A Certain Colour Horse needs a Certain Colour Saddle?
I was told that if your horses is a certain colour, you need a certain colour saddle. Like, my horse is grey and i was told that you are supposed to put tan tack on them. Is this true?

My horse is grey and I have a black saddle and my friends horse is black and has a tan saddle.

Colour makes no difference what-so-ever, its all personal preference, as long as the saddle fits.

Certain color tack looks best on certain color horses, but otherwise it doesn't matter. It's just what YOU like

Yep, there is no "supposed to". Some horses look better in a certain color but that does not mean that they HAVE to have that color. My saddle is a darkish brown and i use it on every color horse from gray to blood bay to dark bay to sorrel to black and they all look fine. :D

I think the only time it 'may' matter can be in the show ring...sometimes judges can be pretty picky about color schemes...

I would much rather somone look at my horse and say "wow look what he can do" than have them compliment my color scheme. Don't worry about it and concentrate on learning to be a horseman.

If you have the $$ to buy a saddle for every horse you have - go for it. Otherwise, buy a saddle that is comforatble for both you and your horse and don't worry about it. Of course, if your backside is as big as mine, the saddle color won't matter - 'cause no one will be able to see it!!! ;)

i have never heard of that i have a tan saddle i use on my chestnut appy, my black appy, and my buckskin paint and if they were a color scheme for them it would be a hard one to match cause they are realllly colorful just find one you like, and is comfortable to you and yor horse

you want your horse to be complimented with the colors you put on them , tan doesn't even look good on grey ......... whatever looks best but i think that grey horses look good in black , when i want to find a color for a specific colored horse i do like red roan horse being ridden in like google and then look at the pics and see what people put on there red roan and it is so easy that way so yeah i looked and there is just black saddles and like one brown saddle but he is like white .......
