Question Black tack on bay horse?

Ok, this is probably a dumb question but is it "ok" to have black tack for a bay horse?

You could have neon green tack if you wanted!! Hahaha

Depends on what your discipline is and if you're showing or not.
Some shows don't care for the color of your tack, and others might look down their noses at you.

For dressage, I think it's rare to see brown tack, but I've heard that's making a come back..

Can confirm. 99% of dressage tack is black, and 90% of dressage horses are bay. (Percentages made up, but you get the idea )

I think black looks best on bays, however dark brown is my favourite.

Around here at least black is by far the most common tack colour.

Oh good, cause I just bought a bay mare to do dressage with. We should fit right in then

I have a bay Morgan, and choose deep royal purple for her tack - (not dressage, obviously), I love the color on her! :)

As long as you don't plan to show in the hunter ring black is definitely ok. I personally like darker tack on dark horses, so I think black would look nice. I personally prefer havana/dark brown, but I couldn't do black even if I wanted to lol.

Depends on your discipline. Black is in for some, not for others. But, I personally think that black looks great on a bay horse. Looks great on a bay, but not on a chestnut!

I do dressage, and it's all I use. I have a reddish/medium bay mare and we use a black pad, black bridle, black wraps, and black saddle. It looks classy. :)

Oh yeah, that would look just fine. My current lesson horse is a bay and we use black tack on him.
