    Nice colours on chestnuts

    Soo my sister has gone to Oz for 5 months and I am taking over her horse a bit. Any of you who know me know I like Misty looking fabulous and her wardrobe is wayy bigger and better than mine I'm not spending too much on Freckles as I don't have a job but what coulours look good on a chestnut?

    I'm thinking along the lines of green and NO RED!

    Mine looks perfect in Hot Pink. Bahahahaha.

    I think greens look lovely on chestnuts, but depending on just how red they are, you sometimes get a Christmas-type effect. Green would look silly on my girl. But I think maybe a lime green would look nice. Pictures would help!

    Ah she's got a lovely white face and that flaxen mane - green would be stunning. I'd stay away from hunter green though, maybe a bright emerald green would look nice. :]

    Wow, she's pretty. I love flaxen mane's and tails.

    Thank you I was thinking maybe minty green or lime, but wasn't sure if lime would be too clashy

    I have a minty lime on my Palomino - compliments the flaxen beautifully. :]

    I like purples on chestnuts.

    Wow she's cute . I think green would be a good choice (or then darker blue).

    I'd prefer green/blue like this:

    My cross country colors are navy blue and sunburst yellow (bright yellow but NOT neon). They look awesome on chestnuts... and every other color for that matter!
