What Color + What do I need?

As most of you know, I am looking at that TB gelding tommorow :) Im super excited.. and I know Im getting ahead of myself here..
But what color tack would look best with him.. like as in leather.. black, dark havana, chestnut or white color?
What color for halters, blankets, lead lines, polo wraps, saddle pads would look best?
Like green, blue, pink, black, white etc.

He is a chestnut and here are some piccys:





Thanks!! XD

He knows when you're happy He knows when you're comfortable He knows when you're confident And he always knows when you have carrots.

He's pretty. I prefer black tack but that's just me. Traditionally speaking blue or green looks good on chestnuts but heck have at it!

Also, they are including a western saddle, and dressage saddle.. but I need a all purpose english, or jumping saddle.
Which kind is best to get?

Since he's coming with a dressage saddle (assuming it fits you) I would go with a jumping saddle.

If you needed one saddle for dressage and jumping then I would say AP.

I guess that would be a good idea :) I think its a 16 inch ?
I will see if it fits..
Also, if a cheap english pleasure saddle comes up for cheap, I can't resist :)

he is really adorable, looks like he takes off a little soon, and he could tuck the fronts a little tighter.

Thanks :)
Well, what I was wondering was what colors would look best on him, not really critique.
Thanks though, if you want to critique a bit that's fine too :)
