Hunter green, royal blue, and teal all go well on chestnuts.

I have hunter green for my boy, but I'm thinking about getting him some royal blue things, too.

I'm partial to royal blue and dark green on chesnuts and sorrels.

I would really like to see photos if you have them :) The one in your barn on here is a bit poorly lit, and I can't quite tell what colour your beautiful boy really is :)

Royal blue looks great on chestnuts, and so does hunter green. I owned a fiery red chestnut gelding and he looked great in blue. I think good old fashioned white looks classy too :)

My mare is a very red-tone chestnut (well, in the summer). Our colors are pink and purple. Our "traditional color" is navy - which looks gorgeous on her.

Of course, you have a *him* not a *her* so pink and purple wouldn't quite fit. LOL. Turquoise looks stunning on chestnuts - or if you wanted something less "bright", teal is a little more toned down than turquoise I think.

I like navy on red horses =]

Subscribing....I was just thinking about this the other day....dont mean to take over your thread or anything....but do you guys think Rodeo would look good in a navy? What else? Not a huge fan of green...

My rule of thumb: Hobby Horse Clothing Co. - Description

Click on each section for more info. This hasn't failed me yet!
