What color looks best on bay horses?

I can't decided what color to put on my gelding! I want him to stand out, not my tack. What colors look good? If you have any pictures that would be great!

This isn't my horse, but it is almost exactly like him!

I switch my bay horses colors all the time. His main colors are red, blue, and orange. A bright Orange really stands out. Purple looks good too!!!

When I first got my bay gelding he was mainly royal blue, but he just looked so darn good in all those colors listed above that I just couldn't keep ONE color.

If you want your boy to stand out, navy blue, black, or white will look professional and subtle to let his rich, coppery colors be the focus. Bays are such beautiful horses!

if you want the horse to stand out...you dont want the tack to pop. IMO any color horse, you cant go wrong with black tack. thats all i use. black tack and black saddles.
