Show Color Schemes

I need some ideas for a color scheme for showing. Please give me some ideas! Example: black, pink, and white

We need to know what your horse looks like, and maybe your hair color too. Not all colors go well with all types of horse colors, so suggesting a random color won't help much =)

Agree, horse color and maybe the mane/tail color ... then we can help you out!

Ditto.... breed, color, etc would really help otherwise we might accidentally suggest something that looks really really horrible when put on your horse.

Also found this...i don't agree with everything they say, but in general the "wheel" thingy is correct. If you're horse is bay you're lucky and can pull off basically any bright color (will get you noticed better =) Just remember to think about what YOU look good in too. If you still want to tell us your horse's color then we can advise you more, but I hope this helps for now =)

I will be waiting to voice my opinion :) as soon as I know like many others horse color, style - western or english, and what kind of "shows" will you be doing? Only posted so it would notify me when other people do:)

I have a bay horse with a black mane and tail...and a light brownish tan saddle and bridle.

He is also a morgan horse

Lol, I have a bay morgan too! She looks super in bright yellow, but that won't match your tack. I would go with any bright jewel tones that you like. You can go with a deep purple or bright blue, turquoise, green etc. Purple and blue would look nice with a tan saddle too, it'll contrast nicely. I've had my mare in purple and blue and she looked great in both. The main thing is to get colors that are bright and rich, pastel colors will not look that good. If you want to show off your saddle and your horse isn't a very dark bay you can probably get away with black if you want to. My favorite suggestion to you would be purple, but you can pretty much choose whatever color you want =)

I agree with indigosblue on the bright jewel tones, but I do disagree about the pastels if your horse is a darker bay. In my opinion pastels really POP on a darker horse and with the lighter tack I think pastels would bring it all together. Cinny is black but towards the end of summer fades more or less to a bay and I use pastel blue and lime green.... and always get compliments even when he has faded.
