The very important, saddle/tack "Color Dilemma"! ;)

We'll I'm in the beginning stages of my journey to Specialized Saddle ownership!!! I'm beyond excited and have already had my first convo with my area rep and sent in pictures of my gelding! I still have lots to do including deciding on the model I want. I have it narrowed down to the Trail Master and the Featherlight Trail. I think I'm leaning more towards the Trail Master right now but that may change later lol. Sooooo. What color should I order?! I know it's a meaningless aspect but it's one of those things that's just fun to hear opinions on! My gelding is bay and I'm wanting to do lime green tack I think. Here's how he looks in different colors I've tried...
Black synthetic saddle, no pad (just for color reference)

I personally love how black looks on a nice bay like your horse :)

With lime green, I'd go with a black saddle.

Thank you! I'm also pretty partial to black since it can't be a million different shades and look all miss-matched. It does look sharp on him!

This is some great tack Jillybean makes and I want to order something this color scheme with more green maybe.

This. While brown can look lovely, trying to match the exact shade for any other tack (or replacement fenders, etc) is too much of a chore. I will take a black saddle every time!

He's lovely! I think all of the color combos posted thus far are nice :>

My 'vote' (for what its worth) is for black on your bay. Very pretty and easily accessorized.

I did have a two-toned Stubben dressage saddle which was black on top and caramel underneath that was also very stylish. When I wasn't in dressage mode, that color combo limited my choice when selecting fun pads. My favorite pad for those times was this one:
