    Color Ideas Needed

    I have two Thoroughbreds who I ride both english and westen. As of now, I do not show, just pleasure ride. I have a tack obsession and always buy way more tack than I need, so now that I have added a new color to my horses, I need an idea for what colors to use for pad/polos and I can't decide if I want to get a bling breast collar set or stick with black.

    I use the same saddle on both horses. The western saddle is shown below. Right now I have just a plain black neoprene saddle pad and black breast collar/bridle. The englsh saddle is havana brown, but I am looking at getting a new, better fitting one.
    Horse number 1 is a very orange(the one in my pic) and horse number 2 is a bay with black points.
    Ideally I would like to use the same tack on both of them, but I can't decide what would look best on both colors.

    The brest collar shown is the one I really like...but I don't know if it would be too much on my girls.

    Bling is a cowgirls best friend. Bling it up!

    I also think a bright purple or turquoise would look amazing!

    I am the opposite; it detest bling. It looks cheap, to me, especially if it does not match the bridle , at least. Almost all tack with bling on it is of a lesser quality, meaning the leather and the metal fittings, and those bling things will become sources of irritation if they come into contact with the horse's skin, or yours. And, they snag on things.
    Count me anti bling.

    Use the saddle blanket to add color and jazz things up. You can get 2, one for each colored horse. Same tack, individual blankets.
