what color looks best on a bay?

There's so many bay horses my area showing in neon colors, and so am I. I want my pony to stand out, so what colors look best on a bay horse other than lime green, neon yellow or neon pink ? What do you show your bay in?

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes it's the voice at the end of the day that says "I'll try again tomorrow"...

Burgundy with grey trim are my mares colors. She also looks smashing in red and royal blue

It's not very shouty, but I think a mid-to-dark blue looks really classy on a bay. Something like a french navy. Otherwise, have you thought about white? Either as contrast against another colour or in its own right - I saw a white beta bridle on a bay arab and I never thought it would have worked but it did...

Four horses, two people. 4000km in to the South American leg of our trip,and now in Brazil. Drop us a line on The Great Horse Trip

IMO look for tack colors NOT being used, if you want to stand out. Personally, I agree that burgandy tack looks super on a bay, as well as navy blue, and black.
Consider all of the splashy paints in the show ring trying to stand out among all of the splashy paints. A solid horse would sure catch the judge's eye, right?
Post some pictures for us when you decide. =D

I always thought royal blue stood out beautifully against a bay coat.
