What color?

What color do you think would look good on my horse? I feel like I can't find anything that looks good on him...he's so much harder to find a color for than the browns, bays and grays I've ridden previously, they look good in everything lol.

I like the color on her halter, but I think blue would like nice too.

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.

What colors have you tried on him that you didn't like? Personally, I think he would look fantastic in a royal blue....but IMHO everything looks great in royal blue LOL.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Green! Bright green. Not neon, but not hunter either

I like to pick colours that pop off that red coat... A strong green or blue... I also did solids on my paint, let his pattern be my flair.

I agree, a nice, rich emerald green would look great on him too. Just, a good green is so hard to find. Everything I've seen is either too seafoamy or too hunterish.

Would a burnt orange/rust be bad? I like a deep green too.

The colors I have for him right now are hunter green and burgundy, but I associate those colors with the previous horse I rode for a long time (was going to buy him but things fell through) which is why everything of mine is mainly burgundy and hunter green, so I'm trying to steer clear from those colors.

He's a kind, willing, conservative sort of guy, so I feel too bright of colors don't suit him. He's the sort of guy who would like bland, manly colors lol.
