Cross Country Colors?
 
So I have been wondering and even though my horse isn't quite ready to be shown in eventing anytime soon, I've been wondering what colors for cross country would be good for him? I want something that isn't like hunter green or navy blue, thats just boring.

Well, pick whatever colors you want - but Eventing isn't about what colors to go with, it is about your training and performance that is most important.

I would think Burgundy would look nice. Or black and yellow with black being your primary color with a bit of yellow. Or purple.

^^ Purple is awesome. Just thought I'd put that out there lol.
I know that horses dont care but I feel bad if I use a girly color on a male horse xD.
Burgundy would be nice or royal blue (thats what I use :D) maybe light blue.

Get a crazy saddle pad with a big bold print. :D


I'm so simple in my taste. Cougar wears black and white but I decided to be a bit bold and put on a bright green fuzzy on his breast plate.

I was thinking a blue and red. It's boyish and I've seen a chestnut in it.

Maybe burgundy with silver accents? Or royal blue with yellow?

i like doing xc with a white pad [unless im on a grey or a paint/pinto] it pops but does not distract from the horse & i think its classy with white boots =] i will also use hunter and/or navy

I always do XC in Navy Blue and Sunburst Yellow. I picked a base color that wasn't obnoxiously loud but then accented it with a bright color. Looks pretty spiffy :D

I am boring......royal blue and white. It is not too garish (I'm pretty traditional) and it matches the ribbons I plan on winning ;)
