if you do go with red, don't go with bright red or your horse will turn orange xD burgundy or Maroon would be best IMO

I have a chestnut and all of her stuff is Lime green or Neon green!! It really stands out. My best friend also has a chestnut and her stuff is Light blue and that stands out too just not as much.
Here are pics...
My girl

Sorry but this is the only one I have of my friends horse..ha ha ha

Good luck

It is not just a horse,
It is the one thing that keeps me from being just a girl

For chestnuts Im thinking lime green, light green, light pink, yellow or orange would look awsome.
Or whatever suits your personalitly.
My pony looks really good in purples but I hate plain purple so I went with a lot of lavender stuff so I wouldn't look the same as other people.

Sorry if I'm completely wrong, but wasn't Ginger a darkerish shade of chestnut?? If I'm not crazy I think a bright red or deep blue would look good

This is a short simple guide to decide what may be the best color for your horse and you.

Number one is to always pick colors you like.

Black, Teal, Mint Green, Hunter Green, all are universal colors that look good on any color horse.

Purple, red, blue and other bright jewel colors look good on Bay, White, Grey, Buckskin, Palomino, Grulla or blue roan color horses.

Cream, Tans, Copper colors look good on Buckskin, Palomino, Grulla, Chestnut, Sorrel or Dun Horses.

I like pink on darker chestnuts, like my girl above, but pretty much everything works on chestnuts; it's really quite hard to make them look bad.
