Smile Burgandy on Chestnuts?

Does the color Burgandy look bad on chestnut/sorrel horses? Does anyone have pictures of that combo?

I think it would depend on your horses shade of chestnut. What I used to do when trying a color was take a picture of the horse, open it in Paint or Photoshop, and "draw" a halter, saddle pad, boots, whatever onto the horse for color comparison. It's not perfect but it does give you an idea! :)

Burgundy is fine. It's tends to blend in, so if you really want something to be eye popping and noticeable, it's not the best choice for that.

Here's my QH in a burgundy turnout.

I think burgundy looks very good on chestnuts. My little buddy, his TB gelding is a chestnut, and I keep trying to convince him that he should go Forrest Green and Burgundy for his colors - cause they look very sharp on his boy.

It does depend on the shade of chestnut that your horse is. My horse is more of the pumpkin orange chestnut, which is okay with burgandy, but not the best. (However, a dark dapple gray with silver looks stunning in burgandy!) I decided on bright blue for her which I think looks quite nice.

I think hunter green looks better because of the contrast.. But that's just me(:

I have a bay and his color is burgundy and gold(:

Thanks for the picture Delfina! You're right- it looks nice, but maybe not the best choice.

I'm thinking that after I sell my mare, I'll start buying and selling project horses. I want a color that works well with all colors of horses. I personally really like burgundy, but maybe there's a better universal option.

Any suggestions of what will look great on everything? That probably doesn't exist, but I figured I'd ask!

I think royal blue/navy blue looks good on most horses.
But that's my personal opinion :p. The color you choose depends on yours.

burgandy, horse's color
