What Color Is My Saddle?

Im looking to buy a headstall and some reins that'll match my saddle. But first I need a good idea as to what to call the color of my saddle. I thought it was rosewood, but Im not 100%, I thought I'd get some opinions.

I'm just reposting a thread as I lost the pics of my saddle, and don't have it on hand to take anymore pics. Lol Sorry.

Bobbie, I would call it either a medium oil or a pecan.

For riding at home I like plain old harness leather work tack. It will be light to start with but it will darken with use. It is generally very durable. Most people even show in the waterloop harness reins. They take a while to break in but once they are well used they are sure to be your favorite reins. Any of the work tack from Schutz Brothers is great.

Thanks guys, from the link posted above, the closest that matches my saddle is the reg. Oil. I can't see it as a pecan (unless they have different levels of pecan).

Moxie, just like every saddle maker has their own version of what to call the color of their saddle, so do other tack makers. A REAL cowgirl just wants to be close in color not a direct match - real cowgirls are not color coordinated

After riding with your tack and oiling it over a season, it all comes out looking close anyway. I started with a light oiled saddle and a medium oiled headstall last year and it's pretty close in color now. (Check out the pics of Bobo).
