Splint and Bell boot colors for a Dun

I have a coming 4 year old dun mare that I want to start barrel racing and team roping in the Spring, which could only mean one thing: protective leg gear!

My sorrel mare has plain old brown stuff, and I'm not using the same stuff on two different horses, they're better than that! Well, actually, they're probably going to be worked back to back.... and putting sweaty boots on a horse just isn't nice.

**No pink, lime green, or bright blue, too typical**

And, her saddle pad will probably be black, unless I get a new one to match her boots. I am a tack-matching-nazi. I have: matching reins, bridle, breast-collar, and spur-straps. So it only makes sense that each horse has a color!

I think solid black and silver, or a nice dark green look good... at least that's what I've put my dun boy in. :)

I think burgundy would look good on a dun. But if you wanted to be flashy, orange or yellow.

No offense but I think orange or yellow would be pretty loud and distracting on a dun...Maybe a darker orange would be okay thought.

I say either a purple, burgundy, or red.

I was thinking about hunter green, but that's kinda my sorrel's color... She has a hunter green tie down, and her saddle pad has hunter green on it...

Black sounds nice, cause then I could get her these for Christmas:

Black is a nice neutral color. If you like it, go for it ^^

Common sense is telling me the professionals choice smb boots, but I could be wrong as I have no experience with either.

Try looking at reviews online?

I would just go with black..it's classy and crisp looking on a dun.

As for the boots.. the SMB3s are an OK boot..if you are really wanting to get something that is a better choice and last a long time I would get the Professional's Choice VenTech Elites..I have several pair and love them.. The SMB3s just don't hold shape and conform to your horse's legs like a boot should IMO.

Lol And, it's not crazy to have different tack for each horse..my three all have their own stuff and color.
