What colors look best on a sorrel horse?
Hello Everyone!

I have a sorrel mare and I'm a total spazz about matching tack, I think they should have a certain color for tack(rains,boots,saddle pad ect.) and what not. Eh, call me crazy lol. Anyway, I simply cannot decide on a color for her so what do you think looks good on a sorrel colored horse? I like loud, bold colors so anything would be great! :D

We need pictures!!

On a sorrel I love aqua, yellow, shades of beige and brown, black and hunters green.

One thing I heard is that red horses look best in jewel tones. So blue, purple and green are the colour groups that you will have the most success looking in. Since you like bright colours I would say aqua, teal, maaaaybe lime depending on your horse's shade of red.

Thank you both for your help! Can you tell me how to post pictures?

My previous horse was Sorrel, and I put her in hunter green. Looked really nice on her! And you attach photos by clicking "Go Advanced" underneath the box you type in. Then you click the little paperclip icon that is on the right of the smiley face. after you do that select browse and then select the photos you want to upload. You are able to upload few pictures at a time. hope that helps!

It depends on the shade of sorrel. I had a sorrel mare who looked fantastic in orange but the same colour looked dreadful on my sorrel gelding.

It will be better when you post pictures :)

My sorrel mare's "theme" is purple/lilac! Everybody has told me that they love the color on her!
