressage, so not all my tack can be colored, but I like to have a color for around the barn. I was thinking orange or yellow, but I am open to suggestions. I included a picture just so you could get an idea on her specific shade, and because who doesn't love to post pictures of their horses?

I think orange or red would be nice. I think the horse is too dark for yellow. This color matches just about anything though!

I dont know.. i'd say either hunter green or yellow, possibly purple as i've found purple looks lovely on a horse that color.

Purple and pink have been taken by my other horses, others I would use one of those, haha. I thought about green, but I want something a little more girly, that'll make her pop

I think the orange and yellow for bright colors for her would look cool on her! Tell me where you can get a bright yellow pad! lol

turquoise is a nice color on dark bays, a really green one though, not anything with too much blue.

My horse came out of a freaking dream.....<3

I tried to find some true turquois colors but couldn't :( At least not in dressage saddle pads.

My mare is almost that color and she looks great in a bright blue (I saw that you said pink has already been taen, but I accent the blue with a hot pink whih also looks really good).

I think a sunny yellow or a deep orange would look lovely on her.

I pick my horses colors based on their personalities. Loki is Purple, Red is Green, Divo is Dark Blue, and Squeaker (my new two year old) doesn't have a color yet He's very down to earth, so I'm thinking more along the lines of cream for him.

Wait! I'll fix it....
