Talking Saddle Pad Color?

Hey! Im new and decided to try my hand at making a post. I have a bay gelding and wanted to get a new english saddle pad for him for christmas. Right now i have a light blue one but it gets dirty really easily and i am now looking for a color that still looks good but does not get dirty as fast and is as easily seen. Any ideas? I was thinking black but thats boring if you know what i mean! haha Also, what is your favorite brand of pad?

I think red would be perfect.

Heather, I personally really like "quiet" colors (like cream, peach, light yellow, etc.), and I think either of them would look nice on bay. I came across this one recently (let you customize the pad with plenty of colors to choose from, piping and trim including). I'm thinking to order there myself may be for X-mas.

My bay gelding has a hunter green saddle pad, which looks fantastic on him. I chose hunter green because his name is Shamrock.. and yeah, you can see what I did there. Haha.

I also have a white one with navy piping that says "CEC 2006", I won it at the year end awards when I showed. I don't use it much, only to cover my saddle in my tack locker.

I want a reversible yellow/navy one for him as well as a black one. :)
