As I'm sure a lot of people here have a special color(s) for their horse, as in halter, lead rope, or basically anything they like to match...what colors do you think looks good on a bay horse?

Greens, or natural tones. I'd stay away from red or purple, though, just my opinion.

I think a neon or sky blue looks amazing on bays!

There is nothing wrong with Purple on a Bay. My best friends horse is Bay and colors are Purple.

Navy Blue
Royal Blue

I'm boring, my bay wears black.

I've used red and purple on him and it looks good too. A light purple wouldn't look as good as a deep, rich purple though.

Just said it was my opinion. ;) I didn't say it was right or wrong.

My favs on bays are purple, red and hunter green, though bright blues don't look too bad!

We have 4 bays.

Hugo is in navy blue
Kody is in "wine"
Fanta is in purple
& Phoenix is in hunter green.

Personally I think they all look smashing!

My horse, Sailor, is a very dark bay with black points. I use burgundy tack because that is my favorite color. It doesn't look good on him as he is almost burgundy himself. My friends tease me about even getting a burgundy horse. You would not believe all the stuff I have collected in that color. So much that when I am looking for something, sometimes I can't find it because EVERYTHING is the same color!!!

Anyway, the burgundy looks great on my black horse. I think Sailor looks sharp in black. Sorry, this isn't much help.
