Smile What color tack looks good on a dapple grey?

So I'm getting this little dapple grey in the next month, and I was wondering like what should her color theme be? I ride western, so I'm talking halters, saddle pads, sport boots, etc. I'm deciding to name her Dove, and she the one in my profile pic.. I do not like pink.. Period.. And if you have a specific color, and find some sort of tack in that color, could you send me the link? Thanks!

I think that most colors look great on grays- particularly darker and bolder colors. Light colors may look a little washed out, but other than that any color would look swell on your mare :)

Also, I love the name Dove for her!

You are in luck because nearly every color looks great on greys!

I like the dark colours for grey horses - blue, black, burgundy. I'm not as keen on browns (excluding saddles and bridles) and greens, though.

Grays look good in everything! Pick your very favorite color and it will probably work on her. If she's got a lot of dappling, I would stick with solid colors rather than patterns, but that's just me.

When I was 12-13 I started leasing a dapple gray mare. Someone asked me what her color was going to be, and I was dumbfounded--I was new to riding and had never thought of picking a color scheme for a horse's tack before. I thought to myself, "everything looks good on a gray... so I choose RAINBOW." HA! Monti is now a lesson horse for little girls, and still has her silly rainbow halter and lead rope, her silly rainbow nylon reins, and her silly rainbow sport boots... but I kept the silly rainbow swirly saddle pad. I put it on my BO's horse when he asks me to tack her up :P

Anything does look good grays, but I prefer teal and black.

I love red on greys, personally.
But, any color looks fantastic on them!
