Chestnuts/sorrels and colours that suit
I recently bought a chestnut mare and am not sure what colour to get all her new things in, like halters, saddle blankets, boots etc.
Can you guys share the pictures of your chestnut/sorrel horses with whatever colour they have, so I can get an idea of how they look?
I'm leaning towards green at the moment... but am not sure!
Sapphire wears purple, her filly Lakota wears orange and Apache wears blue halters. I like just about any color on a chestnut/sorrel except for red of course. :wink:
I should've mentioned as far as saddles go, I like any shade of brown especially a darker brown saddle.

I know red is definately out for chestnuts, but I was thinking how about navy as a main colour, with sort of red lining.
Like a navy halter and a red lead rope. A navy saddle blanket with red piping - not quite around the outside but about 2cm/inch in. Navy boots with red straps.
What do you think?
Navy, yes. Depending on her shade of red, the red might not work, even as accents.
My friend had a chestnut arab mare (she was almost the color of a new copper penny) and she put purple on her. It was adorable and so girly. Makes me sad that I don't particularly care for mares 'cuz I LOVE pink and would love to have it as my tack color...but I'm not doing that to my gelding. lol
XD looks like a lot of us use purple! I do as well, though in varying shades. It makes the mares look more feminine ^^ All of my tack is black or brown because I drive, but I'm planning on buying new pads for the breastpiece and surcingle soon, and I'm ordering them in purple!
her halter is 'wine' purple, and I have red, blue, purple, and brown leather leads. Lunge line and whip are purple too.
I agree that red looks horrible on most chestnuts, but my friend rides a mare named Shaniah, and Shaniah's colors are orange with a red browband, brown saddle, and red saddleseat. I think its cute.
and our QH gelding, Buddy- is ridden in all neutral colors except for his bright red reins! I find red to be a very attractive ACCENT color on chestnuts, so you might do well with navy and red!
but then again...Puddin' has a red headstall (she had a mahogany stained brown headstall but it snapped) and she doesn't look all that bad.
I really like blues & greens on sorrels.
