Ackward, since you've already got a photobucket account, you can just copy and paste the pictures themselves instead of c/p the link. Then, it will show up like this



Anyway, she looks like a real sweetie. My go-to color on nearly any color horse is a nice rich royal blue. It's bright enough to be flashy and I've not found a horse yet that didn't look stunning in it. Plus, it's easy to find and match tack, even from different makers. Sometimes with greens and/or purples, the shades will vary from item to item.

Are you riding english or western?

I have a sorrel mare, and I use nothing but hunter green on her-very complimentary to a coppery coat :)

For strong colours I like purple or blue on chestnuts, for a more muted colour a dark hunter green.

I had purple for my chestnut and it was good because there was a lot available.

For my sorrel I use hunter green. Been using it for 26 years on him BUT... He does look pretty awesome in a dark blue or a Royal blue as well. Green is definitely his color though.

Aha, thank you for the picture information Smrobs, and I ride western.

I was wondering what colors might look nice on a white horse? I might be getting my uncle's unwanted white gelding and just thought as long as were on the color subject I would throw him in here.

Royal blue on him as well . Saves having to have separate tack for both horses...providing that the same tack will fit both LOL.

Royal blue on my "almost" white horse.


And royal blue (only the reins, I got rid of that pad because I didn't like it) on my chestnut

I'm a big fan of hunter green on red horses, as well as the classic white. I ride a sorrel mare at my lessons and I always try to get there early so I can get the green saddle pad hehe.

My vote is for aqua or royal blue. Purple would also look good :).
