What color saddle for a copper bay?

I want to get a Wintec CC saddle. I can't decide between the caramel or the brown. I originally wanted caramel because I liked it better. But I thought the brown would look better with her coat color. What do you think?

I vote brown because its darker. The caramel will blend in too much with the colour of the horse's coat, unless you use a darker saddle pad underneath.

I thought I should add that I am showing hunters. Am I correct in saying that a darker brown is currently the trend in saddles?

I'm really not sure about that. But I would definitely go with the darker. It'll look really pretty against her coat with a nice white show pad.

for hunters (if it is like workers over here) then darker :) so I voted brown

A good horse can never be a bad colour...

I do hunters as well, & darker is the way to go- brown!

Success comes a [bit] at a time.
