i need help picking out a new western belt/tack set!
 
please help me decide!!!

okay so i have a black and white paint mare ( i will add a picture) i need help picking out what western headstall/breastcollar set would look best on her, and ALSO which belt i should get. i would also like some suggestions on how to dress, like color combinations, so that i can further flatter my horse but still show off the belt/boots. btw my cowboy hat is white, and my boots are brown and turquoise/pink, but they are easily hidden with my jeans if i need to.

okay so here are the two tack sets:

I vote for this tack set

And this belt

I think the pink would look better on your horse, then the turquoise from your boots would pop. I chose this belt because it's got a lot of detail in the buckle and would pick up the metal in the tack.

Also I didn't like the shaping of the turquoise tack set. I think the straight edges look best.. otherwise it's entirely TOO complicated.

But just my opinion :)
As for how to dress... I would think since you have a white hat and a whole lot of bling going on, keep it simple and you won't look over cooked but more polished. Personally I'd lean for a darker palate like navy or browns.

I hope you get other advice so you can have lots of opinions and choices !

I like the turquoise set with the bluish belt. But I also loathe pink. :lol:

I like the pink bridle set.

And as for the belts.. I just got my atlas belt today and those suckers are HEAVY. Anyhow, If you want more bling, Go for the second or third one. I have a belt that is similar to the first one and its just not as bling as i want it to be (granted its not by atlas. but its basically the EXACT same thing but brown) , so i had to wear a nice big ole' buckle to make it stand out. And i think the pink belt with the pink tack would be overload. And I think the pink belt is tacky.

>> I love the brown belt because.. I have the same one only with alternating barrel racing conchos. Either way, atlas has good quality belts. Plus the detail on the buckle is just..amazing.

I like the pink tack set and then I feel like you should find a belt between numbers 1 & 4! A little bit of pink, but not to much (:

I think it also depends upon what you are showing in, as well as what your saddle looks like. I am one who prefers less bling......I like the tack set, but am not convinced any of the belts go with it.....but then, I am a "matchy matchy" sort.......Also-what does your bit look like? Chaps or jeans? Lots of unkowns I think.......:-)
