My sorrel paint looks good in green camo, actually. :) But to go with that I usually pick up hunter green or black things. On the other hand, I like purple, so everything he doesn't have to wear for rides gets to be purple, such as grooming supplies and training equipment.

Step one: Mount horse. Step two: Stay mounted.

My Aires is going to be decked out in red. He's a black and white tobiano Percheron/spotted draft cross. I'm having a bit of a hard time of it, though, 'cuz I live in a small town (very agricultural/horsey, though) and NONE of the stores carry the kind of halter I want (adjustable) in red in a draft horse size (he has a massive head!). :-/

Dakota, the bright bay arab/saddlebred gelding I kind of owned last year (long painful story), was decked out in red and black lumberjack plaid. Even his fly mask was red and black plaid. The only pair of polo wraps my friend had that fit him were red and black plaid and I thought it was hilarious because he was this tough, macho little 14.2hh gelding who thought he was God's gift to mares. :p

My lesson horse has recently been decked out in purple and dark brown. He's a bay blanket Appy, and is man enough pull off a Lami-cell purple fireworks saddle pad. :) Love him to death, even though he can be a bit of an idiot. I'll have to post pics of him in my new tack set soon.

My boy and I are all decked out in bright orange! I like to be seen miles away from the vet check. My headstall and breast collar are biothane so they all but glow. That way when I do 100 mile rides my tack is always the first thing I see when the sun comes up, and the last thing when the sun goes down. :)

Gypsy wears blue. The shade depends on what I can get but usually light and medium blue. The blue looks good with her redish coloring.
Roma wears black tack and has a dark purple and black halter. The dark colors make him look whiter. Light colors make him look dirty.

My horse tux is neon yellow with orange trim. Unless it is hunting season then it all switches to neon orange. She is a dark bay and the bright colors just pop! If I end up getting her half brother (also dark bay) he will be neon green & yellow.

My dogs are Kisa (dark colored german shepherd)- Pink Poe (grey & white husky) - green

My cats Oliver (black) - orange Shadow (black) - black Omi (black) - red Simon (black & white) - green

Comet wears everything! Haha I've been known to dress him with two purple leg wraps, two zebra leg wraps, and a turquoise saddle pad!
Usually we try to stick with turquoise blue or some shades of brown. (He's a chestnut)

Smoke is decked out in baby blue! It's my favourite colour, & looks awesome against his black coat.

I love eggplant. I can't think of any horse that doesn't suit eggplant - it's just a hard colour to find. I'm planning to just buy some stuff and dye it myself.

With six horses, we've run out of solid colors, lol.

Copper, dark chestnut Arab cross, wears black.
Lucy, sorrel TWH, wears purple.
Sheba, sorrel QH, wears red.
Harley, sorrel QH, wears blue.
Ghost, buckskin Appy, wears green.
Chloe, bay QH, has brown/leather.

We don't try to match the color to the horse. Just to keep track of what belongs to who.

Everyone should be allowed at least one bad habit, and that's NOT owning a horse!

Mares RULE! Geldings drool!
