It is not the color of the horse but what is in that year. If you do not show it does not matter. Also depends on what you show in.

that is my though exactly. Brown goes with anything, doesn't it?

honestly as long as the saddle is tan, black, or brown. it doesn't matter what color the horse it's on. eveb if your going to show. what matters is that your tack matches. but thats only if you show! i know people who ride in a brown western saddle with a black and pink breast collor and a black bridle. lol because thats what they found.

I know what you are meaning , My horse is a buckskin and I dont think any saddle looks good on her except black . I dont like the saddle matching my horse . Like a bay with brown , or a gray with gray .

If you're showing, you'll want your saddle to look good on your horse, but if you're just hacking out on trails, heck, you can have a PINK saddle.

Ditto to NRHAreiner and mom2pride

Unless you plan on showing, it does not matter what tack you put on your horse. As long as it fits and suits your purpose, great!

But if you show, you need to follow the "trends". Dark oil saddles used to be the thing, but now that trend has moved to light oil saddles. Breastcollars used to be in style, now the trend is to not wear one. So if you show, it is more of the fashion you need to keep up with! While at the same time making sure the colors you use complement you and your horse.
