Well, I usually show with Red and Blue because Blu is white.

I think the best colors would be bright ones.

WHATS REALITY?

Chestnuts do look good in hunter green. You could also go with baby blue.

Much like redheads, I also think they look good in yellow or gold.

How about navy, baby blue, and maybe even neon green. There was a chestnut pony at my old barn that looked absolutely stunning in lime green.

I like hunter green on chestnuts.
Orange, or blue is nice too. ;)

I have two chestnuts. Whitney looks really great in black and my other one, Auda, is in hunter green. I think a light purple that's really bright also looks good with a chestnut, but I have to say black definitely looks the best.

My horse is a chestnut and most of his stuff is either lime or hunter green. The colors look fab on him.
